Why join a public speaking club?

There are lots of good reasons to join a club like Didsbury Speakers; here are a few of the most popular:

  • to overcome a fear of public speaking
  • to build confidence when presenting to an audience
  • to prepare for a specific event such as a wedding speech or an important presentation at work
  • to develop communication and leadership skills that are valuable in many areas of personal and professional life

Didsbury Speakers is Manchester's premier Public Speaking and Leadership club, and we usually meet at Withington Golf Club in West Didsbury every 1st & 3rd Wednesday of the month, however, we are temporarily online due to Covid-19.  Sign up on MeetUp to get the link if you aren't a member and join in the fun.

Our club is a friendly place to practice and develop our public speaking skills, learn how to improve and get valuable feedback. It’s also a great way to meet new and interesting people; we’re a very friendly bunch!


Come along to our next meeting to find out more. If you have the Meetup app let us know you're coming to visit in the Didsbury Speakers Meetup group, but don't worry if you haven't - just show up! You are welcome to attend as a guest, free of charge, as many times as you wish, and chances are you won’t be the only new face. As a guest, you will be able to participate in Table Topics and watch members accomplish their speeches.
