Farnham Speakers Club


We had our very first hybrid meeting on Monday in our new venue in the Elstead Room at the Bush Hotel in Farnham - and it was a resounding success. We had 12 members online and 14 in the room. Our new President, Tom Bailey, was our Toastmaster of the evening - and it was actually his 21st birthday! What dedication - thank you Tom. Looking forward to seeing more members coming back to the room in due course 😊
Are you a school or community group? Would you like a talk about Sight for Surrey?

After a 'very good breakfast' Holiday Inn London - Shepperton (Callum likes his food!πŸ™‚πŸ₯πŸ₯šπŸ³) this morning Callum Russell gave a talk to the Shepperton Aurora rotary who gave a fantastic review!:

'Most of us take our sight for granted. It was truly inspirational to listen to Callum Russell at Shepperton Aurora Rotary Club this morning. A global traveller, Callum has been blind since birth and is a very amusing story-teller, especially of his tales in South America. Callum would make the perfect after dinner speaker.!'

We had such a great meeting on Monday and well done, Ann, on winning both the Best Evaluator and Best Table Topics. Patrick won Best Speaker with a very useful back-to-basics educational on creating the best club climate - thank you Patrick - good to be reminded of how to really serve our members.

Ann gave such a beautiful answer for her table topic - the question, from Simon, was 'if you had amnesia, what would you most like to forget'. I'm not going to tell you Ann's response right away - post a comment below and tell me what your answer would be. I will share what Ann said on Friday.😊


I'm really looking forward to getting back to regular Farnham Speakers meetings from next Monday. It's the best place to learn new skills - and of course, improve public speaking and confidence - plus have a lot of fun at the same time! If you haven't experienced a Toastmasters meeting, come along next Monday, 10th, and see how you can learn new skills. We run hybrid meetings so you can either join us in person at 7.30pm in the Elstead Room at the Bush Hotel or message me for Zoom details 😊

Congratulations to DM who was awarded his Level 4 certificate yesterday by Tom, our President. DM is working on the Leadership Development Pathway and now it's a race to the finish to see who will complete their first Pathway at Farnham Speakers!!! Well done, DM.

Tom was also presented with the President's Distinguished ribbon by Patrick, VPE, who also pinned Tom with his President's pin. No pressure, Tom, but Farnham wants another President's Distinguished ribbon this year!!


Thirteen of us had a lovely Christmas dinner at the Beefeater in Farnham this evening. Some of us really got into the festive spirit and got out Christmas jumpers to mark the occasion. We missed all who couldn't make it and hope to see you at our next meeting, the last of 2021, on Monday evening, 13th, at the Bush Hotel.

I was always confident in presenting to smaller groups at work. But I needed to learn how to deliver to a much larger audience at a conference.

Toastmasters taught me how to make eye contact with everyone in the room and how to project my voice.

I now am the first person people call to give a keynote speech.

Find the speaker in you. Come along to our next Toastmasters meeting.
