Testimonial: "I want to thank Rostrum club 31 for all their encouragement and support in the brief time I participated. I learned so much and gained so much confidence. Before rostrum, public speaking terrified me, but I have grown so much in such a short amount of time that I was able, this past week, to give a lecture series and loved every minute of it. I couldn't have done that without Rostrum. Alyssa Crawford"

Learn to Speak with Confidence

Speaking with confidence can be such an asset in life so why not develop your skills and practice in the friendly atmosphere of the Rostrum Public Speaking Club of Cairns. Public speaking does not have to be daunting, there are fun ways to develop mental dexterity as well as the delivery of important topics by joining this friendly group.

Public Speaker

Testimonial: "I attended a Rostrum Public Speaking Course after hearing a segment on ABC local radio. My goal and motivation was to improve my public speaking skills to help me in my job. I experienced an excellent day of training and after attending a few meetings, I decided to become a Rostrum member to further improve my public speaking. I feel that I am succeeding in this and I have also met a welcoming and diverse group of people who I could now count as friends. Based on my experience I would encourage anyone to get involved with Rostrum!

Testimonial: "I came to Rostrum a year ago, when I was 64, retired, and with no background in Public Speaking. I have found Rostrum very stimulating, it's like a 'best kept' secret, that not many people seem to know about. The support and the training has been fantastic, and ALL the people are so supportive and friendly. I have noticed all the new members, myself included, have grown enormously in confidence, since those first very nervous days of our initial speeches. I love the immediate feedback we get from the critic-mentor, after each speech we give. I haven't found anything hard about Rostrum, and I really love the speech writing and preparation. In fact, I can't wait for the next meeting to come around next Tuesday.
John Hannan - Club 31, Cairns City."
