Swindon Speakers Club
Swindon Speakers are a local and friendly group who meet on the first and third Thursday of every month at The beautiful Blunsdon House Hotel, in Blunsdon. We start at 7.30pm and finish at 10.00pm.
If you have ever wanted to acquire a new skill or need to gain confidence in speaking to a group, with support and guidance, then Swindon Speakers Club is the place you need to be.
We welcome new members from total novices through to those wanting to practice and brush up their public speaking skills, all in a friendly and fun atmosphere.
Free Training program.
We are not like any other Speakers club, we are more forward thinking. We offer the very best advice, support and guidance on how to write and then present your speech. We now also offer recordings of your presentations for self assessment, you will be able to showcase your work on our video page and we are the Swindon Speakers Bureau, supporting and promoting our members to outside groups and businesses.
We provide a free training program and once you become a member, you are encouraged to complete our structured and accredited assessments. Our training will help anyone with:
Business meetings or Presentations
Any social event
Any other speaking event
Swindon Speakers Club was established in 1982 and currently has around 25 full members of all ages, backgrounds and abilities. Come along and try out our group. After attending two free meetings, you will be asked if you would like to join us, by then you will have made up your mind.
We are part of the Nationally recognised Association of Speakers Clubs, an organisation with over 100 clubs up and down the country, all these clubs have one common goal, to help people develop and improve their speaking skills.
