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 have been a member of Forum for twelve years and I keep coming back due to the fact that I learn something at every single meeting. The diverse topics and styles of speaking, speech, lecture and improvisation, just to name a few, gives each meeting its uniqueness. I look forward to the feedback given to the speakers as we can all take something from it. The friendly and supportive nature of the meeting is what makes it so fun!   – Anna, Bayside Forum
