The Speechcraft program:
  – Is designed for beginners in public speaking
  – Is a hands-on program that provides the “how-to” and practical experience in public speaking and leadership
  – Is cost effective; the cost for a 6-8 week Speechcraft is significantly less than other public speaking and leadership courses
  – Promotes an atmosphere of professional camaraderie dedicated to personal improvement

How does the Program work?

Each Speechcraft participant experiences a wide range of communication experiences. Each participant receives a Toastmasters Speechcraft Handbook and other valuable reference materials. The initial prepared speeches are designed with the novice speaker in mind. No experience is needed. A variety of assigned short speeches help participants develop competency. During each meeting a short impromptu speaking session is conducted to help participants learn to think and speak effectively on their feet. After giving a prepared speech, each participant receives a constructive speech evaluation. Upon completion of the basic course, you will have the option to continue your training at a Toastmasters Club.
