UM Masters Toastmasters

Welcome to UM Masters

University of Manitoba Toastmasters (UM Masters) club has an 20 years long celebrated history of helping people develop confidence in their speaking and improve their listening, thinking and speaking skills. We continually encourage and support one another to be the best that we can be. 

Our District theme this year is "Explore Your Potential".

With a dedicated executive, We are confident that our club will once again excel in achieving the highest status as a President's Distinguished club.

Ralph Smedley, founder of Toastmasters International once said "we learn best in moments of enjoyment". We always come away from our noon meeting inspired and full of enthusiasm. We have made many friends along my journey in Toastmasters and look forward to many more moments of enjoyment.
