What’s it like joining Spa Speakers? Steve Bird shares his early experience with us.
The Spa Speakers Committee
I have been a member of the Spa speakers group for a very short time having been introduced to the group by a friend. I must confess my expectation level was not very high. However, having attended approximately 10 meetings, I can say without doubt, that I am very pleased I was provided with the opportunity as I am finding the meetings enjoyable and fun. I am also hopeful they will help me improve my current (very poor) presentation abilities.
I have found the general atmosphere of the group meetings to be very friendly and supportive. Each meeting is organised with a full and varied agenda and there are many opportunities for everyone to participate at each meeting. We have also had theme and competition nights during my first 10 meetings.
I have just completed my first presentation and although I was very nervous I was pleased with the end result. I have received a lot of positive comments and suggestions on how I can improve. I am now actually looking forward to my next presentation in the new year.
