Find your voice at Docklands’ Toastmasters

Find your voice at Docklands’ Toastmasters Image

Do you have trouble giving speeches?

Is English your second language? Perhaps you find it hard to socialise or maybe you need to give a speech or “emcee” a birthday or wedding?

If so, then Toastmasters may be just the thing that you need to help you overcome your nerves and learn to communicate effectively.

Dock 5 resident Corinne Civalleri recently joined Toastmasters, but was already an experienced member, having experienced the group in Canada.

“Like most people who join I had heard of it prior and people had told me to go, but I just pushed it aside and forgot about it,” she said.

Corinne said it wasn’t until she was having problems communicating with people because English is her second language, that she decided to join the group to learn how to be more assertive.

“I decided last October to find a group and found one here in Docklands and it’s a great group and very different from other groups because it’s a wide mixture of people with different ages, backgrounds and professions,” she said.

Docklands Toastmasters is held at The Hub (80 Harbour Esplanade) every second and fourth Monday of each month.
