Hi Jenny, Thank you for taking the time to read my paper and participate in the threaded discussion. The Association of Speakers Clubs is a UK-based organisation that assists persons (in general) to gain develop their public speaking skills in a friendly/supportive environment. Each member chooses the pace at which he/she progresses - there is never any pressure to undertaken any role/task against your will. The majority of the people who attend are non-stutterers. That's not surprising because public speaking has been shown to be the No 1 fear - rated even higher than dying. :-) Those who attend are drawn from varying age groups and walks of life. Some wish to improve their presentational skills for use at work or college etc, while others may wish to prepare for a wedding speech, vote thanks or debate. Being able to speak in public can give you so much confidence and enhance your social skills and personal development.I was able to transfer the gains that I made at the ASC into everyday life. I thoroughly recommend it to anyone who is seeking a positive speaking experience. Toastmasters International is similar public speaking organisation that is found in many parts of the world, including the UK and the USA. I hope you find this information of assistance. Kindest regards Alan
