Speaking Enthusiastically Wins the Day – October 2nd

We had another energetic and fun packed evening at Epsom Speakers Club on Monday 2nd October. After the excitement of the humorous speak and table topic competitions, it was going to be hard to keep the energy going. With everybody’s valuable input, we managed to have another amazing evening, with learning, laughter and more learning […]

Laugh while you are learning to speak in public – 4th September

ESC meeting 7th August 2017

What a lively and energetic meeting we all experienced on Monday. Again I was really pleased to be presiding over such a group of talented people. I do hope you gained as much as I did from the experience and I hope the club goes from strength to strength. Even though the numbers were low, […]

Are We There Yet? – May 8th

“We got there in the end,” said Costa, General Evaluator, in his feedback to Toastmaster for the evening, Kevin Perkins on his handling of Monday’s meeting.
