Odyssey Project

We invite you on a fantastic journey. A journey full of new acquaintances, new locations and unexpected meetings with fellow Toastmasters from the entire world! A journey where you will discover new potential & new strength as a mentor or a mentee. A journey in search of a better self. In search for amazing friends.

On this journey, you may face challenges & overcome fears, find opportunities & unfold new abilities like Odysseus did in his travel.

This journey will last as long as you want. And there is no better time to start than NOW.
