All about  Worthing Speakers Club

History

Worthing Speakers Club was founded by noted public speaker Meg Heyworth. She also has the distinction of founding successful Toastmasters clubs in Eastbourne and Brighton. The club used to meet at the Charles Dickens pub in Heene Road, Worthing. However, continued growth in membership forced the club to seek a new venue for its regular meetings. So in August 2012, it moved to its present home at the Burlington Hotel on Marine Parade. Regular club meetings are held on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of every month.

Aims of the Club

Worthing Speakers is a not-for-profit club which is dedicated to fostering excellence in public speaking skills for the widest possible audience. We firmly believe that the ability to speak confidently in front of an audience can lead to enhanced opportunities in terms of an individual’s social and professional life.

Status of the Club

In April 2013, the club received full charter status with the Toastmasters International group of public speaking clubs. In June 2013, we received the Toastmasters Area 32 award for Most Improved Club of the Year 2012-2013’.
