What we're about

Why not join us at Holborn Speakers, the friendliest public speaking club in London. We offer:

• A supportive environment to build your confidence in public speaking, and to practise speaking in front of an audience

• A structured programme to follow to help you build on your presenting and leadership skills, which you can follow at your own pace

• The opportunity to receive feedback on your speeches in a friendly environment: what you have done well and guidance on the areas you can improve upon

• An experienced mentor to support you on your public speaking journey.

We meet on the first three Tuesdays of each month from 6:30pm, at The Rugby Tavern, Great James St, London WC1N 3ES. Each meeting is a mixture of prepared speeches by our members, speaking roles and impromptu speaking challenges by members and guests. Holborn Speakers meetings are free to attend and you only have to speak if you want to. After the meeting you will be invited to join us for a drink and free Thai snacks.

Our mission is to provide a friendly and supportive environment where we can develop our public speaking and presentation skills to help us grow our careers or personal goals.
