Step over the gap, not into it. Watch the space between platform and train.

Toastmasters is good and you will see improvement.Even better is a personal coach - I did a day with Robin Kermode through work. Funny I was talking about him today, he loved my voice. He played John Major in Meryl Streep's Iron Lady (for one scene) and specialises in voice overs/announcer (did ATP tennis finals). Lovely guy, very easy going.It would probably be similar fees to lawyers, prostitutes or therapists I.e. In GBP 00s an hour. Toastmasters is free to attend so do that to.
