Our Committee – 2023/24

Paul Graham – President


Awaiting bio.



John Duller – Secretary

I joined Speak Easy in 2014 after going along to a couple of meetings. Like a lot of members, I wish I had joined years before. I had a speech to do in Germany, which I agreed to do but was beginning to wish I hadn’t. Speak Easy helped me deliver a successful speech and I’ve been hooked ever since. Public speaking is useful in all areas of life, not just at work. Our meetings provide a safe environment to practice public speaking, to help others develop and be entertained by some great speeches. https://vimeo.com/332913999/6b7f17bd53

Ann Nunn – Treasurer

I joined Speak Easy at Martlesham in 2005. From day one I was made to feel very welcome and within a few weeks I was on the committee! I’ve worked my way through various committee roles, my current role is Treasurer. I’ve made many friends and have received and given support and encouragement to members throughout. Every meeting has the ingredients of fun and friendship. I’ve been an Area Director and Division Director for Toastmasters International. In 2010 I gained my Distinguished Toastmaster Award (DTM), the highest TI award. I stay in this world-wide organisation because I cannot imagine life without it.

Colin Magnus Ross – Vice President Education (& Immediate Past President)

I joined Speak Easy Martlesham when I realised that I had been focusing too much on my job and had no friends or social life. With Toastmasters you meet a friendly, interesting and diverse group of people and develop your presentation skills with positive feedback and encouragement. Professionally, it has helped me be more confident and outgoing. This has been noticed by my Managers and I have a renewed energy for my job and I have made interesting new friends.

Sonya Burrows – Vice President Membership

I originally joined Speak Easy at Martlesham in order to practice speaking in front of an audience and help reduce my nerves, as I had started being asked to give talks on plants and garden related subjects to groups in the local area. Speak Easy has delivered on both aims! I continue to be a member not only for the educational value and speaking practice it provides but also the opportunity to share experience gained with other members and because it is such an enjoyable, friendly and supportive club.

Adam Green – Vice President Public Relations (VPPR)

I joined Speak Easy Martlesham in 2018, to help me improve my public speaking skills for my career, voluntary roles and hobbies and interests. Speak Easy provides a supportive and friendly environment to progress, and has quickly opened up new opportunities for me that I hadn’t expected. Whether you’re clear on how you want to improve, or want to try something new and see where it takes you, you will find Speak Easy and Toastmasters International both fun and helpful!
