Welcome to Public Speakers Sligo Club

Do you have a fear of speaking in public?

Do you want to overcome that fear?Fear Of Public Speaking

Then you will find that Public Speakers Sligo will be just the solution for you!

Most people have a fear of speaking in public, and do absolutely nothing about it. Public Speakers Sligo offers you a chance to step up and face that fear. Almost everyone here at Public Speakers Sligo once had that same a fear. Some of us have now overcome it and are at different stages on their journeys, thanks to the supportive friendly and social environment here at the club.

Public Speakers Sligo is part of Toastmasters International; an organisation dedicated to improving people’s public speaking skills and dispelling those nerves everyone experiences as a public speaker.

All change

We have changed our club name to Public Speakers Sligo. We feel that this name very clearly promotes what our club is about.  So we say a fond farewell to Innisfree Toastmasters and a warm welcome to Public Speakers Sligo – PSS for short. We are still part of Toastmasters International which is a non-profit organisation dedicated to helping people become better communicators and leaders.  If you want to know more about our club and how it can help you why not come along to one of our meetings. We meet on the first and third Wednesday of each month at 8pm in the Sligo Park Hotel.


Until next time…

Our meetings have resumed for 2019 in the beautifully refurbished Sligo Park Hotel.
