Who should visit Wimbledon Speakers Club?
Anyone who wants to improve upon their public speaking or communication skills, whether a total beginner or more advanced. No matter whether you're preparing to give a speech at a wedding, a work presentation or just want to improve your overall speaking confidence, Wimbledon Speakers Club is for you!
What to expect at your first meeting.
A typical Programme covers; Improvised Speaking; Prepared Speeches & Evaluation of Speeches. Occasionally there may be other word games, debates or lighter-hearted entertainment included.
When do we meet?
Our meetings are held on the 1st & 3rd Wednesday each month at Wimbledon Library (35 Wimbledon Hill Road, SW19 7NB – entrance via the wooden door down the right-hand side of the building). Meetings run from 7.15pm-9.30pm. We welcome visitors who just want to drop in and see how they can best benefit.
Wimbledon Speakers is not affiliated with any political or religious organisation. Our membership reflects a complete range of age gender and ability. Wimbledon Speakers is a member of The Association of Speakers Clubs.
Hope you're keeping well and in good spirits and health. With another lockdown, we're sadly not going to meet in Wimbledon Library anytime soon. When we last met a few weeks ago, we agreed to keep things going, but not at the frequency we've been used to when we saw each other face-to-face. Although many of us are suffering from Zoom fatigue, it's important to keep the Club going, see all your lovely faces and hear all your lovely voices in some capacity!
So, between now and the New Year, we have two meetings:
>> Wednesday 18th November, from 7.30pm
>> Wednesday 16th December, from 7.30pm
Link and passcode is here:
These meetings are designed for members (old and new) and guests to meet, have a laugh, do some 'topic' speeches (if you wish) and discuss Club matters. Please keep the date and link in your calendars/diaries. and we'll look forward to seeing you on these dates.
Feel free to invite your friends and loved ones too!
