Public Speaking Training

Some people would rather jump out of a plane than speak in public. Many people feel uncomfortable when speaking in public or addressing large groups. Their throats tighten up, their heart starts thumping and their faces begin to blush – all good reasons to keep quiet. Good speaking skills can open doors, advance your career, improve your social life or enhance your involvement in the community.

Poor public speaking skills can close doors – you get passed over for a job promotion, being on the committee of your favorite sports club or you might have a brilliant idea but are unable to get it across. Don’t let your fear of public speaking hold you back. Become a confident speaker. Learn by doing in a fun and supportive environment. Visit Roscrea Toastmasters Club.

Open nights for guests and new members on Thursday January 16th and 30th January 2014. Meetings take place in Racket Hall Roscrea at 8pm sharp. New Year, new challenges. Coming in the door is the hardest part. All are welcome. Contact Noel on 087 9839484.
