Happy New Year!

So 2020 is here! Like many people, we find the new year is an opportunity to both look back and look forward.

Liverpool Speakers Club had a very good year. We heard some amazing prepared and impromptu speeches and we added some new members, as well as welcoming back some old friends. Some of our members have been able to take on some of the chair and advisor roles at meetings for the first time.

The club has also been well represented in contests, with all of our representatives qualifying for the district contest in a couple of months.

We had a change at the top, with John Dove stepping into the role of club President.

So, what does 2020 have in store for Liverpool Speakers Club?

We want to continue building as a club. We want to keep adding new members. We want to focus on helping our members and guests become better all-round speakers by teaching them how to chair meetings and critically evaluate speeches.

We want to add some variety into our meetings by having some debate nights, reading nights and more.

We want to engage more with the public speaking community and the public. If you have any questions then you can contact us here, or through our social media.

We wish you all a happy and healthy 2020, and we hope to see you all at meeting this year!

September meeting

Our September meeting was a bit different than normal, as we held our annual speech contest.

Our club is part of the ASC, a national organisation. Every year, the ASC crowns a national champion in each of the three main disciplines of public speaking, prepared speeches, impromptu speaking (known as ‘topics’) and evaluation.

So, we wanted to crown a champion that we will send to represent the club at our local area competition. There were contestants in the speech contest spoke about diverse subjects such as tap dancing, abolishing copper coins and a completely new and original speech about fast food!

The club is delighted to announce that the winner of the 2019 Liverpool Speakers Club prepared speech contest, with a fantastic speech about the high street, is Satya Morarji! Well done Satya!

Our next meeting will be on October 14th. Guests are always welcome, so if you’ve ever wanted to try public speaking, then please come along!

January Meeting Roundup!

Liverpool Speakers Club got our year off to a great start, with an action-packed meeting to start the year.

Our prepared speeches were from a mix of new and experienced members, with Pam getting us off to a start with a speech on that little-talked about subject known as Brexit, then we were followed by Nick, who gave his first speech and then club President John gave a fun speech about New Year’s resolutions.

David then took the chair for the topics session where our members and, encouragingly, our guests, spoke on a wide range of topics where they shared things like their goals for 2019, and their cooking prowess!

Our next meeting is on February 11th, and all are welcome to come along!

Happy New Year!

The beginning of a new year is a time of reflection for everyone, who sit and think “what kind of year did I have?”

For us at Liverpool Speakers, 2018 was a very good year. We’ve had a year of successful meetings, listened to some great speeches and heard some very entertaining impromptu speeches. We’ve grown as a club, having added several new members throughout the year.

The club has also been very well represented in the ASC contests. Club Vice-President John got to the national finals for the Topics and Evaluation contests, and Matt has qualified for the district Speech competition.

But the beginning of a new year is also a time to look forward. After all, what is a resolution if not a wish for the year ahead?

So, what does the year ahead hold in store for Liverpool Speakers Club?

Well, we want to build on the work we did in 2018, and then some more! We want to grow further as a club, develop more speakers and get more people involved in some of the club roles.

We also want to vary our meetings, adding in some special nights for debating, reading and anything else we can think of.

We also want to engage more with both the wider ASC community and with others. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions then please let us know. You can get in touch via social media or through this website.

We also want to wish all of you a very happy, healthy and successful new year, and we hope to see you all at a meeting sometime this year!
