With only three meetings left this calendar year the annual speech competition is fast approaching. This is held on our last meeting of the year which is the 9th of December. The competition is open to all members of Wimbledon Speakers Club regardless of length of membership or experience. The theme will be announced at our first November meeting and will be decided by our immediate past president Michael. We would encourage everyone to have a go as it is great experience. This is also an excellent meeting to attend as you get to see how different speakers tackle the same subject. There will still be the usual opportunity for participation in topics prior to the competition.
Each year we take July and August off from Wimbledon Speakers Club for two reasons. One is to recharge the creative juices ready to start afresh in September, the other is a more practical point that it is holiday season and people want to spend time either at home or away with family.
We look forward to welcoming back our regulars and also invite anybody thinking of joining to come along as our guest to check out the meeting before making the commitment to join.
The speakers club is great not just if you are looking to be a public speaker but helps to build confidence for all areas of life where speaking is necessary including just meeting new people, work meetings, network events.
Our first meeting is on Wednesday 9th July at our usual venue, William Morris House, between Wimbledon Station and South Wimbledon Station. The meetings start at 7:30 pm and you can park for free in the surrounding roads after 7:00 pm.
I will be chairing the first meeting and you are assured of a warm welcome and a coffee or tea of various kinds during the interval.
