How do I actually learn public speaking?


The way to gain confidence and learn the skills of speaking to groups of people is through practice with expert feedback. In a Rostrum Speaking Club this is done in a supportive and fun environment in a group of like minded people. Members develop their skill and gain confidence by accepting the challenge to take part in the various exercises. At the end of each meeting each person who spoke receives positive and constructive feedback from a person who is trained in the skills of analysis and evaluation. It is from this feedback that you will really hone your skills.

What happens at a Rostrum meeting?


Each meeting is chaired by a different, experienced club member. A range of speaking exercises are rostered with a notice period of around two weeks. Rostrum clubs vary in the program they offer but they all follow a general pattern.


There are usually some prepared speeches of varying durations on a set topic as well as other speaking exercises such as asking a pertinent question, reading aloud, situational speeches, moving a motion in a meeting, responding to questions, and many other exercises. Some clubs have the same exercises at each meeting and other clubs change the program weekly.

What does Rostrum cost?


Each club is different. The standard Rostrum Clubs of WA Membership is $150 for Metro members or $110 Country members. Clubs may elect to collect additional meeting fees during registration. An initial joining fee of $100 is applied to all new memberships.
