If YES, this boardroom is for you. Join us at the Speak to Grow Boardroom run by Annik Petrou & Elliot Kay, Founder & Talent Scout at Speaker Express. We will go through a pitching structure and the 5-step system of The Speakers' Method: 1. Confidence 2. Signature Talk & Delivery 3. Get Booked 4. Pitch & Sales 5. Visibility & Media Impact NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED Your trainer Annik started Speaker Express from scratch after she kept feeling stuck with no confidence and fear of speaking up about her ideas because they might sound 'silly' to others. Annik heard and saw hundreds of different pitches in the last years and has helped and delivered training to hundreds of entrepreneurs, knowing how to make you fall in LOVE with pitching & speaking. Companies she worked with got the highly desired investment, accepted on accelerator programmes, winning pitching competitions or went on to speak on TEDx stages. Her clients include a number of technology start-ups within Silicon Roundabout, high-end corporates and the recently funded business voted 'Best Dragon's Den Pitch Ever'. Elliot has been doing stage performances and public speaking since he was 11. Starting out as a professional dancer, then moving on to entrepreneurship and building three successful businesses, Elliot has a unique knowledge of both what makes great stage presence and how to utilise that to build a profitable business. At Speaker Express, Elliot knows how to stretch speakers to reach their full potential. He spends most of his time as a business mentor, working with start-up businesses to grow them strategically. Speaking is a big part of his marketing strategy, he has accumulated 6,000 hours of stage time speaking globally to audiences across Europe, Africa, US, and the Middle East – and he brings that expertise and experience to the Speaker Express trainings. What others say 'If you have a BUSINESS it's a must for you to be able to speak from stage. You will develop material that you can use for your speaking engagements and experience what it is like to embody being an incredible speaker. As a result of that I progressed with my speaking in a short amount of time.'Marina M., Effortless Living 'The euphoria you feel after speaking is directly proportionate to the fear you felt before.’ Colin Firth, Actor 'Brilliantly executed with passion, love and professionalism. I left feeling empowered, inspired and loved. When I arrived I thought I was a good speaker as I have delivered a lot of small speeches and workshops, by the end of the day I self-actualised I am not. I felt safe in the environment they created, I dropped my inner critic and opened myself up to being more daring, vulnerable and to learn, grow and improve with everyone else who was there.' Tony S., Author, Speaker, Human Behaviour & Cognitive Specialist 'I teach people to use their voice more effectively and have been to other speaker training communities in London that don't match what Annik offers at Speaker Express. My recommendation will always go to Speaker Express as the place to train because of the opportunities, the community and the professional feedback to the speakers.' Emma C., Voice Coach Speaker Express is for anyone who uses public speaking as part of their business growth strategy. We run a monthly Club Night and a 3 or 6-month Speaking Accelerator based on The Speakers' Method. Please note: Tickets are non-refundable but can be transferred to another person or date during 2018.

What we're about

This group is for anyone who is interested in finding out more about a range of topics and subject areas by attending lectures and talks around London.
To start off with the group will be based around the the LSE lectures, which really are a fantastic series of lectures put on by the London School of Economics. I love attending these lectures, especially as the majority of them are free, and I thought it would be really nice to be joined by some other people, and then to retire to a nearby pub or restaurant to discuss the topic, the lecture and just to catch up!
There are tons of LSE lectures, and I am not able to go to all of them, so this really is a group for all its members to co-operatively run- the list of LSE lectures is here;

If anyone sees a lecture that they think sounds interesting, feel free to list it as a meetup and see if anyone wants to sign up as well.
I'm not sure how popular this group will be, but as a courtesy to LSE I am going to limit each official Meetup attendance to 10 people, as the lectures do get pretty full without being descended upon by hordes of marauding Meetupers :) But if the meetup is full and you really want to see it, then feel free to come along, and you will be more than welcome to meet us all in there or after.
The group is not limited to LSE lectures- if anyone sees another talk or lecture that they think looks interesting, feel free to stick it up there.
Thanks for reading and hope to meet you soon :)
