Talk of the Farm Speaking Club

Club meeting

Want to build your confidence? Grow as a leader? Improve your communication and public speaking skills?

Join us at Talk of the Farm to learn how our speaking club can help you achieve your personal and professional goals.

Formerly "Stanford Toastmasters" a club with Toastmasters International, our club provides a safe, free, and effective learning environment for Stanford faculty, staff, graduate students, post-doctoral students, Stanford retirees, and previous club members looking to improve their communication and leadership skills. Although membership in Toastmasters is limited to the aforementioned population, we welcome all visitors. We are also partnering with Stanford UIT Technology Training to provide speaking opportunities beyond scheduled classes.

Don’t be shy—club members represent a wide range of University departments, job functions, and titles, as well as levels and years of professional experience. Our informal and supportive learning environment will help you take your communication skills to the next level.

Guests always welcome
