About Club 17

 We meet every Wednesday from early February to late November, the only exception being the Brisbane Show Day.  Ours is a particularly go-ahead club, with plenty of fresh ideas.  We aim to have fun and not take ourselves too seriously.

We pride ourselves on the excellent opportunities we provide for members to utilise modern visual aids.  The meeting room is equipped with a data projector, so many of our members take the opportunity to hone their skills with software packages such as PowerPoint and Prezi.  Members also have the opportunity to have their speeches recorded by video camera if they so wish.  Not everyone wants to do this, but for those who do, it provides a great opportunity to review ones speeches afterwards and identify those aspects which may have room for improvement.

Here are some testimonials from a few of our members:

...and here's a short introductory video which tells you a bit more about our club

Our club members cover a great range of ages, interests and speaking abilities.  Among our members are several for whom English is a second language, and we provide them with a great opportunity to improve their English speaking skills.  Some come along for the friendly social atmosphere and the opportunity to discuss ideas.  Others meanwhile attend because they want to gain speaking experience for their jobs.If you're interested in joining our group we suggest you first come to a couple of meetings as a visitor.  Then, if you like what you see, you simply fill in an application form.  There's a $70 joining fee, which covers the cost of your name badge and a couple of very handy publications.  Full members pay a half-yearly fee of $75, with generous concessions for students and members over 65.There is plenty of parking available.

Frontiers
Brisbane West Rostrum Club members enthusiastically follow the Launchpad series of graded speaking exercises.  If you join our club you too will have the opportunity to participate in this very comprehensive program.
