Speeches group plans to go backwards at Christmas

A CLUB which helps people work on their public speaking is looking for new members.

Thame Speakers Club, which celebrated its 30th birthday last weekend, can help stage-shy members of the public overcome their fears and go on to make award-winning presentations.

The club welcomes interested members of the public to come to meetings for free with no requirement to stand up and speak and for Christmas the group is holding a special ‘reverse meeting’.

Club representative George Anderson said: “Normally we have three or four speeches followed by evaluations, as this is how we learn which areas need improving. This time though, the evaluations will come first followed by the speeches themselves.”
