Welcome To Holborn Speakers
- I want a safe environment where I can improve my public speaking.
- I want to improve my confidence before an audience.
- My speeches are bland and dull – how do I inject some passion?
- I want to become an effective communicator.
- I would like to make a living from public speaking.
Does any of this sound familiar? If so, Holborn Speakers can help. We are a public speaking club that is affiliated with Toastmasters International, a non-profit organisation. There are more than 11,000 affiliated clubs worldwide with over 215,000 members. Our mission is to provide a supportive environment for people to practice and improve their public speaking, communication and leadership skills.
Where and When
When: Tuesday nights at 6.45pm (3 Tuesdays per month)
Where: The Devereux Pub, 20 Devereux Court, London WC2R 3JJ
Nearest tube stations are Holborn, Chancery Lane and Temple, which are about 8 minutes walk away.
Our regular meetings are normally held on the first three Tuesdays of each month, but that may change depending on venue availability. We will always meet on a Tuesday, but may have to move one of the meetings to the fourth or fifth Tuesday of the month. If the Devereux Pub is not available at all, we use one of our backup locations instead.
Be sure to check out our schedule to see the exact dates and locations of our meetings. Also, keep an eye on our Twitter feed for last minute notifications.
Your first (and biggest!) step to improvement is to come along to one of our meetings as a guest. Our club thrives on guests and we have many new faces each week. We won’t make you speak if you don’t want to and we won’t try to sign you up either. In fact, we always recommend that people new to Toastmasters visit a couple of the clubs in London as a guest. Most people come back and join Holborn Speakers, so we can confidently say that we’re probably the friendliest of all the London Toastmasters clubs!
You can come as a guest as often as you like until you decide whether it’s for you or not. Most of our guests become members and we hope you will too.
Still Have Doubts?
We were all guests once, and are now glad that we turned up to Holborn Speakers one Tuesday night. It’s no exaggeration to say that Holborn Speakers has opened a new chapter in our lives.
You won’t be alone in a sea of seasoned public speakers. Besides the other guests, our newer members will also be there. They will be happy to share their own stories and reasons for joining.
We hope to hear from you or see you soon.
