Welcome

Time to beat that fear of speaking in public and springboard your success to speaking confidently - do the best thing you can do for yourself and join today.

Learn to Speak with Confidence
by mastering the art of public speaking and  develop good communication skills in a relaxed and friendly environment with a Powertalk international speakers’ club.  New members are always welcome.
Enhance your business and social speaking skills:  good communication and leadership skills are built on confidence, clarity of thought and expression, and the ability to listen.  You may have been on a public speaking course, had presentation skills training or read many books on effective communication skills, but the only way to improve your skills is by practice.  Powertalk gives you the opportunity to practise in a friendly, supportive atmosphere, where you are given coaching by means of constructive feedback and advice.  Through coaching, supportive evaluation and practice at regular club meetings, members receive immediate and on-going improvement in their ability to address any audience.
