The Krannert Graduate Toastmasters Club is a chapter of Toastmasters International, which focuses specifically on developing public speaking and leadership skills for future leaders from Purdue University. The Toastmasters Club meets at Rawls 2082 on Tuesday in every 2 weeks (the schedule may change accordingly due to Krannert academic schedule).
The members present prepared speeches and impromptu speeches. The speakers get evaluated as per the Toastmasters guidelines and it gives the members a great opportunity to organize meetings professionally and enhance their public speaking skills in the process. Almost all corporate organizations have Toastmasters Club and area level meetings, which involve other corporate Toastmasters Clubs and provide great networking opportunities for the members.
Please see the meeting schedule below to determine your fit and how Toastmasters can help you achieve holistic professional development. Typically every meeting has a business school theme in it and the whole meeting revolves around the theme. An example of a theme being ‘Business Networking’ which received significant participation. However, the theme is not limited the ones in business field, to provide more opportunities for non-business school students.
Few of the benefits of becoming a member are: 1. Every new member will be assigned a mentor who will guide the new member through the competent communicator and competent leadership certifications, 2. Several corporate and non-profit organizations have shown interest in Toastmasters members who show drive and enthusiasm in improving business communication skills, 3. Krannert professors, career services and KGSA endorsement helps us drive the membership fees to minimal helping students to gain access to important material and resources.

Also, feel free to attend one meeting as a guest to assess if the club is the right fit for your development.
