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.
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.
Mallorca Wordsmiths was founded in April 2002 by Debbie Cameron with the help of Ralph Arroyo. The first meetings were held at the Santa Ponsa Country Club. Debbie was awarded District 59 Toastmaster of the Year in 2005. Under the name of Mallorca International Toastmasters the club hosted the first ever District 59 Conference to be held in Spain – with over 270 TM attending from all over Europe. In 2008/9 the name was changed to Mallorca Wordsmiths and after a few changes in venues they were incredibly lucky to find the Hotel Horizonte, whom support the club one hundred per cent.
In 2012 under the guidance of the new President – Sebastian Lora it was decided to change the meetings from all English speaking to speaking Spanish the first and third week of the month and English the second and fourth week. This was a great success. In the last few years many changes have been made. Guest speaker nights, theme nights, tapas nights, contests and bring a guest night have all been part of the success the club now enjoys. This being the reason many members and guests now attend the meetings each week.
