Toastmasters' Speechcraft course
Speechcraft is a "crash course" in effective communication, a highly effective introduction to developing your communication and leadership skills... teaching participants the basics of public speaking.
The course starting in Tamworth on Wednesday February 22, 2017 will run for six weeks on Wednesday nights from 7pm (arrive at the venue by 6:45).
No prior experience in public speaking is necessary.
The course is conducted in a friendly supportive environment. A professional camaraderie forms between course participants and presenters during the course, all of which makes the learning process enjoyable.
There are normally between 10 to 15 participants in each course.
Participants each receive a Communication Handbook which contains a number of speech projects to work through during the course.
As well as learning by doing – participants usually deliver speeches every other week of the course, receiving constructive feedback and evaluation – presenters deliver educational sessions designed to help participants to improve their confidence speaking in front of others, communication skills, presentation skills and speech preparation skills.
Educationals cover areas like Topic Selection, How To Prepare Your Speech, Gestures & Body Language, Voice & Vocal Variety, Presentation & Delivery Techniques and How To Evaluate Other Speakers.
The course fee, which is set at $180, covers all material costs, including the Communication Handbook with valuable reference material for participants, and membership of the Toastmasters Club if desired.
The course will take place at our regular meeting venue, McCarthy Catholic College in Tribe Street. Park in the main carpark and follow the signs.
This is a very worthwhile investment in yourself!
