FEAR OF SPEAKING

Most people come to Toastmasters to overcome their fear of public speaking. So at Toastmasters meetings, what you’ll see – among other things – are demonstrations of courage. Standing in front of a group of attentive listeners makes most people feel vulnerable. It also adds a burden of responsibility, expectation and opportunity. This can be overwhelming and downright scary.


In Toastmasters, members acquire the habit of courage through encouragement and support. As with sky diving or rock climbing, speaking before an audience becomes easier the more often you  do it.  Visit a Toastmaster Club and see what what we mean when we say "Laugh, Learn, Lead".
