The Speakeasy Club came into my life exactly when I needed it. Camilla and Sarah create a warm, empathetic and encouraging environment from the off. I still remember the endorphins I felt when finishing the course. I would encourage anyone who needs help with their presenting skills or even a confidence boost in addressing a room to join The Speakeasy Club.

Being able to competently address a crowd is of paramount importance to my career. After working with Sarah and Camilla, both my confidence and my competence levels have increased. If I had let fear take over and stop me, I wouldn’t be the person I am today.
