- (1888PressRelease) May 02, 2011 - Sydney, NSW - Ashfield Toastmasters has announced that the next Speechcraft program to be held at Club Ashfield will begin on May 26th. Speechcraft is the public speaking skills training course implemented by Toastmasters to help even the most nervous to gain an edge in life through the development of confident communication skills.
Every event in life is marked with a speech. Many are sufficiently scared of public speaking to forgo the opportunity rather than face the embarrassment and fear of speaking. Luckily public speaking skills are something everyone can learn. At Toastmasters, with practical public speaking skills training such as Speechcraft participants learn good communication skills in a relaxed, fun and supportive environment.
Speechcraft is the program for any person who wants to perform better at interviews, networking events and in any situation where impromptu speaking takes place. It is also suitable for people seeking to gain confidence in themselves and their speech. It is not a course limited to people wishing to be professional speakers. Speechcraft is a practical course teaching speaking skills that serve participants in their daily lives.
The next Speechcraft course taking place at Ashfield Toastmasters will begin on May 26th and continue one Thursday evening a fortnight over 8 fortnights at Club Ashfield. The course is taught by experienced Toastmasters and includes active participation to develop skills, not just theoretical learning.
Participants are provided with a comprehensive manual and short educationals in each Speechcraft session. There are opportunities to practice impromptu speaking skills and prepared project speeches.
Ashfield Toastmasters includes four Distinguished Toastmasters, a number of Advanced Communicators and Competent Communicators who started out in programs such as Speechcraft. One such toastmaster is the District 70 Treasurer Kerry McNally who recently performed the MC role for Ashfield's fifth anniversary celebrations. A man who pre-Toastmasters had passed up opportunities in life because they involved speeches.
The program is open to people from all walks of life and nationality. In the multi-cultural Sydney suburb of Ashfield new members regularly attend just to develop their English and English speaking skills.
