Hoopla Speakers Club
Introducing the new approach to public speaking which will help you overcome your public speaking fear forever, so you can show the world who you really are.

Why Choose Hoopla Speakers Club?
Massive amounts of fun
Every workshop is experiential, energetic and delivered with dollops of personality by an expert trainer. We create an environment that youll love to return to every week, so that your association with public speaking is not terror but joy.
We get lasting results
Public speaking isnt one of those things you can get better at by reading a book. You need to be doing it. You need to practice and you need a great coach to guide you in that practice. Thats what we provide.
But where we really stand out is in the structure of the learning: 6 workshops spread over 6 consecutive weeks. This is important because the number of repetitions youll do and the spread of the learning makes it more likely that the learning sticks.
Most other public speaking courses are 1 day long. Why? Because it suits the trainer! But it doesnt work: there are no magic bullet solutions. Thats why we do things differently. A good analogy is the gym: if you go to one gym class you leave sweaty but no fitter. But if you go to six gym classes thats when you see demonstrable results. No wishful thinking, no BS: we do things properly.
Meet the most interesting people in London
At our courses youll meet fascinating people and grow your network. Hoopla isnt just a training company, it is a social circle. Youll brush shoulders with start-up founders, pioneering technologists and inspiring thought leaders to name just a few. We believe that who you learn with is as important as what you learn, and on this course you wont just leave with more confidence: youll make new friends too.
Amazing value for money
Our courses are priced so that they are accessible to everyone. We want to meet the most passionate, interesting people in London. Not just the richest.
