The “Speech” has a key role in the improvement of the communication skills.
In Toastmasters the members receive first two manuals, the “Competent Communicator” (CC) and the “Competent Leader” (CL).
To become a competent communicator the member passes through 10 speeches in the CC manual, each one with a specific objective which altogether build a solid basis. After the CC manual the member chooses in which area she/he wants to focus on, with the aid of the Advanced Manuals.
In every meeting up to 2 speeches are delivered by the members and they are formally evaluated during the Evaluation section.
