Next in our Customer Spotlight series we find out more about Speakers Trust.
Who are Speakers Trust?
Speakers Trust believe everybody should have the skills, confidence and desire to speak in public, and are dedicated to helping people of all ages and levels achieve this.
They are a registered charity, and work in partnership with the not-for-profit and social enterprise sectors – from prisons to schools, charities and community groups.
They have already trained over 200,000 people and worked with over 1,000 schools and voluntary organisations throughout the UK.
We asked Jean Gamester, Chief Executive Officer at Speakers Trust ‘If you could make one real difference in society, what would it be?’ Here’s her response:
“It would be that when people had really important things inside them, that it wasn’t confidence that would stop them from getting that information out. So that confidence stops being a barrier for people and they can just achieve what they want to achieve.”
