Guests are more than welcome.

A huge shoutout to the energetic crowd attending our meeting on 23rd March! We were 12 members and 4 guests, including Janosch who was visiting from Wiesbaden Toastmasters. Participants dialed in from at least six different countries – from the USA and Brazil, to Luxembourg, Germany and Romania, over to Taiwan. We deeply admire our member Iara’s commitment! She pulled an all-nighter to join us.

As Toastmaster of the Evening, Jasmin introduced the thought-provoking theme – Grit or Quit, and guided us smoothly through the session.

With her speech titled Is sleep a superpower?, Susana made us reflect on our sleeping habits and the potential we might be wasting. Who knows, maybe we could keep up with our Superheros if we had more and better sleep?

As a second speaker, Russell invited Marianna Pascal onto the virtual stage and presented the video of the Humorous Speech Contest 2009. Her speech with the title Local English or Standard English was fun to watch and had quite a unique charm.

Daniel G. was a lovely Table Topics Master and engaged members and guests with some brilliant questions.

Anna once again gave a fantastic evaluation for Susana’s speech and seized the opportunity to practice for the division contest. Russell facilitated a panel evaluation for the recorded speech – a great way to make us learn and include everyone.

Willy served as Ah Counter, Daniel L. jumped in as Timekeeper, and Andreea, who provided the Word of the Day Helplessness, was a very helpful Grammarian. Our General Evaluator Jonas delivered compliments for the overall meeting as well as some very useful suggestions for improvement.

Thanks to everyone who took part in our Famous meeting for making this gathering special!

Build a Better You

Are you looking for a fun way to improve your communication and build skills to help in your career? Toastmasters allows you to engage with people who share similar interests to you in a supportive and comfortable setting.

Improve Communication

Whether you are a mature manager, student, young professional, career advancer or looking to make an impact in your community, Toastmasters is the most efficient, supportive, enjoyable and affordable way of gaining great communication skills.

By learning to effectively formulate and express your ideas, you open an entirely new world of possibilities.

Build Leadership Skills

Effective leaders empower others to accomplish personal goals and contribute to the successful completion of group objectives.

While some are born confident, charismatic leaders, others must work to develop their leadership skills. Through Toastmasters, you’ll gain the practice to become the leader and speaker you want to be. You will also sharpen your management skills, become a better negotiator, gain trust and inspire your team. Learn to be decisive!


“I like the positive atmosphere in our club. We are a very diverse group of people in terms of backgrounds and culture. That continues to inspire me. Each meeting gives me energy and I always come back for more. I receive a lot of encouragement from my fellow Toastmasters on my journey to improve my speaking skills. Step by step, I can see and feel how I become a more and more confident speaker, talking in front of many people while being totally at ease. Thanks FTM now and in the future!”


“I like the stories which are shared during our meetings. I love the mixture of backgrounds, stories, experiences, and viewpoints presented here. Toastmasters is inspiring me, I feel great during the meetings and always looking forward to the next one.”


“Famous has a great supportive atmosphere. People care about each other and their projects. And last but not least – meetings are immense fun!”


“FTM has been a wonderful experience for me – meeting many new friends and learning from many cultures and nationalities. I’ve picked up many techniques for improving my speaking. I especially enjoyed the competitions and conferences. But the most rewarding experience has been mentoring and encouraging new members, watching them improve their English and become excellent speakers.”


“I really like the international atmosphere with members from all over the world. I also like the possibility to visit a lot of other Toastmasters clubs. It gives me insights that I hardly get anywhere else.”
