Managing Your Fear

A Sense of Community
Our club members are warm, welcoming people from all walks of life who all have a common goal - to improve their speaking and leadership skills. This provides members a strong foundation and develops helpful relationships that provide motivation and growth.
 
Immediate Feedback
Our members wish to see and help other members improve their own skills. The best way to do this is by providing immediate feedback after prepared speeches. Each prepared speaker is assigned an evaluator who will highlight areas where the speaker did well, suggest areas for improvement in the future and provide encouragement.
