SMU Toastmasters Club is the official public speaking CCA of SMU. We are a branch of Toastmasters International, a multinational non-profit organization that dedicates itself to making leaders through building public speaking skills.

We strive to live up to our slogan – “where leaders are made”.

"I would like to develop and improve my confidence and skill level in public speaking, and there's not better place to do it than SMU Toastmasters, the best in SMU"

- Tsai Min En, School of Accountancy, Year 2

"As someone curious about improving in public speaking, I have heard from friends in Toastmasters that it is a great place to meet like-minded folks, mingle with other people interested in public speaking and building up a public speaking community together! As such, I am very interested in learning more and contributing through participation :)"

- Claire, School of Business, Year 3


Weekly meetings are an opportunity to learn more about public speaking, whether it be through others’ speeches and evaluations, or your own. We have segments for prepared speeches and impromptu speeches, followed by evaluations and an awards ceremony. Come for a meeting and experience it for yourself!

We are “Where Leaders are Made”. From “Motivational Strategies” to “Visionary Communication”, you get to choose your focus in Public Speaking, and work towards it with the Toastmasters community.

There is no experience required to join us. Everyone in SMU Toastmasters, be it a beginner or a seasoned speaker, is there to learn. We have a culture of mentorship, where senior speakers help with speech crafting, stage presence, and management of emotions before a speech. And hopefully, one day you can pay that forward!

We hold visits to sister clubs in other universities, as well as Corporate Clubs (e.g. DBS, ISCA). We have ISTT (International Speech & Table Topics) Competitions, workshops.
