What we're about

Everyone is experienced, some are experts in some areas and some in others, still. Wisdom overflows us all, but in the best of times we sometimes forget to live by it, and in the worse it always feels impossible to.

I created this group to share my experience, and to gather people with a similar interest in their thoughts and emotions in order to learn from each other, share our tools, our victories, our losses, and to most importantly share love. Living consciously now is the great secret to happiness, so let us use this moment to feel life itself and walk this journey together!

There will be a mixture events from civil and normal to wild and crazy. Whatever the wheel of life decides, join us on this adventure.

Public Speaking Practice Saturdays

The Olivier Circle, Floor 3 at the National Theatre

Hi all! (This meetup is private, which means it has nothing to do with the National Theatre. If lost, please do not ask security to locate you to this event! Please look at description. Also, please only RSVP 'Yes' if you are going to attend. If you can't attend, RSVP 'No' and we'll see you another time!) This event is for beginners. Come and get the chance to speak in a supportive and friendly environment. What makes this public speaking session different from others you ask? There is a strong emphasis on self expression, creativity, trial and error, and most importantly, speaking practice! Here's how it works: You will put your name in a hat/bowl and when your name is chosen, you will be asked to perform. You will speak for 2 minutes on a random topic given by the audience. This is called an impromptu speech. We will do 2-3 rounds of speaking followed by some feedback at the end from our audience. The purpose of impromptu speaking is so participants can learn to think and speak on their feet! And so therefore based on our experience I may change the structure of the event on occasion to help you learn different aspects of impromptu speaking. TIP: Give your impromptu speech the following 3 sections: 1. Introduction ("Tonight, I'm going to talk about....") 2. Body ("Here is my personal experience....") 3. Conclusion ("So, my key message is ....") Each speech is to be 2 minutes long. You're not obligated to speak, although I will encourage you. Where to find us: 3rd Floor of the National theatre (Oliver section) Call me Tom on[masked] if lost. My phone will be turned off at 5:00pm, so get in touch before! Cost: £5 (£2 for students) -Payment methods: Cash in hand, PayPal ([masked]), Eventbrite ticket ( https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/public-speaking-practice-saturday-tickets-50331612207 ), or meetup. Spaces limited strictly to 15. Event is wheelchair accessible. See you all soon!

Public Speaking Practice Sundays - Prepared Speeches

Royal Festival Hall, Blue Bar – Level 4

Hello Public Speakers, This event is for beginners. Come and get the chance to speak in a supportive and friendly environment. What makes this public speaking session different from others you ask? There is a strong emphasis on self expression, creativity, trial and error, and most importantly, speaking practice! Who is it for: - Anyone who wants to improve their confidence speaking in public - Anyone who wants to improve their employment opportunities - Anyone who wants to improve their communication skills in relationships and elsewhere - Anyone who wants to practice a speech, for a wedding, for a meeting, for hosting your own events, etc.. - Anyone who has just finished a Public Speaking course and needs to practice their skill. (Frankly, if you don't use it you lose it!) Here's how it works: 1. We will do a small mediation to relax our nerves. 2. We select a topic of our choice or we can ask the audience for a topic for an extra challenge. 3. We will plan our speeches with a template I will give you. 4. We take turns speaking for 5 minutes. 5. We'll give each other some feedback. You may prepare in advance if you wish, and watch and study the art of Public Speaking but its only practice which makes it perfect. As this is in a public space the event we may move location or run slightly overboard - usually and hopefully this does not happen. But you will be updated promptly in such an event and you can give me a call too. TIP: Give your speech the following 3 sections: 1. Introduction ("Today, I'm going to talk about....") 2. Body ("Here is my personal experience....") 3. Conclusion ("So, my key message is ....") Each speech is to be 4-5 minutes long. You're not obligated to speak, although I will encourage you.
