Live podcast ‘Speechless: stories that change the world’

Loading Events

On the 2nd of November we will be joined by Simon Bucknall & Maryam Pasha for a live version of their podcast ‘Speechless: stories that change the world.’ The podcast provides advice on how to tell stories whilst public speaking that will last a lifetime. Previous episodes of the podcast have discussed wedding speeches and how to moderate a discussion panel. This special live rendition of the podcast will discuss both Simon and Maryam’s lives in the public speaking world, and sharing tips along the way. 

We feel very privileged to have this podcast performed live here at the home of public speaking and we hope you can all join us for a night of enticing conversation. The conversation will be facilitated by a young ESU member, and there will be an opportunity to ask questions and chat with both Simon and Maryam. Tickets will begin at £5 for members and £7 for non-members. 

Guests are welcome to arrive from 6.30pm and the podcast will begin at 7pm. Guests are welcome to carry on networking and socialising after the podcast has ended in the members bar.
