Who we are

Become an effective speaker

Do you need help with any aspect of speaking to an audience? Do you need to gain confidence as well as technical skills?

Member clubs of the Association of Speakers Clubs (ASC) can help. The three ASC clubs shown below provide Public Speaking Training for Birmingham, the West Midlands and Worcestershire.

All clubs are not-for-profit and run on a voluntary basis. Nevertheless, they provide professional level training to develop the skills and confidence of speakers. Unlike commercially available training courses, ASC clubs provide support over the long term, hence allowing speakers to develop at their own pace.

What we do

Become a confident speaker

Speaking confidently looks easy when you see someone else doing it. But unfortunately a fear of public speaking affects a great many people, often stopping them from achieving all they might. When faced with the prospect of speaking in public, emotions range from nervousness to sheer terror. Perhaps public speaking is a rather misleading term. What we are talking about is speaking to any group of people, whatever the number, in any situation that goes beyond an informal conversation with family or friends.

The good news is that it is possible to overcome our fears and to learn to speak confidently. Our speakers’ clubs operate in a structured and professional manner but aim to have fun along the way. They rely on members supporting each other to become confident and effective speakers.
