Speechcraft Public Speaking Course

Speechcraft is a short training course from Toastmasters International that helps people develop public speaking and leadership skills.

Learn how to be an effective public speaker in six two-hour classes.


The Speechcraft Programme


Do you need to communicate more effectively at work, home or socially? Do you want to present your ideas convincingly in an organised and logical manner? Are you looking to improve your self confidence in front of an audience?

Achieve all your personal goals through the globally recognised Toastmasters International Speechcraft program.

Speechcraft is a series of public speaking classes designed to develop your public speaking ability and so much more. You will gain confidence in all aspects of communication, including written and impromptu speeches, audio-visual aids, body language, active listening and critical evaluation.

Speechcraft programs are conducted in two tailored ways depending on the needs of participants:

  • Public programs are where individuals, either privately or work sponsored, join together.
  • Corporate programs are where an employer hosts a group of employees for in house training.

What You Learn

The Speechcraft program exposes each participant to a wide range of communication and learning experiences. Each participant receives a professionally published Toastmaster International Speechcrafter Manual plus a range of learning materials. Participants prepare and present speeches in a relaxed atmosphere. Speeches are designed with the novice in mind - you do not need any experience!!

During each meeting, short impromptu speaking sessions are conducted to help you learn to think on your feet. After each presentation you receive a constructive speech evaluation, initially from the course trainers and then from your peers. This process recognises speaker's strengths and provides valuable guidance on how future presentations may be improved.

Each participant is encouraged to embrace the Toastmasters International motto:Better Listening, Better Thinking, Better speaking

At the end of the course you will receive a signed Certificate of Completion.

Having graduated from the Speechcraft program, I successfully delivered my best man speech to a 250 person wedding.

Finally I now have a very clear understanding of how to structure my speeches and presentations, the impact of a strong opening and closing and the importance of body language. I should have done this years ago.
