Comments on the Club Visit Program


The club visit contest gave club members a reason to step outside their comfort zone and participate in a different Toastmasters environment. For the hosting club, it was an opportunity to display their qualities and really impress. I thought it was a great idea – personally learned a lot from my visits which I will more than likely apply in my roles at my club meetings.

Having other members visit us, automatically changed the atmosphere of the meeting – club members were excited and encouraged. Most club members did not realise that the guests were members of Toastmasters. Having a new face at a club meeting can have a big impact. Also, speaking in front of a new audience improves an individual. I felt like I was at my very first Toastmasters meeting when I visited another club. I am slowly improving how to manage nervousness. In my opinion the club visitation program is a win-win.

At Gosnells Foothills I would like to see general evaluations for the meetings and evaluators by experienced Toastmasters. We don’t have this on the meeting agenda unless we are visited by the Area or Division Director. Every club I visited had this role, which has a lot of value.


Shayne [Gosnells]


On the whole the club visits were successful and there were take home points two of which were club growth and website development-at Southern River we will adopt these.  I certainly enjoyed the other team member visits, this assists in getting to know other toastmasters and builds camaraderie.

I suggest we do this contest for every six month period.

Kind regards,

Laz [Armadale]
