Toastmasters are people who want to improve their communication and leadership skills in a supportive learn-by-doing environment. This Meetup group lists club meetings and events in Sydney and surrounds, making it easy to find a club near you. Toastmasters clubs are free to visit and every club has 3 main parts:
• Impromptu Speaking
• Prepared Speeches
As a Toastmaster, you'll learn:
• How to give an impromptu speech
• How to give a prepared speech
• How to evaluate what you hear
• How to introduce speakers
• How to chair and run meetings
And all of these skills will help you develop greater self-confidence.
Want to speak to someone about it before you visit, or looking for a club that's not listed here? Call 1300 653 876 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Newlake club runs fun themed meetings. We have a word of the week, an opportunity to practice impromptu speaking, and a segment of the meeting for members to present prepared speeches. All speakers receive supportive feedback on what was done well and a way the speech could be enhanced. In this fun supportive environment we learn speaking and leadership skills. We utilise the Toastmasters International education program. See http://newlake.toastmastersclubs.org or Newlake Toastmasters Facebook page for more information, or email [masked].
Come along, sit back and listen, or participate in the impromptu speaking session, and see where public speaking could take you.
