Welcome to Holborn Speakers! The best Toastmasters club… in the world!
My name is Robin Sundström and I’m a professional speaker, video presenter andcommunication coach AND… a proud member of Holborn Speakers.
My background though is not related to speaking at all and what’s funny is that oneof the main reasons why I ended up in this line of work… was that I happened towalk in to a Toastmasters meeting less than a year ago… was asked to speak andrealized… that I love it.
After having had my first Toastmasters experience I went around London visiting abunch of different clubs and eventually ended up joining Holborn Speakers – the best& friendliest club in London.
I felt straight away that I wanted to join because the vibe in the Rugby Tavern wherethe club met was so relaxed and the members were constantly joking around anddidn’t seem to take themselves too seriously – even though I could tell that the clubhoused some really high-caliber speakers.
Holborn Speakers felt like a great place to learn and have fun – so I joined the cluband less than a year later I had managed to make it all the way to two nationalspeaking finals – and honestly I don’t know if I could have done it without the club.
The most important thing if you want to get better at something is putting in the workbut if you don’t enjoy the process… it gets a lot harder.
At Holborn Speakers getting better is easy – not just because of all the feedback andsupport you’ll be getting butt… because you’ll also have a lot of fun in the processwhich will make that stage seem a lot less scary.
Thank you very much for watching & hope to see you at the Rugby Tavern real soon!
