Background -- What CCTC is all about Edit

The CCTC provides a platform for experienced Toastmasters (i.e. CTM / CC & CL, and higher levels) to explore and learn more advanced levels of Leadership and Communication skills than are generally available at Club level; more time is available for longer presentations and thorough evaluations, e.g. through panel discussions.

The CCTC also provides a forum of specialised education in the Western Cape: we have presented Success/Communication and Success/Leadership and other relevant workshops by experienced Toastmasters and non-Toastmaster specialists.

We commit to continue to provide an effective platform for our members and many guests to fulfil our motto, to Advance in Excellence!

All Toastmasters and Non-Toastmasters guests are most welcome to attend our meetings, on the third Monday evening of the month in Pinelands…

History -- how CCTC Started Edit

EXCITING MILESTONE FOR TOASTMASTERS IN WESTERN CAPE, SOUTH AFRICA: District 74, Division D

It took eleven months, from conception to Charter, for dedicated Toastmasters in the Cape Town and Stellenbosch areas to plan and create a very special type of Toastmasters Club, a Club for "Advanced" Toastmasters.

The Cape Communicators Toastmasters Club # 824752, or CCTC, chartered after 9 brief meeting months, on 25 October 2005, only the second Advanced Toastmasters Club in South Africa to charter!

This amazing achievement was celebrated with a Gala Dinner at Kelvin Grove in Newlands on 20 February 2006.

A special small team of dedicated and enthusiastic Toastmasters and non-Toastmaster supporters of the CCTC planned the event to honour the Charter Committee, to celebrate the birth and growth of the Club, to promote the Club's special opportunities for development to local Toastmasters, and to gain inspiration from our member achievements as well as from the wonderful and entertaining speech by our Guest Speaker, Olympic Swimmer and Medallist Marianne Kriel – the highlight of the evening!
