For more detailed information about both the
Communication Programme and the Leadership Programme
please see the sub menus on the left.
Competent Communicator Manual
The Competent Communicator manual has 10 speech themes ranging from the 'Icebreaker' which is a short speech just introducing yourself to the club, and goes all the way to 'Inspiring your Audience' which is a 10 minute speech aimed at inspiring your audience. Each speech comes with it's own speech objectives.
Competent Leadership Manual
The Competent Leadership manual contains all the roles which make up a typical Toastmasters meeting. Each time you take on one of these roles, you fill in the manual. This allows you to work towards achieving the 'Competent Leadership Award,' which is great for your CV! And each time you take on a role, you are further developing your speaking skills.
