Welcome to Oxford International Advanced online club

Have you been looking to level up?

Whilst it’s great to pay it forward and mentor others, some of you may also be looking for a way to stretch your speaking muscles even further and beyond your own club but don’t really fancy doing more District roles (or perhaps you can’t give the time needed).

If that’s the case you might be interested in Oxford International Advanced online club. They meet every 2nd and 4th Thursday 18:20-20:30 BST on Zoom. They organise themselves on Easy Speak so it’s easy to sign up if you want to come along.

Book on to the Easy Speak agenda

Membership criteria is to have completed Level 3 in a path or the Competent Communicator manual as a minimum. But they especially hope to attract DTMs who wish to deliver longer more challenging speeches/ keynotes/ workshops etc and members who want to hear from professionals on how to use their skills to make money as a professional speaker.

We will also not be running standard club meetings and we will be offering additional training depending on the needs of the members. There is no requirement to be a dual member as with some other advanced clubs, but you can be if you want to be.
