Be Ready to Speak, to Present Your Ideas to Others and Be Ready to Lead People

    • Are you comfortable presenting material to work colleagues, committee members or friends?
    • Do you have an opportunity for promotion?
    • Are you looking for a ‘step up’ in your career?
    • Can you effectively share your ideas with a committee?
    • Will you give the bride away?
    • Would you like to learn effective skills in communicating with colleagues, committee members and friends?
    • Would you like to learn how to give constructive feedback to people?

      We recommend: Toastmasters Speechcraft

      Speechcraft is a short, intensive speaking course. Toastmasters will guide you in learning public speaking and presentation skills, giving you information on how to reply to questions ‘off the cuff’.

      In addition, you will learn how to give constructive feedback to colleagues, committee members and friends.

      When the Toastmasters Speechcraft course concludes you will have public speaking skills, presentation skills and the ability to assist colleagues, committee members and friends to grow. You will be ready to apply for a promotion or a new job or to speak at personal functions.  And you will be able to effectively answer questions posed to you.

      For employers: This is an opportunity for staff to become more comfortable speaking with and presenting to clients.  Toastmasters can arrange an ‘in-house’ Speechcraft Course for your company.

      For more information, email:

      As noted above, courses are coming up soon in Parramatta, Newcastle, Rouse Hill, Dee Why, Wallsend, Newcastle, Roseville and Forestville.

      Since 1924 Toastmasters International (a not for profit organisation) offered people training in communication and leadership skills.  Currently more than 345,000 members worldwide benefit from the Toastmasters Program.
