Parramatta Toastmasters Club runs four 6 week Speechcraft programs each year. These are confidence building introductions to public speaking. The club has a long tradition with Speechcraft which is used
- Firstly as a way to introduce people to Toastmasters
- Then, by having them help run courses, as a way of having newer members learn our culture of "Helping people, help themselves develop the skills to help other people."
In this way we have established a long term culture of developing leaders from those who join us, leaders who have gone on to serve Toastmasters and the community. Read all about Speechcraft
