An ardent evening of public speaking
Winchmore Hill Gavel Club is an affiliate of Toastmasters International. In the year 2024, we established the club with the purpose of improving public speaking and building leadership skills of young children.
Children build self-confidence and self-awareness; we developed their ability of writing speeches, debating, and delivering speeches. We empowered them to take responsibilities and to take decisions on their leadership roles. They maximized their potential and enjoyed unlimited personal growth.
At the same time, we bring educational programs and prepare them for life developing their emotional intelligence and making them resilient, caring, and open minded to adopt to any situation.
We often tell members they are not just a member of the club, but also a member of a global organization.
