North Avon Speakers Club is a non-profit organization that helps its members improve not only their public speaking ability, but also their critical thinking, analytical ability, listening, leading, and mentoring skills.

The club chartered with Toastmasters in 1992 following the hard work of Dave Hobson and Adrian Young.

Aim and Achievements

Our main aim is to support all our members in developing their public speaking skills, whether they have ambitions of becoming a strong communicator of ideas, an entertainer, a great political orator or (for most of us) just overcoming the fear of speaking to an audience.

We have a great history of members competing at the Toastmaster speaking competitions, and have a record of achievement in these events that we are very proud of, with members winning the national finals and even representing the whole of the UK at international level in the USA. Our club continues an exceptional record of achievement and enjoys a reputation for the professionalism originally instigated when Dave and Adrian first formed it.
