Our Club

Who we are

We are a rhetoric club in which members can practice public speaking and hone their leadership skills in accordance with the proven principles of Toastmasters International.

What we are not

We are not an academic course in rhetoric. This means that we don’t have any omniscient teachers; rather, our people learn on their own—by doing, by example, and by means of constructive feedback from other members of the group. Consequently, it’s vital for each individual member and for every club guest that members show up—not merely to deliver their own speeches, but also to listen, to provide feedback, and to moderate the proceedings. These tasks are outlined quite specifically in the Toastmasters promise.[:]

How we speak

We are a bilingual club—hence we speak both German and English. However, we are not a language course for the purpose of language acquisition. Rather, we are a platform for applying and strengthening skills in both German and English. In this way, we also serve as a platform for intercultural exchange and learning.

What we believe

Toastmasters International, as a whole, and the Hamburg International Speakers do not discriminate against anyone. This means that neither your religious nor political worldview, nor your skin color, nor your sexual orientation is of any concern to us. What does interest us? Your history, your life experiences, your feedback to our speeches, and your personal growth. If your personal growth is of interest to you as well, then come visit the Hamburg International Speakers—we look forward to seeing you!
