Student club offers training to build confidence in public speaking

Imperial College Speakers Toastmasters Club is a student-run club to help Imperial students improve their public speaking and communication skills in a friendly and supportive environment. At every meeting, students have the opportunity to give speeches on a variety of topics, practice impromptu speaking, offer constructive and detailed feedback to each other, and socialize with a diverse group of people from across the Imperial College community. Each meeting provides a valuable opportunity for students to hone the public speaking skills that are essential to effective lab meetings, conferences, class presentations, and other professional events.

Our club serves undergraduate and postgraduate students from all backgrounds. We recognise that students, especially those in the STEM subjects, are eager to find a welcoming venue to practice their speaking skills. We would also like to increase our diversity and reach out to students who would benefit from this club. Our club essentially provides the same service as professional public speaking coaching, but at a membership fee that is a fraction of the typical price of coaching. (more…)
