I am a member of Seoul Advanced Toastmasters in Apgujeong and Roastmasters in Hyehwa. I am also the webmaster for the Korea Toastmasters Territorual Council (http://www.koreatm.org). There you can find our 34 chartered clubs and about 10 others that are on the verge of chartering that can also use members.
Some clubs once in a while host debates, which can be quite interesting. However, Toastmasters is more about individual speaking, as a well as enhancing your leadership skills through officer roles and events.
I forwarded your first message to Steven and here were his answers:
2. That's a nifty idea. In fact, I'm going to see if we can get a Meetup.com feed to import into a couple of our relevant pages. Thanks. 3. Nothing I can do about that as that stuff's all controlled at the Ning interface level.
Please forward your other suggestion to him as well:
re: "PPS: You maybe should think about free (cross-)promotion with other Korea-based (English) websites outside of the business area. Because I frankly know a dozen language & leisure website related to Korea, but only now I came up with KBC! ;) There you got a new point #3. ^.^"
