Bromsgrove Speakers Club
How can I improve my public speaking and presentation skills? Join us!
We are a not-for-profit club. We aim to help our members gain speaking confidence, as well as technique. The club is a chartered member of the national Association of Speakers Clubs (ASC).
When you become a member you will join our speaker development programme. You'll receive a copy of the ASC Speakers Guide, which will tell you all you need to know about speaking. It contains details of the speaking assignments that members work through as they develop their skills. Our ethos is that members contribute to the personal development of other members. We are very supportive, especially of those who are particularly nervous when facing an audience. We meet all year round on a fortnightly basis. Each meeting is self-contained, therefore it makes no difference when you join us.
Competitions are not the main focus of our activities. However, some members take part in contests because the experience gained can accelerate their development. We are delighted to have won the West Midlands Team Speaking contest for the Blarney Stone Trophy in 2018. This followed on from two of our members reaching the ASC National Finals in 2017. And one of them became National Speaking Champion. Join us. Who knows what you might achieve? You will certainly improve your public speaking and presentation skills!

We are not a networking group. We ask members to refrain from attempting to promote their businesses, charity fundraising or any other activities not directly associated with Bromsgrove Speakers Club or the Association of Speakers Clubs. Of course, you can use the skills and confidence you've gained with us to speak at networking and other events.
