Speechcraft Coming to Iron Mountain
Our local Toastmaster’s of the Northwood’s group met and decided to participate in an exciting workshop. This has been offered to our Chapter by the District Office. Because of their support we are able to offer this short series for a very reasonable price. Six sessions for $20, but there is limited availability. That includes your Speechcraft book, which is all you need to get started.
The workshop is called “Speechcraft” – the skills gained through Speechcraft will benefit the participants at home and at work. Every conversation at home with the family will be more fun and productive. On the job, the participant will be able to communicate better with coworkers, associates, customers as well as their boss. The skills learned at these sessions are designed for both members and non-members.
We will be holding our regular Toastmaster meeting on the first and third Monday of each month. Each participant will receive the materials that you need to become a more polished and confident speaker plus receive a mentor who will help them. Our meetings are held at the Iron Mountain VA conference room 2376, second floor above the Urgent Care entrance.
Speechcraft sessions will start on Monday, April 3 at 5:30PM. We encourage you to sign up for this series – space is limited. This is a great way to experience Toastmasters. We have a high rate of people that continue as members after this.
If you have questions regarding Speechcraft or want to sign up, please contact Trisha Peterson 906-774-5731
