The Sport of Speech can help you get over your fear, develop your natural communication skills, realize your true potential and have a great time doing it.
Focus on your content and your audience and see how quickly the nerves disappear. This is one of the great secrets of being a great public speaker:
To be at our best, we need to work out. If you would like to speak with the agility of an auctioneer, practice these exercises every day.
For you to become a winning public speaker, it’s going to take time and practice in front of a live audience and that’s what’s available at Toastmasters.
Public speaking is like any other performance-based activity. Just like golf, you can be really good if you take the time to find a good instructor and practice, practice, practice.
There is nothing quite like a living, breathing, live audience. If a live audience isn’t available, however, there’s always a “Virtual Audience”.
