Webinar Description

Most people would say that their ultimate number one fear is Public Speaking. Bizarrely though rather not surprisingly, this rates higher than loneliness, networking, darkness and even death! That’s right, as Jerry Seinfeld once said ‘if you do go to a funeral, you’re better off in the casket than doing the eulogy!’

As project leaders though, communication is a vital key tool in our ‘professional locker’. And like most tools we use, we are only as honed as it is. So, if you are keen to sharpen your ‘speaking blade’ to;

  • Improve Your Presentation and Project Relationship Skills
  • Grow Your Confidence and
  • Develop as a Leader

Find out how being a Toastmaster provides a safe, supportive and fun environment for you to learn all the ‘tools of the trade’ in developing your speaking mastery.

You will learn;

  • How Toastmasters is about much more than speaking, it’s about
    • Leadership
    • Listening
    • Giving effective feedback
