Northampton Speakers

Learn Public Speaking and Leadership

Communicate with Confidence!

Are you nervous of speaking in public?  Planning to give at Best Man speech?  Worried about making presentations at work?  Perhaps you want to build your self-confidence?  Then you've come to the right place!

Since 2014, Northampton Speakers has been helping local people to improve their public speaking and leadership skills. We aim to provide a mutually supportive and positive learning environment in which every member has the opportunity to develop at their own pace, which in turn fosters self-confidence and personal growth.

How does it work?

We have a ‘learn by doing’ approach. Our members present speeches to develop a variety of public speaking skills, and also carry out a variety of other meeting roles to practice skills such as listening and giving feedback. Each member works at their own pace – some people like to throw themselves into giving speeches straight away, while others prefer to spend some time attending meetings and carrying out smaller roles to build up their confidence.

Want to know more about us?

As well as browsing this site, you are welcome to come along to any of our club meetings at no charge, where you'll get the chance to meet our members and see what happens at a typical meeting.

We'd also love to see you on social media where you can find useful tips on public speaking and leadership - links can be found at the bottom of the page.
