Speechcraft gives people the chance to learn these skills in an engaging, fun, short course. We look forward to helping many Oakville residents achieve their best.

Is there an age limit?

Participants must be 18 years of age or older.

How does the workshop work?

You will experience a wide range of communication experiences. You will receive a Toastmasters Speechcraft Handbook and other valuable reference materials. The initial prepared speeches are designed with the novice speaker in mind. No experience is needed. A variety of assigned short speeches helps you develop confidence and competency. After giving a short, prepared speech, you receive a constructive speech evaluation.

How will I benefit from the workshop?

By participating in a Speechcraft program, you will learn how to speak without fear in front of small and large groups of people and to prepare effective speeches in a limited time frame. You will improve your presentation skills and win the respect and admiration of your colleagues. You will also learn to lead effective meetings and increase your management potential.

What if I want to keep learning after the workshop is over?

You can visit a Toastmasters Club such as First Oakville Toastmasters and for a small semi-annual fee to become a member. This will give you the opportunity to participate in weekly meetings and have access to a full range of resources. First Oakville Toastmasters meets every Thursday evening from 7:15 to 9:30 p.m. Please see our website at
