A NEW CLUB IS BORN: NTHU Toastmasters
Posted Date: 2018-02-07
NTHU Toastmasters was established on Oct. 2017 with 25 new members beating all
odds, with the ambitious goal of becoming “the most fun, enlightening, innovative club in
NTHU and later district 67. Our regular meeting has seen an average of 25 members, that is
the unfathomable reason that the students needed to have NTHU Toastmasters to learn more.
We have attracted creative and ambitious members who are willing to accept challenges.
These enthusiastic members are always bringing new and innovative ideas to the table. We
all benefit from these ideas. We ensure that everyone live by the Toastmasters international
mission and our own club audacious goal.
We are in complete alliance with the Toastmasters International mission to get members to
step out of their comfort zones, cultivating leadership skills, and overcoming stage fright. The
ability of communicating in English with ease is a necessary skill not to mention in this era of
globalization. In our regular meeting, we can “listen” to speeches from others, we can “talk”
about our own ideas and thoughts. After finishing delivering a speech, you will get
constructive and concrete feedback from other members, which help you improve and grow
Aside from having regular meetings, the club also arranges outings and parties, to provide
chances of meeting friends and people from diverse background. We have visited Google
headquarters, Taipei and we did learn a lot! we all remember what the vice general manager
said, “being good at coding can get you in Google, but being good at communicating will take
you high up in the organization”, emphasizing the importance of communication once again!
Besides, we held a fantastic Christmas party in NTHU, attracting members or even nonmembers
to participate in, which reinforced the friendship among people from different
backgrounds If you are willing to know friends from various fields, embrace challenges, love
to listen and share, you’re welcome to join NTHU Toastmasters! We’re all imperfect, but we
are eager and passionate to train, to cultivate ourselves being a better person. You will
definitely benefit from joining us!
