Get Confident in Public Speaking by learning and practising in a supportive environment

About this event

Join us as a guest for FREE at this in-person and online event hosted by Brighton & Hove Speakers Club: the Toastmasters public speaking club for the seaside city.

Our meetings provide members and guests with the opportunity to develop and practice speaking and leadership skills.

We meet every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month from 7.30 pm until 9.30 pm.

What Happens in Our Meetings

We devote the first half of the meeting to prepared speeches. Members sign up in advance to write and rehearse a short speech before delivering it to the audience.

The second half of the meeting begins with a series of evaluations. Every prepared speaker in the first half receives constructive feedback and advice on improving their speeches from other members.

We then have a go at delivering impromptu speeches in a section called Table Topics. Guests will get a taste of public speaking by joining us in Table Topics. This is a fun and popular segment that challenges you to think on your feet and get used to speaking off-the-cuff to an audience. We will invite attendees to take part by talking about a given topic for up to two minutes.

Impromptu speaking can be scary for newcomers, but it’s something you’ll want to keep coming back to time and time again!

Agenda Highlights
