Do you wish you could lose the nerves, capture people’s attention and inspire your audience?
There is a way! But you need to practice and here is a great opportunity to do just that.
As a result of our affiliation we follow a structured method that has been honed over many years for developing a person’s skill as both a speaker and a leader. The Toastmasters approach has two initial programmes, the Competent Communicator and the Competent Leader. Each comprises a ten part programme of structured development, encouraging you to build upon knowledge gained thoroughly, methodically and enjoyably. With a mentor to support you, you can develop your skills at a pace to suit you.
During a regular meeting, you will be able to take part in table topics – a fun event designed to try your ability at speaking at short notice. You’ll be able to develop your skills in leadership roles; such as chairing meetings and evaluation. We also run regular club competitions and compete in wider area competitions too.
Each meeting provides a fun learning programme for those who are complete beginners at public speaking. Yet it also challenges more advanced speakers to hone the skills they already possess.
