Newsflash – JCI UK launches Public Speaking Academy

On 10th to 11th May 2014 JCI UK members can experience the latest in our amazing line up of academies – the inaugural JCI UK Public Speaking Academy.

Why did we decide to launch this academy?

Throughout the year JCI UK hosts fantastic flagship academies and events designed to equip our members with life skills to make them effective JCI members, leaders and active citizens.

  • February – Marketing Academy
  • August – LEAP Leadership Academy
  • November – National Convention (Business, Competitions and Celebrations)

Ask many members (myself included) what they have gained from JCI and confidence in public speaking will be high on the list.  Every year members have the opportunity to hone their public speaking skills by attending training courses, presenting at local events and competing in local, national and international competitions.  The opportunity to develop in this area, which so many people find extremely daunting, in a safe and supportive environment with other members from chambers all around the country is priceless.

To be held in May, the public speaking academy will complete our suite of outstanding national personal development events.

What can delegates expect?

Two days filled with tips and tricks on becoming a truly impactful public speaker.  Themes include structure and language, owning the stage and storytelling.  All of these learning points will be helpful for those aiming to take part in any of the JCI speaking competitions (public speaking, debating and extempore).  And of course there will be lots of opportunity to practice!

Our trainers include professional experts who coach public speaking for a living, a JCI public speaking champion and members who have been through their own public speaking development journey thanks to JCI.  More details will be announced soon!

Where and how much?

 We are privileged to once again have use of the fantastic facilities at BPP in Birmingham.

The cost of the academy is just £59 for members, which includes all training, training materials and lunch on both days.  You can book here:
