Welcome to Speakers Trust!

We are the UK’s leading public speaking training charity

Proudly celebrating over 250,000 people trained

At Speakers Trust we take a huge amount of pride in our work with the education, not-for-profit and community sectors. Our vision is a society where everybody has the skills, confidence and desire to speak in public. Our mission is to promote the lifetime benefits of effective public speaking.

Our training is designed to build confidence – enabling adults and young people from all backgrounds to speak with clarity, conviction and impact. We help everyone who takes part in our training to become better communicators, with a greater awareness of the importance of speaking out. This improves education and employment prospects as well as the desire to use the power of their voice to bring positive change.

We’ve reached more than a quarter of a million people to date and worked with more than 1,000 schools, colleges and charities throughout the UK. We look forward to celebrating the next quarter of a million.
