Olwen Edwards is running the “I Speak Confidently” speakers group which helps people polish public speaking skills.
“For many the prospect is simply too terrifying, but is doesn’t have to be like that,” said Ms Edwards, a past president of a local association of speakers clubs.
“I Speak Confidently” helps polish skills for one minute introductions, 10 or 20 minute talks/pitches, presentations, workshops, demonstrations and social speeches.
Groups are limited to a maximum of 15 members, and meet twice a month at a range of venues in Calderdale. firstname.lastname@example.org and www.ispeakconfidently.com
