HOW IT WORKS
At Forest toastmasters we encourage everyone in a fun and supportive environment, gently guiding and coaching people out of their comfort zone and into their most calm, confident and impressive self.
The Toastmasters program will help you to:
- Develop better speaking and presentation skills
- Learn to think quickly and clearly on your feet
- Build strong leadership abilities
- Hone your listening skills
The proven way to become a better speaker
Toastmasters will give you the skills and confidence you need to effectively express yourself in any situation. Whether you are a professional, student, stay-at-home parent or retiree, Toastmasters is the most efficient, enjoyable and affordable way of gaining excellent communication skills. By learning to effectively formulate and express your ideas, you open an entirely new world of possibilities. You will be more persuasive and confident when giving presentations, and you’ll improve your one-on-one dealings with others.
Leadership is the art of persuading others to do what you wish to be done. To do so, you need to communicate and you need to work as a team. In Toastmasters, you’ll do both. And you’ll find out how to vary your approach to suit the needs of different people, be they the audience for a speech, the committee for a fundraiser, or the members of your family.
Many people rate public speaking as one of their top three fears so if you are one of those people you are most definitely in the majority. Everyone starts at Toastmasters with butterflies in their stomach and dread filling every fibre of their being. But its okay, because we are there to help you through the fear and do it anyway.
