The Art and Soul of Public Speaking

The Art and Soul of Public Speaking

Locals Tracey Smith and Cassie Farias say the world needs to hear more women’s wisdom and are excited about bringing an international program called WomanSpeak to Gladstone.

WomanSpeak is designed to support women in practising the ‘art and soul of public speaking’ for use in whatever way they wish – from a small workplace or community meetings through to large audiences.

Founded in the United States, Tracey and Cassie say the movement is spreading around the globe – to Canada, Africa, Europe, New Zealand and Australia. In our state there are active in Brisbane, Atherton and Proserpine.

The program is about clarifying and owning the value of each person’s ideas and practising how to share in an impactful and authentic way.

The program creates safe ‘circles’ of women who connect, support and celebrate each other in overcoming the natural fear many people experience with public speaking.

It is open to all women, from those with no public speaking experience through to women who feel confident but want to be continually developing their skills and ideas, with a range of innovative personal development resources.

A WomanSpeak Introductory event will be held at the WIN Gladstone Inclusion Centre, 21 Off Street, Gladstone on Thursday 26th of July at 7pm. Tickets are $10, available online at:
