Kapi-Mana News - - EDUCATION -

Do you dread hav­ing to speak in pub­lic? Do words fail you at that cru­cial mo­ment?

A Toast­mas­ters group is here to help you with that.

Toast­mas­ters is an in­ter­na­tional or­gan­i­sa­tion that aims to help peo­ple de­velop their speak­ing, lis­ten­ing and lead­er­ship skills.

The lo­cal branch, Kapi-Mana@Tawa, is a re­laxed, friendly bunch of peo­ple of all ages and from a range of cul­tures, says mem­ber Robin Geb­bie. They are hold­ing in­tro­duc­tory Taste of Toast­mas­ters evenings on Septem­ber 24 and Oc­to­ber 8 at 7.30pm in the Tawa Community Cen­tre, Cam­bridge Street, Tawa.

These open meet­ings will in­clude reg­u­lar im­promptu speech ses­sions (known as ta­ble top­ics) and other lively dis­cus­sions.

Whether English is your sec­ond lan­guage or you sim­ply want to pol­ish the way you present your case at work, Mr Geb­bie says par­tic­i­pants will find the meet­ings a mix­ture of chal­lenge, fun and en­cour­age­ment.

Peo­ple are also wel­come to join the reg­u­lar meet­ings on the sec­ond and fourth Mon­days of each month.
