Our monthly SpeakUp! Club runs each Thursday morning at Hartford Hall, Hartford, Cheshire 9.30 -12.30am. Do you want to develop speaking skills in bite size chunks so you don't get overwhelmed? Do you want to get to be a better speaker by regularly practice presenting and speaking to keep up the momentum ? Do you really value honest, direct, supportive feedback? Would you like to be able to drop in when you have something coming up? Would you like to top up your speaking skills  when you've got stuck in a rut?   If the answer to any of these questions is YES, then come along to the sessions ( or book 6 and plan them in your diary and make a saving too!) Dates for 2016 are: 25th February, 24th March, 21st April, 19th May, 16th June, 14th July, 8th September, 6th October, 3rd November, 1st December.

Here's what Speaking Club members have to say...

The phenomenal women speaking club has been a complete revelation for me. Public speaking is something that I’ve always dreaded and my aim has always just been to get through it, without making a total fool of myself by stuttering and shaking!! After a few sessions with Catherine, I’ve gained confidence and realised there’s a whole art to putting your presentation together. Instead of just getting through a presentation, I now think about how I’m going to deliver it and what techniques I’m going to use, I still feel nervous but also confident that I can do a good presentation. This training is the best CPD I’ve ever done and what you learn is absolute gold, thank you!!! The speaking club has been really useful in stimulating thinking around what I need to say and how messages are expressed, and I have applied some of techniques and concepts introduced by Catherine in my work. I enjoy the balance between input from Catherine, and the opportunity to speak and gain feedback from the other women present.  The small group size is essential to maintain this balance.
