Broadgate Speakers, the friendliest Toastmasters club in London, is hosting a Storytelling workshop!
The meeting will start with prepared speeches by two of the club’s members, and will continue with the workshop in the second part of the evening. The workshop will be led by the club’s member, Alan Thomas, and will aim to show how writing and telling stories can be much more effective if we draw on our own lifetime listening experiences.
Alan will encourage active participation and interaction, so be prepared for one hour of true experiential learning.
