Most of us have experienced the uncomfortable feeling of being asked to speak in public – for work presentations, wedding speeches and many other situations. A Speechcraft course will help you learn techniques and build confidence so that you can make the most of these opportunities. These courses are run independently by clubs.
The fundamental belief behind Speechcraft is that people learn best by doing. During this course, participants will be required to deliver a series of speeches and be involved with other speaking activities. This may sound daunting, but there will be people there to provide encouragement and help you overcome that fear! We will offer tips and techniques to help you control nervousness and develop your public speaking skills. We will also have lots of fun along the way!
The exact programme will vary for each course. However, sessions are usually divided into four parts – prepared speeches, educational speeches, impromptu speeches and evaluations. Here is a summary of each one:
