Waverley Communicators uses the educational programme material provided by Toastmasters International.
The programme is divided into two tracks: communication and leadership.
When you join, you will receive a Membership Pack which includes the Competent Communication manual and the Competent Leadership manual.
Here you can read about the 10 speech projects designed to help members develop the basic skills needed to prepare and present effective speeches.
As you work through the manual your confidence will grow and your nerves will diminish.
Once you complete the Competent Communication manual, you will receive a certificate from Toastmasters International certifying that you are a ‘Competent Communicator’.
And you can also move on to the Advanced Communicator manuals – there are 15 to choose from and each contains 5 projects. Go here to read the full list.
The Competent Leadership manual helps you build valuable leadership skills such as:
- chairing meetings and events
- being part of a team
- organising a team
- being an effective evaluator
- being an effective committee member
- being a mentor
You never stop learning in Toastmasters!
