Welcome to Bremer Forum

Bremer Forum is a friendly, supportive group that meets twice a month in the Ipswich area.  The aim of our meetings is to improve confidence and communication skills.  Members learn and practise public speaking, how meetings run, the roles and duties of office bearers and workshop facilitation.  Feel free to contact us if you would like to learn new skills, enhance your abilities and meet new people.  Visitors are always welcome.

What others are saying …

I joined Forum because I had things to say, but not necessarily the best way of saying them. Thanks to Forum, the words now have less rough edges.   – Rod, Bremer Forum

I joined Forum to cope with the media fallout when my first book was published. Just as well! Book launches, speaking engagements, live radio chats and television interviews pushed me way out of my comfort zone. My latest book was a finalist in the Queensland Literary Awards and saw me curating an exhibition for the State Library of Queensland. Almost daily, at times, I was doing lectures, curator’s tours, promotional videos, and interviews with print journalists and radio and television presenters. Thank God for Forum! Truth be told, I got what I needed from Forum years ago. I’m still here more than a decade later because I want to keep challenging my mind, stay sharp, and because I love my Forum buddies.  – Toni, Bremer Forum
