What we’re about

Welcome to SPUDS: Society of Passionate, Unique, and Dynamic Speakers!

Are you eager to enhance your public speaking skills in a welcoming and encouraging environment?

If your answer is yes, you've found your tribe!

What We Offer:

πŸ—£οΈ Regular Practice: We gather every other Saturday at 4 pm in Belfast to provide you with a platform for regular public speaking practice. Whether you prefer speaking on random topics or topics of your choice, you'll have the opportunity to speak at each meeting.

🀝 Supportive Community: At SPUDS, we understand the power of communication. We believe that communication is 55% body language, 38% tone of voice, and only 7% words. Practicing your public speaking skills is the key to delivering fantastic speeches.

πŸ™Œ Affordable Learning: Our events are free, but we kindly ask for a voluntary contribution of Β£5 per event to cover venue expenses and Meetup subscription fees. SPUDS is a non-profit organisation.

🌟 Inclusivity: All experience levels are welcome. Whether you're new to public speaking or a seasoned pro, you'll find a supportive and diverse community here.

🌐 "SPUDS was so much fun. I joined when I moved to Belfast as a young professional, just starting a new job. I was terrified of speaking in meetings, but speaking in front of the SPUDS community was so warm and relaxed that it gave me a chance to push myself a lot. I am so grateful to the whole group for welcoming me!" - Marie Allen
