Conquer your fear of public speaking with our help....it could change your life!

About this event

Do you get anxious at the thought of public speaking?

Do you feel awkward and self-conscious during workplace meetings?

Maybe you want to get ahead in work and improve your leadership skills.....

We all know speaking with confidence is really useful....but not everyone is good at it. You might have read the books, understand the principles and learned the 'do's and don'ts' but still quiver at the prospect of standing up and speaking.

The key to overcoming this is by doing it. Not just once or twice - but over and over again! By repeatedly getting up and speaking, the fear and anxiety gradually disappears and it starts to feel....normal. And you never know, you might even start to enjoy it!

Stirling Speakers is the place to come to practice and get used to speaking in public. We are a small, friendly club and offer a safe, supportive environment for you to start and continue on this (initially) nerve-wracking journey. Every member has been where you are now and understands how you feel. So you can practice your speaking skills safe in the knowledge that you won't be judged, mocked or ridiculed and it doesn't matter if it's not perfect. You will get feedback each and every time you speak; feedback that highlights what went well and provides suggestions on how to improve the bits that didn't go so well.

Our regular meetings follow a structured, tried-and-tested format, which introduces participants to the skills and techniques of confident speaking. The meetings are designed to help all levels and development is at each individual's own pace. You don't have to do anything you're not ready to do.

Members are encouraged to practice their speaking skills, using a guided programme and with lots of encouragement and helpful feedback. Areas covered include:

  • dealing with nerves
  • body language and vocal variety
  • impromptu and prepared speaking
  • watching your language and keeping to time!

Your first 3 visits are free of charge so you can try it out and see if it's right for you. If you do decide to join, your membership fee will roughly equate to the price of a coffee and cake per meeting so is an affordable and worthwhile investment in your future.

We run hybrid meetings and those attending in person meet at The Mayfield Centre, Stirling. If you would prefer to attend online at any time please email stirlingspeakers@gmail.com for the Zoom link.

Stirling Speakers is based in Central Scotland, UK, meet every 2nd and 4th Monday of the month from 7pm - 9pm (BST) and are members of Toastmasters International.
