I joined Sutton Coldfield Speakers’ Club in September 2013 for two reasons. Firstly, due to an upheaval at work I became home- rather than office-based which I found isolating. To combat this lack of personal interaction at work I needed a new social outlet. Secondly, as well as the day job, I am a writer and I wanted to find the confidence to talk to an audience about my writing in order to promote my books.
Sutton Coldfield Speakers’ Club succeeded on both counts. Over the last few years I’ve met a lot of new people, my general self-confidence has improved vastly and I’ve actually enjoyed giving talks to groups of people outside of the supportive Speakers’ Club environment
