The Public Speaking Society at the University of Warwick was established in 2005, originally as Warwick Speakers. Since then we have established a presence in all facets of student life on campus. Public speaking is one of the greatest fears that people commonly face. Our goal is to help our members embrace this fear and overcome it by not only teaching them but by providing them an environment where they feel welcomed and confident to practice and improve their skills. We believe that in learning how to speak in public, one acquires a multi-dimensional skillset such as assertiveness, planning skills, teamwork, leadership skills, and the self-confidence to cope with pressure when tackling challenges that one may come across, be it in public speaking or otherwise. We seek to encourage our members to use their creativity, take risks, accept challenges, open up and learn with like-minded people.
