Bloomsbury Speakers is affiliated to Toastmasters International (, a non-profit organisation with over 15,400 clubs worldwide.

Why join a public speaking club?

There are lots of good reasons to join a club like Bloomsbury Speakers, but here are a few of the most popular:

to overcome a fear of public speaking or just build confidence when presenting to an audience

to prepare for a specific event such as a wedding speech or an important presentation

to develop effective communication and leadership skills that are valuable in many areas of life

It’s also a great way to meet new and interesting people – we’re a pretty sociable bunch!
