What is Speechcraft?

Speechcraft is a program which teaches participants the basics of public speaking. It helps people overcome their fear of public speaking by demonstrating and training proven techniques in communication and presentation skills. These techniques deal with topics such as controlling fear, structuring a presentation, speaking "off the cuff", controlling and using your voice, and delivering a toast or other special occasion speeches.

Speechcraft at National Toastmasters is conducted in a professional yet friendly and supportive environment, and is delivered by National Toastmasters members most experienced and skilled in public speaking. It is desgined to be a hands-on, practical program in which participants learn by doing.

How does it work?

Each Speechcraft program runs one night a week for 8 weeks, with a maximum of 12 participants. Each participant receives a Toastmasters Speechcraft Handbook which contains a number of speech projects to work through during the program.

During the early stages of the program, National Toastmasters' trainers deliver educational sessions designed to help participants improve their confidence speaking in front of others, communication skills, presentation skills and speech preparation skills. Participants deliver speeches nearly every week, receiving feedback, evaluation, guidance and mentoring to improve their skills.

Apart from educational sessions, the provided Speechcraft handbook gives valuable reference material for participants during and after completing the program. At the end of the program, participants graduate and receive a Toastmasters International Speechcraft Course Completion Certificate.
