The Krannert Graduate Toastmasters Club is a chapter of Toastmasters International, which focuses specifically on developing public speaking and leadership skills for future leaders from Purdue University. The members present prepared speeches and impromptu speeches. The speakers get evaluated as per the Toastmasters guidelines and it gives the members a great opportunity to organize meetings professionally and enhance their public speaking skills in the process. Almost all corporate organizations have Toastmasters Club and area level meetings, which involve other corporate Toastmasters Clubs and provide great networking opportunities for the members.
The Krannert Toastmasters Club is dedicated to helping build Purdue student speaking and leadership skills. We do this through speeches, opportunities to lead meetings, and public speaking events. We have been particularly successful in helping non-native English speakers improve their communication skills.
Since we are part of an international organization, members pay dues to help cover the cost of literature and administration. This cost, while small, can be significant to the college students we are attempting to reach. If you so desire, we would greatly appreciate any financial assistance you can offer to help sponsor these students.
