(This meetup is private, which means it has nothing to do with the National Theatre. If lost, please do not ask security to locate you to this event! Please look at description.This event is for beginners.Come and get the chance to speak in a supportive and friendly environment.

What makes this public speaking session different from others you ask?- There is a strong emphasis on self expression, creativity, trial and error, and most importantly, speaking practice!Here's how it works:You will put your name in a hat/bowl and when your name is chosen, you will be asked to perform.You will speak for 2 minutes on a random topic given by the audience. This is called an impromptu speech.We will do 2-3 rounds of speaking followed by some feedback at the end from our audience.The purpose of impromptu speaking is so participants can learn to think and speak on their feet! And so therefore based on our experience I may change the structure of the event on occasion to help you learn different aspects of impromptu speaking.TIP: Give your impromptu speech the following 3 sections:1. Introduction ("Tonight, I'm going to talk about....")2. Body ("Here is my personal experience....")3. Conclusion ("So, my key message is ....")Each speech is to be 2 minutes long.You're not obligated to speak, although I will encourage you.Where to find us:3rd Floor of the National theatre (Oliver section)Call me Valentin on 07713123321 if lost. My phone will be turned off at 5:00pm, so get in touch before!Cost: £5 (£2 for Students)Spaces limited strictly to 15.Event is wheelchair accessible.See you all soon!
