The Toastmasters Mission
A statement of shared values
Castlebar Toastmasters club shares the same mission as all Toastmasters clubs, clearly defined in the following mission statement: We provide a supportive and positive learning experience in which members are empowered to develop communication and leadership skills, resulting in greater self-confidence and personal growth. Through this mission, each Toastmaster gains a clear understanding of the club’s purpose, and the organisation as a whole benefits from a shared set of values and goals.

Toastmasters will give you the skills and confidence you need to express yourself effectively in any situation. Whether you are a professional, student, stay-at-home parent or retired, Toastmasters is the most efficient, enjoyable and affordable way of gaining great communication skills. You’ll learn how to:
