Public Speaking in Southampton – Hamwic Speakers


Hamwic people

Overcoming nerves…

Polishing existing public speaking skills…

Supporting others to stand-up and speak…

Whatever stage you are at in developing your public speaking and presentation skills, Hamwic Speakers is a friendly and supportive group of beginner and experienced speakers that meets twice a month to develop our public speaking skills.

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.

Developing leadership skills too

As a member of the Southampton branch of Toastmasters, you can learn how to successfully formulate, express and sell your ideas and yourself and reduce the nervousness you feel when you speak. You can improve your ability to listen and evaluate other people’s ideas, and develop vital leadership skills along the way.
