A safe space to speak
Our members come from many different professions, backgrounds, and countries, but we all want to become better public speakers: that’s what brings us together. We’re a multi-lingual group and the primary language we use is English, although speakers are also welcome to present in German.
We meet every second week at XXX.
How to join us
- Register to say you’re coming so that we know you’re coming…
- Show up on the day – if you don’t show up, you can’t build your skills!
- Commit to becoming a better speaker by becoming a regular member.

What does it cost?
We have made this a donation-based club because we strongly believe that it should be open to anyone: if for any reason you want to join, but can’t afford to contribute, you are still very welcome.
We hope that members who find value in being part of Speakeasy Tirol will contribute if they can.

Who runs Speakeasy Tirol?
Speakeasy Tirol is the brainchild of Suzanne Whitby, a communication specialist, facilitator, and storyteller who works with international businesses, scientists and researchers, and sustainability organisations to help them become better communicators. She runs international communication agency, Whitby’s, and SciComm Success, a communication training firm for scientists.
She believes that great communication can change lives, and with that in mind, she created Speakeasy Tirol to be a safe space for individuals to come together and develop the skills they need to become effective speakers and active listeners.
