Japan Toastmasters Opens Applications to its Public Speaking Open House

-Join an introductory meeting at one of our more than 200 clubs in Japan
-Learn presentation skills to help advance your career

TOKYO, JAPAN, Nov. 28, 2020- The Japan Toastmasters organization started accepting applications to its free public speaking open houses where you can meet some of our thousands of members for an introduction to English speaking presentation skills, which can help you advance your career in a friendly, fun and professional atmosphere.

Toastmasters will hold online and in person meetings among its hundreds of clubs, which stretch from Sapporo to Tokyo to Naha, from Nov. 6 to Jan. 31. Participation is free and we welcome first timers with little or no experience of public speaking.

The non-profit organization, which has been working for almost 100 years to help people become more confident speakers, communicators and leaders, uses a self-paced learning system and introduces members to presentation skills that they can practice in a friendly, supportive atmosphere at our meetings. In addition to holding the world’s largest speech contest each year, members can learn about writing blogs, giving evaluations and mentoring, in addition to prepared and impromptu speaking.

If you dread the thought of speaking in front of a group, are worried you will forget everything and not know what to do, or simply want to improve your communication skills, then this is the place for you to learn and gain confidence. You can meet like-minded people also working to improve their speaking skills.
