Polish Your Speaking Skills: Creatively Speaking Toastmasters

Come to a meeting of the Creatively Speaking Toastmasters Halifax club at WFNS in Halifax. This club welcomes writers of all sorts, as well as creative people from the community. We’re all working to improve our presentation and public speaking skills: delivering a beautiful reading of a piece of written work, making a successful pitch, or doing a presentation. We’re learning to chair meetings, provide feedback and evaluation, and respond to unexpected questions. Like you, we want to sound good when we speak, as well as when we write.

Location: 
We’re in downtown Halifax near the waterfront: 1113 Marginal Rd. Enter through the WFNS door, next door to Tomavinos Pizzeria and across from the NSCAD Port Campus.
