Speaking Skills
and conversation skills

Five Fantastic Facts why "improving your speaking skills" is a Great Green Imperative:

and why it would benefit you to join a Speakers Club or a Toastmasters Club where you you can learn invaluable tips and ideas for improving the effectiveness of your talks and conversations and where you can have feedback and practice.

Speakers Clubs which may cost as little as £40 for 14 two hour sessions during spring and autumn are good value compared with professional weekend courses that cost £300. And Speakers clubs offer lots of practice

You may be shy person -
    but is there a sensitive person inside wishing to communicate?

You may think/know you are a good speaker -
    but there will still be some faults that you haven't noticed that could be improved

You may think you are a good speaker ...
    but are you a good listener?

So the five facts:

1. You may have to give talks on Christian or environmental matters, run committees or teach people - Life is short -Isn't it important to do it as effectively as possible? So don't continue giving poor talks because you are too lazy/proud to learn how to give better ones.

The issues we deal with in Christian Ecology Link are vital - so if you have to give a presentation make it the BEST!

2. Improve now and it will be with you for the rest of your life!

3. Simple techniques can soon improve your speaking and listening. But it is vital to have practice in applying them

4.. Join a Speakers Club - apart from having the opportunity to practise amongst friends, the meetings are fun and involve adrenalin, interest and laughter..

5. Providing you don't have to drive huge distances, the meetings have a low carbon footprint, compared to other hobbies such as skydiving .


There is sure to be a huge amount of interest in speaking - why don't you join a Speakers Club and get some practice first - So be ahead of your friends and colleagues

Recommended websites: National Association of Speakers Clubs (It will tell you if there is a local club near you)

Join a Speakers Club. Practise.
