Would you like to be able to speak more effectively on that odd
occasion when you have to speak in public – whether chairing a
meeting, giving a vote of thanks,  giving a reading, talking about a
school or work project?
* Come and learn tips.
* Encourage friends to come who might benefit.
* Meet a friendly group of supportive people.
www.craven-speakers.org.uk

People usually come and watch for the first couple of sessions so you
would not have to speak on the first meetings (unless you really
wanted to)
The beginning of term is a good time to start.
If you have a specific event in mind we can help.
