What is Speechcraft?
Speechcraft is a short course run by Toastmasters that covers the basics of public speaking. It’s been described as ‘jet-powered learning’ by participants, and typically runs for four, six or eight weeks. Group sizes are kept small – usually eight to twelve participants.
District 73 Toastmasters can also run a Speechcraft course at your work. Contact us and we can send a team of our experienced Toastmasters to your company so your employees can learn without even leaving the office.
What do we teach?
Taking a Speechcraft course will help you improve your communication skills and self-confidence. You will learn how to:
- deal with nerves and anxiety
- write and deliver prepared speeches
- improve your impromptu speaking ability
- learn how to give and receive feedback
If you’re looking for longer-term development…
While Speechcraft is a fast and efficient way to improve your confidence and public speaking abilities, joining a Toastmasters club provides a friendly and supportive environment to continually hone your skills.
