It’s official – We’re a ‘Distinguished Club’ again…
Standard of excellence
Tunbridge Wells Speakers’ Club is delighted to have once again been awarded ‘Distinguished Club’ status again by Toastmasters International. This standard of excellence, awarded annually, is an accolade only handed to clubs which have seen measurable success in five out of 10 goals focussing primarily on what are regarded as the two most important areas of achievement for any club – educational awards and membership growth.
Recognition of commitment
“The award is a recognition of our commitment to providing a supportive environment, where each member can achieve their public-speaking and leadership development goals at a pace of their own choosing, ” said Katy, Tunbridge Wells Speakers Club Chairman. “We are able to do this by helping them to access Toastmasters International’s educational pathways, offering support and encouragement as we guide them through this process, which involves preparing and delivering speeches covering a wide variety of subject matters.”
Quality educational provision
“The ‘Distinguished Club’ award also recognises our excellent reputation within the local community of Tunbridge Wells, where we are known to be friendly and welcoming to prospective new members,” said Islay O’Hara Vice President PR.
Chris Murphy, Vice President Education added, “The high standard of speakers and evaluations within the club can be daunting at first for newcomers, but we are all here to learn from those who are a little further along on their speaking journey and, as a club, we are proud now also to be able to offer quality educational provision by way of our Speechcraft programme, wherein those new to public-speaking can be mentored by some of our more experienced members.”
