Toastmasters speeches are designed to be taken from the Competent Communication (CC) or Advanced Communication (AC) manuals.

The Competent Communication (CC) manual contains the building blocks of public speaking. The 10 projects are as follows:

  • Ice Breaker (first speech, introduction of new member)
  • Organise your Speech
  • Get to the Point
  • How to Say It
  • Your Body Speaks
  • Vocal Variety
  • Research your Topic
  • Get Comfortable with Visual Aids
  • Persuade with Power
  • Inspire your Audience

Advanced Communication (AC) manuals (each with five projects) are more specialised than the Competent Communication manual. They are:

  • The Entertaining Speaker
  • Speaking to Inform
  • Public Relations
  • Facilitating Discussion
  • Specialty Speeches
  • Speeches by Management
  • The Professional Speaker
  • Technical Presentations
  • Persuasive Speaking
  • Communicating on Video
  • Storytelling
  • Interpretive Reading
  • Interpersonal Communication
  • Special Occasion Speeches
  • Humorously Speaking

Each speech has objectives and a purpose. Speech projects build skills and confidence.

Please refer to the Communication Track of the Education Program.
