Most of us dread public speaking. But at some point we find ourselves forced to make a speech. And we worry: Will my jokes fall flat? What if I freeze? Is it okay to read notes? What if people walk out?
Union Club member John-Paul Flintoff has just published A Modest Book About How To Make An Adequate Speech (Short Books) – and in this online event, exclusively for Union Club members, he shows his bruises and tentatively offers a few tips ahead of the book’s release.
This event (and the book) don’t promise to magically transform you into a fast-talking corporate hotshot; but we hope that they will show you how to think about public speaking in a new way, and with a spot of luck, you will achieve adequacy…
… if not better!
HOW TO ATTEND

The event should last approximately one hour, but we may stretch to 90 minutes max if there’s an appetite for conversation and discussion – no pressure to stick around!
