This is our last meeting before Christmas and will include a workshop on how to use Games and Activities as part of a Speaking programme.

We'll also hold our club topics (impromptu speaking) competition with a light-hearted theme.

Felixstowe Speakers is a fantastic place for beginners to overcome their fears and take their first step on the road to speaking confidently in public. It's also an opportunity for more experienced speakers to improve their skills.

We also welcome people who have a specific goal in mind - acceptance speeches, wedding speeches, work based presentations, etc.

The focus is on learning by doing and receiving feedback from more experienced members in a supportive environment. Over the years we have developed some very effective and proficient public speakers and guests are very welcome to come along to see how we work.
