Famous Toastmasters Mainz

est. 1994

Learn to speak from the heart and own the room.
Guests are more than welcome.

Team Famous started its Growth Journey 2023 with the theme Speaking, Gathering, Learning. What a delight it was to meet and learn from and with each other!

We were 9 members and 3 guests. Our Toastmaster of the Evening Russell did an amazing job in guiding us through the session. Susana provided the Word of the Day – relish – which we tried to use as often as possible.

Andreea gave a speech titled “Just a smile” and made us think about how little things can have a huge impact. A smile can make somebody else’s day. Her words inspired us to try it ourselves. Give somebody a smile – it doesn’t cost anything.

To switch it up a bit, Russell shared a video from the International Speech Contest. We saw “I will show you dust” by Carolyne Gathuru. Not only was that an incredibly motivating speech on how to silence the voice in our head that tells us we can’t, but also a great way to bring another flavor of speeches into our club.

We moved on to Table Topics moderated by Michael who let us dive into tribal times in his renowned eloquent way. Great participation by our special guest Oliver from Würzburg Toastmasters, Wendy, Susana, and a duo performance by Russell and Daniel G.

The highlight of the evening came with Anna’s evaluation speech. Giving feedback to Andreea with ease and flow, she didn’t show any signs of being a rookie. We are lucky to have her as a talented evaluator among us!

Our special guest Jan Behling from Business Club Frankfurt evaluated the video contest speech and demonstrated what an elaborated evaluation looks like.

Daniel L. gave an Educational Speech on the Toastmasters Learning Program “Pathways” and presented some valuable insights, especially for recently joined members, but also for experienced Toastmasters and guests.

Susana gave the report as Ah Counter, Jasmin took on the double role as Grammarian and Timekeeper and Oliver was both a charming and honest General Evaluator.

Many thanks to all participants! We hope to see you next time on 9th February.

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.”
