Welcome to Sunday Sundowners Toastmasters Club

Sunday Sundowners Toastmasters Club is based in Perth, Western Australia, Australia. We meet Every Sunday at 4:00 PM AWST. We meet in person every second week and every week on Zoom.

SSTC as we sometime like being known held its first meeting in March 2015, and we chartered with 20 members in June 2015.

We have been President’s Distinguished every year, but when Covid-19 struck WA in March 2020, many of our members resisted moving online. (Just like most clubs around the world.)

To solve this dilemma, we encouraged visits from members around the world, and today we are proud to have members from the USA – California, New York and Florida, Japan, Zimbabwe, Kenya and Mozambique.

What’s in it for you?

Toastmasters is a place where you develop and grow – both personally and professionally. You join a community of learners, and in Toastmasters meetings we learn by doing. Whether you’re an executive or a stay-at-home parent, a college student or a retiree, you will improve yourself; building skills to express yourself in a variety of situations. You’ll open up a world of new possibilities: giving better work presentations; leading meetings – and participating in them – more confidently; speaking more smoothly off the cuff; even handling one-on-one interactions with family, friends and colleagues more positively.

How Does it work?

The environment in a Toastmasters club is friendly and supportive. Everyone at a Toastmasters meeting feels welcome and valued – from complete beginners to advanced speakers. In a club meeting, you practice giving prepared speeches as well as brief impromptu presentations, known as Table Topics. There is no rush and no pressure: The Toastmasters program allows you to progress at your own pace.

Constructive evaluation is central to the Toastmasters philosophy. Each time you give a prepared speech, an evaluator will point out strengths as well as suggest improvements. Receiving – and giving – such feedback is a great learning experience. In Toastmasters, encouragement and improvement go hand-in-hand.

Leaders are Good Communicators

Good leaders are good communicators

Anyone who is a strong leader has to first be an effective communicator. In Toastmasters you will hone your speaking skills, and you will develop leadership abilities – through evaluations, listening, mentoring, serving as club officers and filling roles in club meetings. You will take those leadership skills out into the world, running businesses, mentoring youths, organizing fund-raisers, coaching teams and heading up families.
