Are you keen to confidently build your public speaking technique? Would you like to learn how to master your body language and hone your presentation skills? Then join Strathclyde Speakers today!
At Strathclyde Speakers, we understand that often, public speaking skills are not formally taught. This can lead to anxiety when we are asked to the deliver presentations confidently at the university-level. We believe that public speaking is a skill and like any other, practice makes perfect. Whether you are a complete beginner or have some experience with oration, we provide a safe space to build up the experience necessary to speak with authority and with ease.
The key to becoming a good public speaker is continual practice and critical feedback. Joining Strathclyde Speakers provides you with the opportunity to deliver formal presentations, practice for job interviews, and any other speaking engagement in a safe and supportive environment.
Strathclyde Speakers are delighted to announce a brand new Public Speaking Programme which will be running in Semester 1 of the new academic year. We will be inviting applications from students across all faculties of the university and all year groups to participate in an 11-week structured programme with our public speaking coach.
A formal programme will be made available shortly along with the application link. Please note that spaces are very limited and only successful candidates will be able to participate in our activities during semester 1.
In semester two, we will be meeting once per fortnight in person within the Mandela Auditorium of the Strathclyde Students' Union. During these sessions we will be meeting with the rest of the group to practice any presentations that we have coming up and receieve feedback on this.
**Please note that the only activity that will be running during semester 1 is our public speaking programme which is by application only. Those who are unsuccessful in gaining a place on the programme will be able to participate in our semester 2 activities. Therefore, if you purchase a membership with us in semester 1, and you are not participating in our programme, you will need to wait until semester 2 to use your membership**.
We recommend that to get the most out of your experience you join us as a member. We ask for a small fee of £10 for the academic year which gives you access to our public speaking programme in semester 1 should you be successful in the application process (please see above) and to our workshops in semester 2.
Strathclyde Speakers is a professional society and as such, you can connect with us on LinkedIn.
