Our Next Meetings

Coronavirus Covid-19 Update

Due to the current coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic, we have taken the decision to cancel all face-to-face meetings until at least July 2020.

However, we appreciate that for a number of our members, learning the art of public speaking is only part of the reason why they attend. The social, and community, element of West Kent Speakers’ Club is hugely important and not something that we want to lose during this uncertain period.

Therefore we will be exploring online meetings, using technology such as Zoom, to continue to bring people together.

In the meantime, stay safe and we look forward to seeing you in more certain times.

Advanced Diary Dates

Keep these dates in mind for WKSC, Area & National events happening in the coming months.
