Toastmasters International is a not-for-profit training organisation, focused on communication and leadership development. Through member clubs they help people gain the confidence and learn the skills to speak in front of an audience.

I have been a member of this organisation for many years and was proud when I was asked to present at there annual convention this year in Hobart, TAS.

The theme, Speak of the Devil, was a play on DREAM – EMPOWER – VOCALISE – INSPIRE and LEAD.

To me it was obvious to stare the devil in the eye and to run a workshop on the scariest of all topics – stage fright.

In combination with relaxation routines, empowering techniques and roleplays we turned this fear around into a joy filled excersise that everyone can look frward to.
