Expanding your comfort zone is a key part of the Toastmasters experience.
When we first join Spa Speakers, presenting to our members can be pretty intimidating. What’s great however is that by regularly giving speeches and doing meeting roles we eventually get comfortable presenting to the familiar faces at the club and might even start to enjoying it. Woohoo, our comfort zone has expanded. 🙂
Expanding your speaking horizons beyond Spa Speakers
Many of us wish to transfer our speaking skills to other settings, e.g. work, which can be an intimidating prospect. Luckily, as a member of Toastmasters International, you can take an intermediate step to help make the leap.
At Toastmasters you have the option to speak at other Toastmasters clubs where you’ll find friendly, supportive but unfamiliar audiences; they are great places to further build speaking confidence before going further afield. To speak at another club, is straightforward but it does take a bit of arranging. If you want to try it, get in touch with the committee and we’ll help facilitate the process.
