About Hamwic Speakers
Hamwic Speakers is a Southampton-based public speaking club. Today many people are more comfortable communicating by email or telephone, rather than face-to-face. Speaking to large or small groups, or even one to one, can be a nerve racking or stressful experience. Hamwic Speakers helps people to overcome these challenges and transform their public speaking into an enjoyable and successful experience.
Hamwic Speakers is part of the global network of Toastmasters International, and forms an area with clubs in Hampshire and Dorset. Toastmasters is a non-profit educational organization that teaches public speaking and leadership skills through its a worldwide network of clubs.
This confidence-boosting workshop will give participants a hands-on introduction to the art of public speaking. Participants will take part in a series of speaking exercises, giving and receiving constructive feedback on presentations and on impromptu speaking. Hamwic Speakers session leaders will provide additional feedback and key tips on preparing and delivering an engaging presentation.
About the Success School
