      Public Speaking Workshop in Huntsville

      Public Speaking Workshop: You can do it! Become the speaker others want to hear. While very few of us are lucky enough to have been born with a natural talent to speak in public without some fear, there is a solution. Toastmasters International has spent the last 94 years helping people with their public speaking needs, and we can help you too!  Toastmasters is a world leader in communication and leadership development with more than 300,000 members improving their speaking and leadership skills by attending one of the 16,400 clubs in 141 countries that make up the global network of meeting locations. Participating in Toastmasters will prepare you for almost any event involving an audience, including presenting a project update, making a toast, contributing your thoughts at a meeting, speaking at a memorial service, teaching classes, leading a discussion group or making a sales pitch to a potential client. In addition, you’ll find advice on managing your stage fright and finding speech topics. Toastmasters is the most efficient, enjoyable, and affordable way of gaining great communication skills. By learning to effectively formulate and express your ideas, you open an entirely new world of possibilities. You can be more persuasive and confident when giving presentations, improve your one-on-one dealings with others, find your voice, communicate your passion and expertise, and even begin to look forward to public speaking. This workshop is a regular meeting of the Hi-Noon Toastmasters Club. We provide a fun and friendly setting and a proven, self-paced skill development program. Our meetings offer a safe space to practice public speaking, improvisation, presentation skills, thinking on your feet and how to remain calm when called upon in group settings. Enjoy the creative off-the-cuff speaking, the inspirational prepared speeches, and the constructive feedback that helps our members improve. The meeting proper is from 12 Noon to 1 p.m. Plan to arrive by 11:50 a.m., so you can be met at the door and introduced to members of our club. You will get a folder with information about the club and Toastmasters, the structure of the meeting will be explained and we will answer any initial questions you may have. After the meeting, there is time to chat and to answer any additional questions you have. Guests often say “it feels like home”. A typical meeting has five to 10 members and guests gathered in our large meeting room with abundant seating. Dress is business casual, but you might also see a suit or jeans. Guests attend for free and there is absolutely no obligation to join. You do not have to speak when visiting our club. You may simply observe if you wish. Learn more at our website. Come visit us Tuesday and learn how to speak confidently on any topic without preparation, how to communicate your ideas clearly, and how to build rapport with your audience.
