What we're about

“There are always three speeches, for every one you actually gave. The one you practiced, the one you gave, and the one you wished you gave.” – Dale Carnegie

Our members are a friendly group of people of all ages and varying backgrounds. We get together to practice public speaking and build leadership skills such as presenting speeches, giving feedback and speaking off the cuff - all in a friendly and supportive environment. Our members include people who need to give presentations at work, prepare for wedding speeches, or are simply looking to develop self-confidence and improve their communication skills to achieve personal and professional growth.

All skill levels are welcome, from complete beginners to experienced speakers. We use the self-paced educational programme from Toastmasters International (https://www.toastmasters.org/), so when you join us you become part of a world-wide network of over 16,800 clubs in 143 countries.

We meet every 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month from 7.15pm for a 7.30pm start, and normally finish at 9.30pm. Our meetings take place online in light of the coronavirus. Visit our website at www.bedfordspeakers.co.uk for more details.
