Speechcraft Program

What is Speechcraft?

Speechcraft is a program to develop your public speaking ability and so much more. The program is not held in a classroom, and you don’t receive a grade. You will gain confidence in all aspects of communication, including written and impromptu speeches, audio-visual aids, body language, active listening and critical evaluation. Your course coordinators are accomplished Toastmasters who present the fundamentals of public speaking and effective communication in a relaxed atmosphere similar to their own Toastmasters Club environment.

Learn by doing

In Speechcraft, you will learn through practice and by studying the professionally prepared materials provided. Through participation you will become an experienced and poised presenter. Your Toastmaster mentors will help you prepare for your short presentations. Fortunately, public speaking is a skill that can be learned. In just a few short sessions, you may not get rid of the butterflies in your stomach, but you’ll certainly have them flying in your stomach, but you’ll certainly have them flying in formation!

How will Speechcraft help you?

Speechcraft will help you communicate more effectively at work, home and socially. You will learn to organize and present your ideas logically and convincingly. In doing so you will develop the self-confidence you need to handle any speaking situation with ease. On the job, you will be able to work more effectively with your employer, associates, subordinates, and clients. Conversation at home with your family, or socially with your friends, will become more relaxed and enjoyable. At the end of the course you will receive a signed Certificate of Completion ready for addition to your portfolio or resume.
