Sydney Speakers is a supportive and fun environment where you will develop and grow – both professionally and personally. You join a community of learners, and we learn by doing.
As a member of Sydney Speakers, you will follow a self-paced Toastmasters program that will help you to:
- Develop better speaking and presentation skills
- Learn to think quickly and clearly on your feet
- Build strong leadership abilities
- Hone your listening skills
Become a better speaker
Toastmasters will give you the skills and confidence you need to effectively express yourself in any situation. Whether you are a professional, student, stay-at-home parent or retiree, 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’ll be more persuasive and confident when giving presentations, and you’ll improve your one-on-one dealings with others.
Toastmasters is ‘Where Leaders are Made’. In order to lead, you need to communicate, and you need to work as a team. As a member of Sydney Speakers, you’ll do both. And you’ll find out how to vary your approach to suit the needs of different people – whether they be the audience for a speech, colleagues, or members of your family.
