London Public Speakers usually meet at The Shipwrights Arms, 88 Tooley Street, London SE1 2TF. Google Maps group BUT please check exact details of our next meeting on our meetup.com group, as venue does sometimes change
We don’t have a single person who always takes charge of our meetings. Instead everyone participates to practice and learn new skills by taking a meeting role such as timer, evaluator or grammarian, giving a prepared speech from the Toastmasters manual or taking part in the impromptu speaking section called Table Topics.
No. If you compare our membership fees to various courses you can attend, London Public Speakers is the least expensive and in our opinion the most effective way to learn public speaking and to develop confidence.
The joining process is very simple at London Public Speakers. You only need to fill in a brief membership form and pay both the joining fee and membership fees. You will need to be more than 18 years old to be eligible for membership of Toastmasters International.
