The goal of Toastmasters is to improve our public speaking and develop our leadership skills. In Ghent we try to create a fun and comfortable setting to do this. Toastmasters Gent is a bilingual club (Dutch/English). Every member can choose in which language he or she will speak, so our meetings are also a good opportunity to practice your languages.
If you stay in Toastmasters until you get everything Toastmasters has to offer, you’ll never leave! – Joy Gaylord
