26th July 2015 – 10:30am – 15:00pm at Badger’s Farm Community Centre, SO22 4QB
Over a year has passed since Hamwic Speakers hosted the highly successful comedy improvisation workshops in Southampton and they felt it was timely to invite Area Toastmasters to an innovative two part Stand-up Comedy and Table Topics workshop on Sunday 26th July at Badger’s Farm, Winchester (the Community Centre is adjacent to Sainsbury’s and parking is free for attendees).
The tips and techniques from both sessions will help build confidence in impromptu speaking and humorous speeches and should seriously boost the communication and leadership skills of members and guests.
For anyone that would like to add more humour to their speeches and for any members that are considering entering the annual Humorous Speech and Table Topics contest in September, this is the perfect workshop.
We are delighted to have Gavin Meikle from Solent Speakers coming along to deliver the Table Topics session.
Gavin is an enthusiastic and inspirational trainer who will share practical tips, involve us all in exercises and deliver oodles of fun.
Jill has trained some of the UK’s top comedians including Shappi Khorsandi, Sean Walsh and Jimmy Carr and she ranks as the UK’s leading Stand Up Comedy Coach.
Her stand-up comedy classes received a special mention from Ofsted, at London’s City Lit. and she was the BBC’s chosen Comedy Coach in the South for their “Comic Relief” project. For more information about Jill, click here.
This promises to be an event to remember.
Tickets must be pre-paid and thanks to a generous Hamwic subsidy, offer excellent value at £20 each. The cost covers both workshop sessions and a snack lunch.
