Talking for the Terrified

14th September 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Have you ever been asked to thank the speaker?  You agree but you are quaking in your shoes and the right words don’t seem to come out????

Have you been nominated as WI president and would love to accept the honour but feel you cannot stand up and address the whole WI?

Have you longed to take part in a debate – had valid points to add to the

arguments but just have not had the confidence to speak to

the whole room?


This is the Day for you!


The day will be led by three members who felt exactly as you do only three years ago! These members went on to achieve a Distinction in the English Speaking Board exam, they might still have butterflies when standing up in front of other members but they have learnt how to control their nerves and what to say!


This will be a fun day with plenty of laughter but you will go away having the confidence to stand up and speak in front of your fellow members.  You might even want to progress to the next stage!


We will provide the tea, the coffee, the biscuits and the fun but please wear comfortable clothes, bring a packed lunch and your sense of humour! This event is free of charge.

Closing date is 17 August 2017
