Here’s what some of our members and guests had to say

Joined SoC in Feb 2014. Meetings are always exciting and encouraging, especially if you desire to be an effective communicator. I’m always on the look out for new, inspiring insights so that I can become the best possible me.


Really friendly, welcoming and supportive. In just a few months I’ve developed a lot more confidence in public speaking and always look forward to the meetings


Was so inspired by the speakers on my visit that I decided to join straight away


What a fabulous, energizing and supportive group! Thoroughly enjoyed my first visit. It certainly won’t be my last. Very well organised and a lovely bunch of people. So glad I came across this group and that I made the effort to attend.
