Most people join a public speaking club because they have a need to speak in front of an audience. The type of audience varies greatly including business presentations, giving or receiving an award, wedding speeches, addressing a local society. The list is practically endless. Most members join with a goal in mind but stay on as they grow to enjoy the fun at every meeting.
Whether you believe it or not, you are not alone! The chances of breaking out all over in a sweat, being giddy with fear or dying of stage fright are extremely slim. Your audience will more likely be interested in what you have to say than sweaty bits and wobbly knees. Even the best speakers started somewhere, going through the same feelings as you when facing an audience.
One thing you are guaranteed, you will have your own personal time when everyone will listen attentively to what you have to say! Toastmasters is the best place to learn, build your confidence, and to push yourself outside your comfort zone. It’s a safe place where there is no penalty for failure.
As a guest you can attend as many meetings as you like. At Woodford Green Speakers, we have a very open and supportive environment, that will encourage you to learn and grow at your own pace. If you choose to develop your speaking skills with us, following the Toastmasters programme, you are invited to become a member of the club.
We invite you to attend our next meeting to experience it for yourself!
