London Communicators
 

About

We are one of the longest established Toastmasters International clubs in London. We also pride ourselves on being one of the friendliest clubs.

London Communicators was founded 20 years ago by Sue Warner and has since helped hundreds of people learn how to speak in public, conquer their fears, and develop their leadership skills. There is always a lot of laughter and applause at a club meeting. Whether you are an accomplished speaker or want to give your first ever speech, it is a hugely supportive place to grow in confidence! Come along as a guest and find out for yourself.

London Communicators is part of a worldwide network of 16,600 clubs that are part of Toastmasters International. Set up over 94 years ago as a non-profit organisation, Toastmasters International provides its members with a proven education programme, called Pathways.

With Pathways, members can choose from eleven paths. The programme helps members improve practical workplace skills such as leadership, project management, interviewing, collaboration and, of course, public speaking. Learn more about Pathways education programme.
