Toastmasters and Public Speaking
For many people, the fear of public speaking or the inability to speak effectively is preventing them from reaching their goals. That goal could be a new position at work or a career that requires effective communication skills. Maybe you are someone who has a lot to share, but just can’t seem to find the right words.
If this sounds like you, there is good news! You CAN learn the communication and leadership skills necessary to achieve your dreams. Hillcrest Toastmasters is ready to help you. Among the members of our club, we have some remarkable success stories. We’ve been where you are now, and we want to help you in your personal success journey. Helping others is our passion!

The History of Toastmasters
Hillcrest Toastmasters, Area 32, Metro Division, District 50 is a vibrant club. Although we were chartered in June of 2001, we earned President’s Distinguished Club status in just our second year, a remarkable accomplishment! We have been President’s Distinguished every year since, 2002 to 2019. Now in our nineteenth year, Hillcrest is as strong as ever. We are able to accomplish this through the support and active participation of our members and club leaders and through a well thought-out program that can help you become successful quickly — that way we all win. We are pleased to say that our club is truly eclectic. It is a wonderful mix of men and women, representing all ages, with many diverse ethnicities.
We meet on Monday evenings from 6:45 to 8:15. at Whole Foods Market, 11700 Preston Road #714. Anyone is welcome as a guest without prior arrangement.
