TOASTMASTERS: Cairns Speakers

Good writing skills, perseverance, eagerness to learn and discipline are the writer’s essential tools. But at some point, the writer has to speak. In public, in front of a group of people, a crowd. This skill is very different from the writer’s solitary job and may be daunting for many.

If you wish to brush up on your public speaking skills, why not join our local Toastmasters group. To learn more, visit Cains Speakers. We say ‘Cheers!’.
