And so can you. Why not start a speaker study group to help yourself improve, with support? You can certainly join a local Toastmasters group, but there's also no reason you can't find some like-minded speakers and presenters at your church, workplace or community group. Your group might be just you and one other trusted colleague or friend, or several people. You and your group can help each other by:
- Serving as a friendly practice audience that can give you feedback in a safe way;
- Watching videos with you of your practice sessions;
- Offering ideas for phrases, gestures, movement and more;
- Sharing good resources and reads on public speaking.
