Congratulations Verity

Newest World Champion Public Speaker – Verity Price

From Forbes:  “If your life is not going the way you want, you need to write a different story,” is the advice of Verity Price, the newly crowned public speaking world champion.

With an inspiring speech titled, “A Great Read,” Verity Price, a 46-year-old professional speaker and facilitator from Cape Town, South Africa, won the Toastmasters World Championship of Public Speaking on Saturday, Aug. 28.”

I eagerly watched her as she gave her final speech in the International Speaking Contest and I too felt it was a winning speech.  My sister agreed and we hoped that she would come out as the newest Champion.

There were a number of great speeches throughout the contest and I was certainly glad I was not one of the judges.  The second and third place winners also presented wonderful speeches.
