Speechcraft is a program designed to help you develop public speaking skills. During the program, you will learn and practice speaking and evaluation skills, and you will have the opportunity to learn from experienced speakers.
You will learn and practice in a friendly, non-threatening environment, not in a classroom. There are no teachers nor instructors. You will be learning these speaking skills with other people who are there for the same reason you are. You will be guided in your learning by people just like you, who once feared public speaking and have successfully developed their public speaking skills. Together you will help one another grow and develop as speakers. And, best of all, you will have fun as you learn.
In the program, each participant receives a Toastmasters Speechcraft Handbook, a valuable reference material after the program is finished. The initial prepared speeches are designed with the novice speaker in mind, so don't worry if you don't have much experience. You will then assigned a variety of short speeches to help you develop competency, including impromptu speaking.
Keep in mind that your progress in the program depends on the effort you put into it. If you prepare for each session and participate actively, you will enjoy improved speaking skills and increased self-confidence that will benefit you in all areas of your life.
