Carl Horn: How learning to speak with confidence can help you

Carl Horn has brought the curtain down on 38 years of public speaking with some typically thought provoking words.
"Every New Zealand citizen", he says, "should be required to take a Toastmasters course, preferably after they leave high school".
For the uninitiated, Toastmasters is an international organisation made up of thousands of clubs with hundreds of thousands of members who practice the art and craft of making a speech.
For many it helps them tackle one of our most common fears - speaking in public - by providing a supportive, learning environment.You won't find Carl's compulsory Toastmasters edict in any political manifesto, but he is nothing if not persuasive (that's one of the speech categories members practise at Toastmasters).
"There is nothing more valuable than to be able to use words effectively and express yourself," he says.
