JCI UK: Public Speaking Academy

JCI UK’s Public Speaking Academy is all about helping delegates to take their speaking skills to the next level, no matter what the starting point.  Over two days, delegates will learn about:

  • Owning the stage – charisma, body language and connection with your audience
  • Storytelling – communicating your message and your values
  • Writing an impactful speech – structure, language and clarity
  • JCI competitions – tips for debating and extempore

Our trainers are experienced JCI members, senators and external experts.  Each with their own style and experiences, they will ensure a holistic learning environment to suit the different personalities, strengths and ambitions of our delegates.  There will be plenty of opportunities throughout the weekend for participants to practice and receive constructive feedback.  A supportive and fun atmosphere is guaranteed!

Following the success of last year’s event, we anticipate high demand for this academy.  Tickets are strictly limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.  Your booking is not confirmed until payment is received.

Early bird tickets are available for £150 for members/£230 for non-members, with a regular rate of £175 for members/£260 for non-members. The ticket includes:

  • Accommodation on the Saturday evening (on a twin sharing basis)
  • Lunch on Saturday
  • Breakfast and Lunch on Sunday

There is a £50 supplement if you’d like your own room.

If you have a disability or medical condition that requires special arrangements to be made, please notify us of your requirements when making your booking.
