Speechcraft to help professionals develop their speaking skills
The Top of Virginia Regional Chamber will be hosting Speechcraft, a success communication series, for four weeks in March. Speechcraft is a program designed to develop your public speaking ability. Participants will gain confidence in all aspects of communication, including written and impromptu speeches, audio-visual aids, body language, active listening and critical evaluation. Speechcraft meetings will be held every Thursday in March from 5:30 until 7:30 p.m. at the La Quinta Inn & Suites. Register online now.
The Speechcraft program exposes each participant to a wide range of communication and learning experiences. Each participant receives a professionally published Toastmaster International Speechcraft Manual plus a range of learning materials. Participants prepare and present speeches in a relaxed atmosphere. Speeches are designed with the novice in mind – you do not need any experience. During each meeting, short impromptu speaking sessions are conducted to help you learn to think on your feet. After each presentation, you receive a constructive speech evaluation, initially from the course trainers and then from your peers. This process recognizes the speaker’s strengths and provides valuable guidance on how future presentations may be improved.
At the end of the course, you will receive a signed Certificate of Completion.
