Event description

Description

Northampton Speakers is a brand new club set up to help local people to improve their public speaking and leadership skills. We aim to provide a mutually supportive and positive learning environment in which every member has the opportunity to develop communication and leadership skills, which in turn foster self-confidence and personal growth.

What should we believe about Post-Truth fact checking.

"At one time we had truth and lies. Now we have truth, lies, and statements that may not be true but we consider too benign to call false. Euphemisms abound. We’re “economical with the truth,” we “sweeten it,” or tell “the truth improved.” The term deceive gives way to spin. At worst we admit to “misspeaking,” or “exercising poor judgment.” Nor do we want to accuse others of lying. We say they’re in denial. A liar is “ethically challenged,” someone for whom “the truth is temporarily unavailable.” *

* Ralph Keyes "The Post-Truth Era: Dishonesty and Deception in Contemporary Life".
