Sayara Beg

The Data Science Speakers club has five O.R.Society sponsored membership spaces remaining before we reach a total of 20 founding members of the first Data Science Speakers Club to formally charter with Toastmasters International.

If you want to go down in history, as one of the 20 founding members of the first ever Data Science Speakers club then this is your chance now.

The Data Science Speakers club has been formed to help specialists who need to master the art of delivering technical presentations to both non-technical audiences and technical audiences. This could be anything from delivering a technical proposal to secure funding, explaining technical detail (of a fault to be fixed or a opportunity to be exploited) to a non-technical audience from whom approval to proceed is needed.

You may be in anyone of these careers:

* Psychologist
* Physicist
* Biologist
* Chemist
* Statistician
* Data Engineer
* Computer Scientist
* Entrepreneur
* Innovator
* Financial Analyst

and so on.......

If you are on of the above, or similar and need to frequently deliver technical information and present data in a way that must be immediately understood, then this club is for you.

The Data Science Speakers club is specifically for people like you, like above, to practice communication and leadership skills in a safe and constructive environment, in order to find that unique style unique and apply in the professional environment.

Join now and be one of the 20 founding members of the first ever Data Science Speakers Club.

Simply fill out the contact details of this membership form, and sign the second page (ignore the financial bit, we do that for you) and hand it to the VPM at the next club meeting or email the scanned version of the form and confirmation of a transfer £60* to the Data Science Speakers Club account using these details: and a new members pack will be given you to get you started with your speaking and leadership roles at the next club meeting.

The Club meets near Old Street, in the Crypt of St Johns Church of Hoxton on Pitfield Street, N1 every Monday fortnight from 18:30 - 20:30, and the next meeting is on 7th December.

*The subscription is £10 per month (£4 subs to Toastmasters Headquarters, £5 room hire fee for two meetings per month, £1 exchange rate/commission charges as payments are made in $ to Toastmasters International). Founding members will not have to pay the new members joining fee of £15, as this has been paid for by The O. R. Society.
