Welcome to Ipswich Forum

Ipswich Forum members are a friendly, supportive group who  enjoy the intellectual stimulation of Forum meetings and the regular challenges each meeting provides, helping them to grow in confidence and be prepared to speak out and communicate in all areas of their life.

Members meet twice a month in the heart of Ipswich to practise public speaking and to learn how to run meetings effectively including roles and duties of office bearers – under experienced guidance.

If you would like to learn new skills, enhance your abilities and meet new people – you  are always welcome – age is no barrier.

What others are saying . . .

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
