John Cantu



Welcome to — We are a specialty Toastmasters club formed in honor of the late John Cantu.

Our focus: adding more humor to our speeches, stories and lives.

This is not your father's Toastmasters Club. We feature "headliners" -- professional speakers, comedians, storytellers or humorists -- who give a guest presentation each month at the Club. It's our opportunity to see how the pros do it and ask them questions about how to create, craft and deliver their material. Then members perform, to practice skills and get supportive feedback from the group.

We meet once a month on the third Sunday of the month, 6pm - 8pm, St. Paul's Towers (100 Bay Place), Oakland, CA.

So come and join us — the laugh's on us!

Meanwhile, persue our website, read articles, listen to audio and video files and support the headliners who generously give their time and expertise to Toastmasters.

Craig Harrison DTM, PDG
