COGUK 5-Minute Key Speaking Skills Survey

Public Speaking Survey for Community Representatives

The ability to communicate confidently and clearly is essential in any role that involves representing the community.

You may already have experience in public speaking within your community role.

For example: You may have to put your views on:

Local Council Committee or Neighbourhood watch panel, or liaise with professionals and other representatives as a Patient champion or Community champion.

Completing our quick survey will help us to gauge the feelings of community representatives around public speaking and identify areas where they could benefit from training in these essential skills.

The information you provide will be used to shape and refine key speaker skills training for those involved in community representation.
