What others are saying …
I first joined Forum to gain some confidence to do best man speech at my friend’s wedding, the thought of getting up at such a big event in front of 120 people terrified me. The skills I learnt and opportunities available to put knowledge into practice was invaluable and I feel much more comfortable getting up in front of an audience in all situations than I did previously. – Richard, Bayside Forum
I was introduced to Forum by an amazingly helpful member whose guidance and mentoring helped me quickly see the importance of both speaking with confidence and being able to run an effective meeting in my role then as Retirement Living Officer. Attaining and practising those skills meant that all avenues of my life changed and so many opportunities opened up. I am forever grateful to Forum for its inspirational leaders and members. – Elaine, Bayside Forum
