Monthly Lightning Talks
Thundercloud is a monthly event featuring a selection of lightning talks. It strives to be welcoming to anyone, and enable everyone to share their passions, whether that be tech, art, fashion, or blueberry muffins.
Thundercloud is a great place to come hear what makes the people of London tick, or to try your hand at public speaking. We are extremely eager to welcome first time speakers! Thundercloud operates a safe space for all attendees. All attendees are bound by our Code of Conduct.
Each month's event will last approximately 2 hours.
The first hour will feature four 7-minute, pre-selected, lightning talks, with space for a break and discussion in between.
The final hour then features our wildcard slots; anyone from the audience is welcome to come up and speak, whether they've prepared or not! Give it a shot!
Want to speak?

- To speak in a wildcard slot... just turn up with your talk!
I haven't given a talk before, I don't know if I should...
You absolutely should! Thundercloud is the perfect event for first-time speakers to flex their wings and give it a go. The talk length is short, and the crowd is friendly; you'll not only get great experience, and feedback (if you want it!), but you'll realise how much fun public speaking actually is.
