About Our Club
Would you like to improve your confidence and self esteem? Do you want to have something to say and be able to say it with passion?
Rostrum can offer much in self development at very little cost. Club 11 has a mix of members with a wealth of experience and new, younger members who bring a fresh approach. This creates a well balanced membership whose main aim is to learn from each other and enjoy doing it. Speaking programmes are entertaining and thought provoking. The Club always has the benefit of excellent Critics to guide and mentor the membership throughout the Rostrum year.
We Welcome Visitors
Just drop in to experience one of our speaking programs. Alternatively, contact Martyn Pearce on (08) 8336 5189 or submit an e-mail inquiry to:
Our Membership Fees
The membership fee is currently $50 for each six months.
Meals are Available at the Venue
A meal is available during the meeting, but not obligatory. Prices range from $7 to $20.
The first part of the meeting is the speaking section of Program. Here members have the opportunity to practise their communication skills with speeches, impromptu speeches and readings. Members are allocated speech topics by the Club Program Director or can choose to present on subjects of their own choice, which could be a practice run for a function that they are planning.
The second part of the meeting is the business section. This is generally shorter and covers the minutes from the previous meeting, reports from Office Bearers and minor speaking exercises.
In conclusion, the Club Critic evaluates the meeting and members' contributions. This is an extremely important part of the meeting. The Rostrum Critics are trained to provide encouragement and constructive criticism. They are helpful in offering advice and suggestions as to how to improve skills for future exercises as well as recognition of strengths.
