Welcome to Renfrewshire Speakers Club
     Where people of all abilities learn to speak confidently in public

Hello, my name is Margaret Cowie, President of RSC. Our meeting on Thursday had three interesting and entertaining speeches on the theme of 'Keep it Simple' followed by three helpful and constructive evaluations. We also had two visitors and a previous visitor has now decided to become a member.

RSC President

Our next meeting on the 13th October has a subject of 'Telling a Story' which will also demonstrate how to use notes when delivering a speech. Please note our new starting time is 19:30 and a we will finish by 21:30.

Perhaps this is the encouragement you need for you to think about developing your own communication skills in a friendly, helpful, club.  Please accept this invitation to come along as a visitor, on the 13th October at 19:30pm, Room 3, Johnstone Town Hall. You won't be asked to do anything, just enjoy the evening and join us for a coffee. If you feel nervous about speaking in public you will see how we can help you. I hope to welcome you on Thursday night  - remember we are a mixed club so why not bring your partner. 


It was only a few years ago that I felt the way you probably feel now, when you're asked to "say a few words" perhaps at a business event or a family function. Absolutely petrified! That's when I joined the Speakers Club, a mixed independent organisation, because I had very little confidence in myself and my abilities. won’t pretend it was easy. At first, I was literally dumbstruck when asked to speak. Rigid with fear!

But gradually with patience, advice, encouragement and much kindness from fellow Speakers I have learned to overcome this hindrance in my personal development and it has changed my world in ways I would never have dreamed. I can honestly say that being a member of our Speakers Club has changed my life. It has made me the person I am today.  More confident, ready to step up, and take office.   


Our website has additional information about our Club including our email address,
Meeting dates etc.  We look forward to meeting you and you’ll be made very welcome. You've got nothing to lose and a great deal to gain!
