Thanet Speakers Club has a New Club President

Thanet Speakers Club has a new club President.  Doug Weale who has been a member of the club for ten years has been elected to the position which will last for one year.  

Doug said, ’I spent a successful career in one of the most difficult sales environments…life insurance where my very livelihood was dependant on speaking.  It wasn’t until I retired that I became aware of Speaking Clubs and specifically Thanet Speakers Club.   And what pleasure I have found! Making up speeches, listening to others speaking, invitations to speak at functions, the supreme pleasure -speaking to entertain.’

He added, ‘I have many goals in my Presidential Year.  I want to see all members in the club to be challenged in the art of public speaking and I also want them to reach their potential.  I also would like to see our membership to grow and I have great hope for this.’

Thanet Speakers Club Meetings are held fortnightly on Thursday evenings at the Royal Temple Yacht Club, Ramsgate at 8.00 p.m.  For further details contact Ian Lockyer (Thanet Speakers Club Publicity Officer) on 01843 592785 or 07775815500 or via email at Further details can be found on our website
