What we're about

Do you Suffer From Fear public speaking Including interviews, presentations, meetings, best man speeches!? Do you want to improve your communication and leadership skills?

Don't have thousands to spend on corporate courses?

You have come to the right place!

Hamwic Speakers and Solent Speakers are part of Toastmasters International, a global not for profit organisation run by volunteers with over 350 thousand members who share the same passion for public speaking. Today many people are more comfortable communicating by email or telephone, rather than face-to-face. Speaking to large or small groups, or even one to one, can be a nerve-racking or stressful experience. At our clubs, you can learn how to overcome these challenges. In a friendly, safe and supportive environment, you can transform your public speaking into an enjoyable and successful experience.

Toastmasters has helped to nurture some of the best public speakers in the world but our real delight comes from helping new members embark on a brave journey to improving their public speaking. We all share the same nerves and the same desire to continuously improve ourselves and those around us. You could be a part of that and if you are new to Toastmasters come along to our meetings for FREE!

Hamwic Speakers & Solent Speakers are affiliated to Toastmasters International as part of District 91 (UK South).

Online Public Speaking Confidence & Leadership Skills with Shilling Speakers

Forget another evening of Netflix. Join us for 2 hours of stimulating prepared and impromptu speeches. Learn new skills and have fun. Many people are using this enforced lock-down to improve their skills set whether for work or social reasons. We can help you become a better public speaker, build your confidence and leadership skills. That is what members of Toastmasters International have been doing for nearly 100 years. We have short, prepared speeches and even shorter impromptu speeches plus, most importantly, immediate, constructive feedback so that we learn not just what was good about the speech but how to make it even better. We meet on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month at 19:15pm until 21:30. Normally, that would be at the convivial Wheelwrights Arms in Havant but for now we are meeting online. This means wherever you are in the world, you can join us. In fact, we have members overseas and in London. Guests can join for FREE for up to three meetings. Register to receive the Zoom link: https://bit.ly/3bEzkz9 The theme of the meeting changes every time and we always have an interesting, sociable evening. We do hope you'll join us. PS If you've never used Zoom before, don't worry, it's easy and you'll pick up a new skill. Antonia Harrison
