Unvarnished lessons from his journey to 2nd Place in the 2017 World Championships of Public Speaking

On 27th November, Excalibur Speakers is excited to host a workshop presented by our member Simon Bucknall, 2nd Place winner in the 2017 World Championship of Public Speaking. This is the first and biggest chance to hear the full story of his journey to that 2nd Place and all that he learned.

Each year, more than 30,000 speakers enter the Toastmasters International Speech Contest, competing for a place in the finals of the World Championship of Public Speaking.

In his journey to the World Championship, held in Vancouver Canada, Simon Bucknall’s contest speeches went on a roller-coaster journey - countless re-writes, practice sessions and waves of constructive feedback.

In this practical, interactive and empowering two hour session, discover the lessons Simon learnt on that journey and how they can make the difference for YOUR public speaking...

Please join us at the Grange Hotel Holborn at 6.45 for a 7pm sharp start.
