Description

Back by popular demand, after the success of Geekspeak pilot, we're planning Geekspeak five weeks Speechcraft Course, a series of five evening sessions to crack public speaking. Our motivation is to get people who are not seen enough on public platforms to use their voices confidently and powerfully. If you fit the bill, come along.

Once a week at 70 Cowcross Street, London EC1M 6EJ starting on 20th September and every Wednesday evening thence.

The Training will be run by senior members of London Victorians Toastmasters Club, London's premier Toastmasters club located in Victoria.

Each week we will practice impromptu speaking, deliver prepared speeches, provide feedback on speeches, introduce speakers and have a lot of fun. Each participant will receive a workbook, with detailled instructions on how to take the most of the course and how to complete the course's speaking projects. The cost for 5 sessions is £90. We are all volunteers, all the money will go to London Victorians and can’t profit individuals, which is why it is such amazing value!

There are only 10 places, so waste no time!
