Speaking in Public

During the last mayor election cycle I had a chance to listen to both candidates in person. I am not a seasoned critic but I can tell you both speak on a novice level, why are we missing great speakers in Tupelo? Could it be the public education system or maybe just the lack of pride in what comes out of our mouths. Why not have citizens that capture an audience like Marcus TulliusĀ Cicero has done.


Could it be a lack of preparation or practice? I have come across an excellent way to improve public speaking skills be it on the job, teaching, church, public meetings, or even at a friendly dinner party and get together s. Anyone can be the hit of the evening with some education on what makes a good speaker and or leader.


Starting January 7 of this new year there can be a new start to gain skills that will let us shine in any endeavor we choice to communicate in. Toastmasters is a non-profit club that welcomes guests and provides support to become better speakers and leaders. Toastmasters will be meeting at ICC in Belden the first and third Tuesday nights at 6 PM in a classroom on the second floor.


Who knows you might make some new friends and find opportunities.
