2015 World Championship of Public Speaking Winning Speech

Toastmasters, you might be interested in reading this article in Business Insider, “Here’s a breakdown of the speech that won the 2015 World Championship of Public Speaking” by Richard Feloni. The article analyzes Mohammed Qahtani’s winning speech, “The Power of Words,” which beat out 33,000 other speeches over 6 months of competition.

Here are a few tips from the article. For more information about each one, go ahead and read the article, which also includes an interview with Qahtani.

  • He immediately gets the audience on his side
  • He doesn’t lose sight of his message
  • He makes it personal
  • He uses his strengths to overcome his weaknesses
  • He ends on a hopeful note

Many thanks to Henry for sharing this article. I look forward to seeing everyone at tonight’s meeting at 5:15pm at 105 East 17th Street, room 191!
