Public Speaking Club

Become the leader and speaker you want to be!

Have you ever forgotten your text, lost your track during a public presentation, broken out in a sweat or felt sick to your stomach? Is it difficult to give a speech, even if it’s just in front of your classmates? In short, do you want to learn how to become a confident public speaker and a strong leader?

Or are you already good enough to actually teach others?

If so, our Public Speaking Club is the place for you. You’ll find a supportive learn-by-doing environment that allows you to achieve your goals at your own pace.

We have well prepared meetings once a week (alternatively on Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons) where everyone has a role. Each meeting starts with 2-3 prepared speeches based on the speaker manual. The second part is a free-for-all improvisation round where you have 15 seconds to prepare a 1-2 minute speech based on a random topic. So even guests can take part here. And the third part consists of the evaluation part, where pre-assigned evaluators will assess your presentation according to grammar, ‘ah-s’ and pauses, time keeping etc.

We welcome both Danish and international students, although speeches are only held in English. As a member of our Public Speaking Club, you can automatically attend any Toastmasters club in the world as well as all their international competitions and events.
