A Typical Club Night

How do we structure our meetings?


Finally, our Club President returns to close the meeting and to present the respective ribbons for best TT Speaker, Speech and Evaluation, and invite any comments from the floor from members/guests.

The President then formally closes the meeting, and we all go home feeling entertained, enlightened, and having usually learnt something new that uniquely only a Toastmasters meeting can give!

Our International Credentials

Chris Boden District 71 International Speech Contest Winner

We have a  proud history at Maidenhead Speakers’ Club of our members achieving successes at the annual Toastmasters Contests.

In 2014, Chris Boden was the first member of our club to reach the dizzy heights of the finals of the International Speech Contest, held in Kuala Lumpur.

See his personal insights into the event here: https://maidenheadspeakers.org.uk/2014/09/09/what-i-did-on-my-holidays


Here is an excellent example of a member’s speech from one of our club nights. It’s experienced Toastmaster Doreen Gowing, with her Competent Communicator speech #5 ‘Inside Out, Outside In’. See what you think!

Steve Catchick achieved success in the Humorous Speech & Table Topics Contest, progressing through the heats in 2014 to finish a very creditable  second place at the Division H Contest. See his winning speech below!
