Frequently Asked Questions
There is no better way to improve your interpersonal skills, become a better communicator, learn how to run meetings effectively, enhance your organisational and committee skills, improve your business presentations and gain confidence, than by joining your local Rostrum WA public speaking club.
The membership of Rostrum clubs consist of both men and women from a wide range of backgrounds, vocation and experience.
Because of the operation of the Working With Children (Criminal Record Checking) Act 2004, as Rostrum clubs fall within the definition of the broad range of types of organisations set out in Section 6 of the act, persons under 18 years of age may only attend a Rostrum meeting if accompanied by a parent or guardian.
The way to gain confidence and learn the skills of speaking to groups of people is through practice with expert feedback. In a Rostrum WA public speaking club, this is done in a supportive and fun environment with a group of like minded people.
Members develop their skills and gain confidence by accepting the challenge to take part in the various public speaking exercises. At the end of each meeting each person who spoke receives positive and constructive feedback from a trained public speaking tutor who is trained in the skills of analysis and evaluation. It is from this feedback that you will really hone your skills.
