What is a Speakers Club?
Clubs can take many forms but they are generally fun, friendly and made up of people just like you. The members or your local speakers club can help you to conquer your fear of public speaking and improve your presentation skills.
Speakers Club Versus Commercial Courses?
Commercial Public Speaking courses are generally high intensity courses, which take place over one, two or three days. They teach you the mechanics of public speaking and presentation skills. In such a short time you may learn the fundamentals… but you won’t learn how to cope with your fear… that can only be done over an extended period.
A club will also teach you public speaking and presentation skills, but in addition they will address the dreaded nerves. And because the training is extended, you will learn how to cope with those butterflies, sweaty palms, dry mouth and all the rest. Most speakers clubs are non commercial / non profit organisations, the membership fees are nominal… usually less than £5.00 per meeting.
You can type “speakers clubs” into Google and you get about eleven and a half million sites to choose from… but you’ve got better things to do, hopefully… fortunately you can spend just a few minutes looking at the info below, easy peasy.

Public Speaking Tip: If you use humour to make a point…..then you won’t bomb.
“ When you tell a joke that makes a point, people recognise that fact.So even if they don’t find the joke funny, they still realise that you’re making a point. ”
