Joining City Women Speakers helped me to become a more eloquent and confident speaker. The meeting environment is professional yet supportive, and the feedback from fellow members is invaluable!

City Women Speakers has been a revelation for me, discovering it is actually possible to get a handle on the fear of speaking in public after decades of sweating buckets.

VP of Membership

City Women Speakers helped me improve both my public speaking and leadership skills. The only regret I have is not finding out about it sooner.

Ask yourself ‘why not do it?'

Because we can help you become more confident when speaking and interacting with people. 

  • We offer a supportive environment where you can practise and improve your communication and public speaking skills.

  • We also offer leadership development pathways for members looking for career progression.

When I joined Toastmasters in October 2015, I planned to be a member for a year.  I just wanted to get a little bit of confidence so that I could give the occasional presentation to small groups at work. And maybe gain enough confidence that I would ‘have a voice’ and be able to speak up at meetings.

Four years later and I’ve held 3 roles on my club’s committee (Secretary, VP Public Relations and VP Education) plus a year as Area Director, looking after 7 clubs with 190 members and I’ve just started a year as President of my club, City Women Speakers.  I regularly prepare and deliver 30-45 minute training presentations, organise events with many attendees & presenters and have pushed the boundaries of my comfort zone to the extent that they have given up ….. and disappeared. 

I think it’s safe to say that I’ve ‘found my voice’ and so much more as a Toastmaster and a member of City Women Speakers.
