How it happens
We are in the middle of an economic slowdown and employees are being laid off. Yes, that is indeed sad but there is a silver lining to all this. There are a lot of us, who when jolted out of our comfort zone, do our best. Many will take this opportunity to upskill themselves.
If you are like us, someone who has always wanted to improve their speaking skills, this would be a perfect opportunity to do that and our club will definitely be worth your consideration.
You might be an expert in your field but to take your ideas far and wide, you need a powerful tool for self-expression. And that is public speaking. Our club provides a safe and encouraging environment for you to become better and better at the art of public speaking.
We have had a fantastic 2022 year. We added new members, we hosted many events, many of our members have grown their presentation and communication skills multifold and we had so much fun learning about new year resolutions.

Practice makes a man perfect, they say. For those of us who are practicing our speeches every week, this is no longer a quote. We have seen this working in our lives and that keeps us motivated.
