Help Is At Hand

It doesn't matter what situation you find yourself in, with the help of Speak For Yourself, not only can you learn the skills and techniques for speaking to groups of people but you also build up your confidence to do it well.

Speak For Yourself is a group of people who meet regularly to help each other to learn and practise public speaking and related skills. We do short, simple exercises, give positive and constructive feedback to each other and share our individual experiences. The meetings are quite relaxed, hands-on and a bit of fun too!
