What is Speechcraft?
Speechcraft is a program to develop your public speaking abilities. You don’t receive a grade and you can proceed at your own pace.
Since 2004, I have been promoting my club, Toa Payoh Central Toastmasters Club, through the website and this public speaking blog.
Lately, 3 other Toastmasters Clubs deserve my highest recommendation.
But, why learn public speaking in the first place?
This is what Donald Trump has to say:
Years ago I was probably nervous
about facing an audience, but I got over it ….
Being afraid of speaking in public
is something you can conquer
… whatever the size of the audience, …..
That said, public speaking and presentations
may be a necessary step on your ladder to success.

“Many people believed that the real obstacle to success in public speaking is fear. We are afraid to speak to a group of people in public. So we join a Toastmasters club. After conquering the fear, we make another surprising discovery…”
The real fear may not be the delivery of a speech, but the mastery of the language and the oratory skill required in a speech. How can we learn to speak eloquently?
