Public speaking in Leeds

Do you want to develop your public speaking skills? Get confident talking in front of others? Improve your general communucation? Become a better leader? Meet interesting and friendly people? Try something totally different? Have fun?

If you answer yes to any of those questions, our clubs might be for you!

We are Leeds City Toastmasters and White Rose Speakers, two of over 16,000 clubs that are part of Toastmasters International, the world’s largest non-profit organisation dedicated to public speaking.

Our members are of varied ages and backgrounds – we have some experienced speakers, and a lot of enthusiastic amateurs. The two things they have in common are a passion for personal development and a commitment to having fun whilst improving.

No matter which club you visit or join, you will find that all are welcome and that our clubs are a safe place to fail – we’re all in the same situation and we place a lot of emphasis on encouraging each other.

Interested? Why not come along to a meeting or two to find out more? No need to tell us you’re coming – just show up!

Leeds City Toastmasters meet on the 1st, 3rd and, if there is one, 5th Thursdays of each month at the Novotel hotel, 4 Whitehall Quay, Leeds, LS1 4HR near Leeds railway station. Full details on the venue can be found here.

White Rose Speakers meet on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month at the Jurys Inn hotel, Brewery Place, Leeds, LS10 1NE. Full details on the venue can be found here.

You are welcome to visit one or both of our clubs. Although we share this website each club is run independently and has different members and committees and you may find that one suits you better than the other.

Meetings at both begin at 7pm sharp, so we advise you to be there for around 6:45pm.
