MORE than 40 young business people in the Tamworth region honed their public speaking and presentation skills in a Toastmasters workshop for the Tamworth Junior Chamber last week.
Toastmasters members Bob Kirchner, Heather Hunter, John Taylor and Rob Philp spoke about the importance of public speaking skills and confidence in the workplace.
Tamworth Business Chamber executive officer Marjolyn Thomas said the event taught members to get to the point quickly when speaking to others.
“Public speaking is of great importance to anyone in business, be it someone who’s self-employed or working for someone else,” Mrs Thomas said.
“You have so many more options in life if you’re not afraid to stand up and speak to others.”
