What we're about

Did you know the fear of speaking in public is so common, there is a medical term for it? It's called 'glossophobia'.

Many of our members started their membership feeling quite glossophobic, but with our support and assistance have grown into competent and confident speakers. If you want to beat your fear, we'd love to help you.

But fear is not all we deal with. Sometimes it's just a matter of finding out the skills required or getting great feedback. Sometimes people join just because we are so friendly. Sometimes it's because English is not their native tongue, and they want to get better at speaking in English.

Whatever your reason, we'd love you to pop along as a guest and see for yourself how fabulous and welcoming we are - and that won't cost you a cent [limit three free meetings].

So, who are we?

POWERtalk Brisbane Central is part of an Australian Not-For-Profit organisation, and international Network of speaking clubs that have for over 80 years been assisting people grow in speaking and leadership skills.

Rain, hail or shine, we meet as a club on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays February to November, and the 1st Tuesday in December at the Grange Library Community Meeting room. Our meetings are programmed to a theme and allow our members the opportunity to practice their speaking and be evaluated in a constructive, nurturing environment.

As a guest, you will not be programmed to participate in the night's speaking. However, you are welcome to participate in the 'topics' section of the evening which is where you get to stand and answer a question from the Topic Leader for up to one minute. Participation is voluntary - just let us know if you want to participate or not. We won't force you to speak if you don't wish to do so.

Full membership of the club and organisation costs $97 per year. Once you join, we will guide you through a program of growth in confidence and ability.

Guests are free of charge [limit 3 free meetings]. Come along and see what we do for yourself - we are very friendly and welcoming. RSVP is not necessary to attend, although we do like to know if we are having extras attending as we have a cuppa part way through the evening and like to know how many people we are catering for.

We look forward to meeting you soon!
