EVENTS IN DETAIL:

1. Mon 11 Apr: Craven Speakers Club, 7.40pm Skipton
www.craven-speakers.org.uk
I am so lucky to be able to attend Speakers Club. The other members
are helpful and friendly. We learn lots from hearing two people speak
for 7 min each, on fascinating topics, then hear more experienced
people analyse good points in the way they gave their speeches.
It is stimulating. Maybe I am a “self improvement” junkie.
