What we're about

Does your stomach turn over when someone asks you to 'say a few words?'

Does your tongue get in a complete twist when you start to speak in front of a group of people?

If so, then Newport Speakers Club is the place for you! We can help you lose your fear of public speaking, and acquire the skills and confidence to speak effectively in any given situation.

We welcome total novices and those wanting to improve the way they communicate, and especially their listening and public speaking skills.

Many join us to improve their presentations at work, or because they have become president or chairman of an organisation and they have to chair meetings, introduce guest speakers, deliver votes of thanks etc. Others join because they have been asked to give a speech at a wedding or social function, or because they wish to improve their interview skills when applying for a job.

Whatever your reason for joining, you will learn in a friendly and happy atmosphere. It really is amazing how quickly even the most nervous and shy people can overcome their nerves and eliminate shyness in just a few months. They soon learn how to present themselves, start interesting conversations and become better hosts and guests. Those who play an active role in the club report that their overall life skills have improved and they feel happier in themselves.

We concentrate on the use of the voice and those who have a stammer have found this most helpful in improving their daily speaking.

We are affiliated to the Association of Speakers Clubs (ASC), an organisation with 100 clubs up and down the country that helps people develop and improve their communication skills. To learn more see website at http://speakersclubs.uk/ (http://www.the-asc.org.uk/)
