Speak With Confidence
Improve your public speaking and communication skills. Build your confidence and grow as a leader. It’s time to get started on the new you!
The Epsom Speakers’ Approach
We have a friendly and encouraging environment to enable you to achieve your public speaking goals and reach your potential. We use tried and tested techniques that work to boost your skills and enable everyone to benefit from our meetings.
Attend A Meeting
Take the first step and be our guest. Why not come to our next meeting, chat with our members and find out what Epsom Speakers can do for you.
Stand Up and Speak
There are opportunities to stand up and speak from your first meeting. At Epsom Speakers there is no pressure to speak, you only participate when you are ready. It’s okay to attend our meetings and just listen – you’ll be surprised what you’ll learn.
Get Positive Feedback
We support and help each another improve our public speaking skills by giving positive feedback. You’ll learn what you did well and you’ll get tips about how to improve.
Epsom Speakers Club have been helping our community improve their public speaking, leadership and social skills for over 50 years. We are a group of ordinary people who come together at Bourne Hall on Monday evenings to help each other develop our communication skills. Our Club is affiliated to Toastmasters International and we run our meetings according to their educational guidelines so that we can all learn and grow.
Delivering short prepared speeches is at the heart of the Toastmasters’ educational programme. At Epsom Speakers you’ll learn the importance of structuring a speech and about the power of using the right words at the right time. It’s not just the text; you’ll learn how to enliven any speech, talk or conversation with your body language and tone of voice. Step-by-step our members grow into competent speakers.
We believe in learning by doing and by receiving empowering positive feedback. Every speaker at our Club is commended; feedback and advice is given in evaluations to enable the speaker to grow and enhance the skills of all. Our members range from new to experienced speakers and from the terrified to the unshakable; we all learn from each other. You’ll find a member like you!
We’d love you to visit, there’s no obligation to join, just come along and find out more.
