How to Win at Public Speaking Competitions

London, UK

A bit tongue-in-cheek this one. Earlier on, I won the "Table Topics" contest at my Toastmasters International speaking club, London Corinthians. For those of you familiar with Toastmasters, Table Topics is all about impromptu speaking. I had about 10 secs to make up my mind what I was going to speak about. Luckily for me, I'm quite quick of mind and thought and managed to beat the five other contestants. This means I go forward to represent London Corinthians at the next round.

How can you be a winner at public speaking?

1. Join a Toastmasters Club

2. Attend reguarly

3. Learn how to become expert at speaking "on-the-cuff"

4. Enter competitions.

Remember, you've got to be in it to win it!

Well, well, a fellow table topics winner! Congratulations! Of course, I've only ever been to one Toastmasters meeting, so my one ribbon will have to suffice, while you must have dozens!
