Up until the early 90s, the Toastmasters movement in Hong Kong remained a small community of only a few clubs. It was only in the late 90s that the Toastmasters movement in Hong Kong started to pick up pace, after having joined the bigger Toastmasters community in the Pan-Asean region as part of District 51.
Since then, men and women from all walks of life, such as professionals and university students, have joined in and reaped the benefits of participating in the Toastmasters programs. Many have become prominent members in all sectors of society – banking, politics, civil services, professional disciplines, education, etc.
Currently we have around 50 Toastmasters clubs in Hong Kong, conducting meetings in either English, Putonghua or Cantonese. Toastmasters clubs in Hong Kong today belong to either Division H, K or G. All three of these Divisions are under Toastmasters International District 89, comprised of clubs in mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau.
