Presentations, Public Speaking
Let's be honest, we all get nervous right before an important presentation or speech. But that shouldn't be an obstacle to doing a great job. We at Blue Danube Speakers practice speaking in a safe and supportive atmosphere at our club. Every two weeks our members have the chance to speak in front of their club colleagues. Every speaker gets valuable and constructive feedback on his/her contribution. Our goal is to develop further while having fun!
What you get out of it:
Learn to make presentations confidently and convincingly
Improve your rhetorical skills
Practice speaking in front of a group and learn to stay calm.
Forget your nervous-stomach and sweaty hands -
You will rock your next performance on stage!
in English or German
At Blue Danube Speakers Linz we offer the opportunity to practice speeches in two languages: English and German. Basically, our meetings are held in English. Many of our members use the club evening to improve their English speaking skills (e.g. for work purposes). Nonetheless, there is always the possibility to hold speeches in German too. The choice is yours: Choose the language in which you want to practice.

Feedback & Mentoring
We offer a mentorship program to help you to develop your speaking skills. Choose a mentor of your choice to guide you on your journey to becoming a confident speaker.
There is no better place than Toastmasters to get honest and constructive feedback. Each speech at our meetings is evaluated by one of our club members. You will learn, where you excelled and where you can still improve - in a supportive, constructive and friendly way. Even evaluation speeches are evaluated - everyone benefits!
