Welcome to Gambit’s Speaking Academy! This is a club/course dedicated to improving and practicing public speaking and other forms of communication (examples include debates, job interviews, casual conversation, asking someone on a date, any communication is acceptable). The main focus of the club/course is to discuss and practice skills relating to stage speaking, presentations, and talking to large groups in an attempt to alleviate the nervous tendencies, anxiety, and stress that comes with public speaking. My goal is to create a community in which everyone can grow together as strong and confident public speakers. Enjoy!

There are a few rules: Any topic is free game but if there is disagreement about a subject, talk about it outside of the club. I will moderate any debates if need be but not during an event. No matter what your speaking experience is, you are welcome here, but do not criticize others for being bad at speaking. That's why they are there. Have fun and be courteous. I will not hesitate to kick anyone who is disturbing a member's learning experience. Thank you!
