What We Do
Our members meet most weeks with the aim of improving public speaking and leadership skills. If you’re interested in getting better at public speaking, we can help!
Holborn Speakers provides you with a structured course to build your public speaking skills, which you complete at your own pace.
You can get a mentor to coach you, support you with your speaking, and provide enhanced feedback to achieve your public speaking goals.
We’ll also develop your leadership skills in areas such as mentoring, communication, and delivering feedback in order to motivate people.
