At the heart of Southampton
Hamwic Speakers is a nonprofit Southampton-based public speaking club, and it is run by a volunteer committee. Today many people are more comfortable communicating by email or telephone, rather than face-to-face. Speaking to large or small groups, or even one to one, can be a nerve racking or stressful experience. At Hamwic Speakers, you can learn how to overcome these challenges and transform your public speaking into an enjoyable and successful experience.
Hamwic Speakers is affiliated to Toastmasters International and is part of District 91 (UK South).

"There are three things I particularly like about TM:
1) The rate of improvement I see in people. It's amazing to see how fast they progress, and enjoyable to watch. It's also nice to feel I'm making progress myself.
2) The friendliness. Hamwic is a very warm, welcoming club, where I've always been made to feel at home.
3) The positive atmosphere. In feedback from other members, and particularly evaluations, people always find good things to say about my speeches, no matter how little I give them to work with."
