7. 12 Sept Craven Speakers Club – Skipton  7.40pm

Want to learn How to speak on local radio or to promote your event?

Julian Hotchkiss of Dales Radio is to launch Craven Speakers Club Autumn Season
by running an introductory workshop on how to record announcements about local
events, how to send them in to Dales Radio and how to interview people.
He says: ..”.. and to think about how you might get a message across in public when time
is limited. With technology these days it is so easy to be able to record a piece and
sent it to broadcasters, including the BBC – a great opportunity to get
your voice heard and your point across!

This is at 7.45pm  Monday 12 September, at 28 Otley Street, Skipton BD23 1EW
(Free plus donations). There will also be a demonstration of a Speaker Club
mini-speech and evaluation. All are welcome. If you like, come prepared with
(brief) information about a Dales event you would like to publicise,
and have your chance to be on the air waves.

Speakers Club is FUN. Want an evening out with a laugh?
We all enjoy the evenings.
