About Area:

North Guelph is a diverse, vibrant and engaging community, one of the safest places in the country, and a fantastic place to call home. In addition to a great university, and college, Guelph is committed to providing lifelong learning opportunities like the Toastmasters educational program.  Their first Toastmasters club (Royal City Toastmasters) was founded in 1958.  Demonstrating a small-town feel and big-city amenities, the area‘s sense of community has led to the establishment of many Toastmasters Clubs around the city and surrounding county - 21 clubs in a population of almost 200,000! The area's Toastmasters members are among the friendliest you will meet and are proud of the area they live in. With the highest employment rate in the country, and Guelph's best since early 2016, its Toastmasters clubs are filled with highly competent individuals who show a willingness to help run its effective educational program. The Toastmasters program includes not only public speaking, but also leadership development that ensures upward mobility.  Whether student or retiree, a job seeker or career professional, an entrepreneur or homemaker, the area’s Toastmasters clubs can offer the personal development you desire.

Area 93 Evaluation & International Speech Contest

The International Speech Contest is the most important of all Toastmasters Contests.  The speech is to be an original speech of 5-7 minutes.  It can be serious, funny, and inspirational. The International Speech Contest is held at the Club, Area, Division, District, and International level.  The International Speech Contest is the only one that goes all the way to the International competition level - and where the World Champion of Public Speaking is decided!

The Evaluation Contest is 2 to 3 minutes in length. A test speaker gives a speech which all the evaluation contestants listen to and then evaluate. The contestants are taken from the room and given five minutes to prepare their evaluations. Then they come back into the room one by one and deliver their evaluations.  The Evaluation Contest is held at the Club, Area, Division, and District level.
