Hello again. Next Thursday, 14th October, Renfrewshire Speakers meet again in The Halls, 5 King Street Paisley PA1 2PP when the theme for three of our members will be 'Tidying up The Planet'. Each speaker will talk for a maximum of 8 minutes with their own slant on this subject and then be evaluated by fellow Club Members.  

As always we will then have a coffee break followed by an 'Off The Cuff' session when most members will be given a subject (without prior warning) to speak on for just three minutes.  

Could you do that? The answer is "yes you can" by following our 10 point plan to develop your skills and only you will decide when you are ready to deliver your first speech on a subject of your own choice. There’s no pressure to join so why not come along as a visitor on Thursday 14th October at 19:30hrs (we finish by 21:30) to just enjoy the evening - we are a small friendly club and you'll be made very welcome.

 

Perhaps you're thinking this is not for you? Do any of the situations at the bottom of this page seem familiar? They all have one thing in common – the need to speak to a group of people! For some this comes naturally, for many it’s the start of sleepless nights worrying about how to prepare and deliver an effective performance.  It can probably be summed up in one word – NERVES!

 

Not surprising when this could range from delivering a Business Presentation or a Job Interview to a social occasion such as Father of the Bride or Family Anniversary.

 

Clearly the outcome could affect your future prospects, help land a new job, or simply help you to enjoy, rather than dread, a social occasion e.g. a family wedding. 

You’re not alone, all of our members had the same concerns when they first came to RSC. I would like to invite you to a club meeting to see for yourself how we can help you gain the confidence to speak in public. You’ll be made very welcome.
