Speechcraft Overview

Speechcraft overview

Speechcraft is a brief training course, between 5 and 8 weeks in length, which helps people develop public speaking and leadership skills.  Do you need to communicate more effectively at work, home or socially? Do you want to present your ideas convincingly in an organised and logical manner? Are you looking to improve your self confidence in front of an audience?

You will gain confidence in aspects of communication, including written and impromptu speeches, audio-visual aids, body language, active listening and critical evaluation. The Speechcraft program exposes each participant to a wide range of communication and learning experiences. Each participant receives a professionally published Toastmaster International Speechcrafter Manual plus a range of learning materials. Participants prepare and present speeches in a relaxed atmosphere. Speeches are designed with the novice in mind – you do not need any experience!!

During each meeting, short impromptu speaking sessions are conducted to help you learn to think on your feet. After each presentation you receive a constructive speech evaluation, initially from the course trainers and then from your peers. This process recognises speaker’s strengths and provides valuable guidance on how future presentations may be improved.

Each participant is encouraged to embrace the Toastmasters International motto: Better Listening, Better Thinking, Better speaking

At the end of the course you will receive a signed Certificate of Completion.
