Joan Haig and Joan Lennon, authors of Talking History: 150 Years of Speakers and Speeches introduce you to famous people who changed the world, from Abraham Lincoln and Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti to Helen Keller and Greta Thunberg. What made them speak out, and how did they make their point? In this interactive workshop, you will learn about how the book came together and get some top tips on how to deliver a memorable speech!

I would LOVE to see you there! You can book your place here.
