"It would be fantastic to see you at the club and we can answer any other questions you may have. We hope to see you soon".
"You may have many questions before you come along and visit us, so take a look below and see if the answer is there. If you cant find the answer then dont hesitate to get in contact with us and we will be sure to get back to you promptly".
Will I have to speak on my first visit?Guests are most welcome to introduce themselves at the start of the meeting and there also opportuntiies to speak throughout the evening. Getting up and speaking is optional though, so if you just want to come along and listen, then that is no problem. You will recieive a warm and friendly welcome.
How many people will be at the meeting?Norwich Speakers Club is incredibly successful and we regularly have attendance between 20-30 people, but dont let that put you off. People are from many different walks of life, with varying speaking abilities but we are all there to develop our speaking skills and overall confidence when speaking in front of others.
What will I speak about?Here at Norwich Speakers Club most people are working through different projects on an educational programme called Pathways. The meetings are usually in two halves whereby in the first half of the meeting people have an opportunity to develop their impromptu speaking skills, speaking for up to two minutes. In the second half of the meeting there are usually three planned speeches, and once you have joined you can get integrated into the meeting schedules, enabling you to participate as much or as little as you want.
Can you help me to become less nervous when I speak?Public Speaking is the number one fear, above heights, snakes and spiders, so it is only natural to feel nervous in this situatuon. Believe it or not even the most able speakers at the club experience a degree of nerves and over time, with support and nurture you will become less nervous and grow in confidence. You will certainly be sure of an incredibly supportive and friendly learning environment.
Will the experience help me give presentations at work?There is no doubt that the more we practice something we are nervous about doing, the more confident we become. Norwich Speakers Club will help you to become a more eloquent and articulate speaker, providing you the opportunity required to develop your skills, whilst being coached and encouraged every step of the way.
What is the commitment after I join the club.Meetings are held fortnightly and once you have joined you will be integrated into the meeting programmes which are planned 5 meeting in advance. If you are allocated a duty or speaking opportunity then it is your responsibility to contact the Vice President Education or the Secretary to organise a replacement if you cannot make the meeting. From a financial point of view, this is discussed on the WHAT DOES IT COST page.
