What is your speaking tic?

We all have little things we do during conversations that we may not realize we do. For some, this is pulling on clothing, relying on crutch words, scratching our nose, or playing with our hands. For others, it is looking into the air, staring at only one person, moving their hands while they speak, or using a word such as “awesome” or “neat” too often. Toastmasters has the cure for your tic!

Through helpful evaluations and the Competent Communicator program, which teaches the 10 basics of good communication, Colonel Ledyard Toastmasters can help you overcome any nervousness you may have during everyday and business conversation. Whether speaking to one person or an audience of 1000, we help you master the art of speaking and listening with intent.

Come join us Thursday, July 19, 2012 from 7 – 8:30 to hear our speakers, learn how our evaluation process works, and see our club in action. We have an Ice Breaker speech (the first speech in the Competent Communicator program) from a great speaker who plans to become a motivational speaker for cancer patients some day and a Vocal Variety speech (the 6th speech in the program) from an up-and-coming speaker who is learning to apply the foundational elements of communication to her speeches.
