Where we are
We hold meetings in the function room upstairs at The Rugby Tavern Pub in Holborn, 19 Great James St, London, WC1N 3ES
Our nearest tube stations are Holborn which is about 5 minutes walk away. Chancery Lane and Russell Square are also very close by.
What do our members say?
When I first came to Holborn Speakers I dreaded public speaking but in just over a year I have delivered 10 speeches to complete the competent communicator award and competed in a humorous speech contest. The club is the perfect platform to learn and develop your communication skills in a relaxed and supportive environment. There are a range of roles to enhance your leadership skills and you are provided with ongoing feedback. Overall the club has instilled a new level of confidence in me and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone looking to excel at public speaking.
Holborn speakers has provided me with a place where I can practice my public speaking skills in a respectful and supportive environment. I see public speaking in the same way as improving at any sports, the more you practice, receive constructive feedback and practice again the more you will improve. You also get to meet great people, learn from them and have a fun time the first three Tuesdays of every month!
I joined Holborn Speakers in an effort to tackle my nervousness and improve my speaking ability in front of larger audiences. After a few months of attending Holborn Speakers, I was able to get my nervousness under control. Over a period of 12 months I delivered 7 voluntary speeches in front of an audience 70+. Before joining Toastmasters I was terrified of volunteering for those speeches, now I enjoy speaking in front of big audiences. Going to Holborn Speakers has turned into a hobby. Its a very friendly and supportive club.
