At Banyandah Toastmasters we showcase speakers from beginners to advanced, so you don’t need to worry about whether you can join us! At the moment we have members who have been with us one month to 10 years, aged in their twenties right through. We come from Australian to Asian backgrounds and who have English as their first or second language. We are a small friendly club where everyone get the opportunity for plenty of practice, but also to develop at their own pace. We learn to gradually overcome our fears of public speaking, developing through to a love of public speaking. We grow from scared to confident. We move from lacking in fluency, saying lots of ums and ahs to few or at times none. This is only achieved by practising, presenting and attending meetings. You’ll like our feedback- it’s positive and supportive. We follow the CRC methodology for evaluations- Commend, Recommend, Commend. That’s how we go from fear of public speaking to no more fear! Why not come and join us as a guest and watch speakers of all types learning to master that greatest of skills, that you too can master!
Tonight’s meeting saw member Rachel Leong speaking confidently and inspiring us with a her speech titled “The Obstacle is the way”. Drawing on Marcus Aurelius and stoicism she inspired us with themes of developing calm, embracing obstacles and understanding the importance of perception, action and will. Rachel epitomised the confident public speaker and demonstrated her great ability to memorise complex and detailed material. You were an inspiration to us tonight Rachel!
Last Banyandah Meeting saw new member Jai deliver her Icebreaker Speech- the first from the Competent Communicator Manual. Jai had been a member previously in Korea, so no doubt this assisted with her outstanding delivery. Come, watch and learn from other members new and old, in their quest to develop wonderful public speaking skills!
