5 Favorite Big Stage Speeches #1

By Brian Woolf
January 14, 2022

The easiest way to improve your speaking is to study those further ahead on Speech Mountain. And the easiest way to do that - free - is to visit YouTube...

Below are five of my favorite speeches from the final round ("The Big Stage") Of Toastmasters annual World Championship of Public Speaking® (WCPS). Three highlights are noted. You will readily identify others. Do build a collection of your own favorite speeches and speakers; their skills and style are those you will likely adopt.

If interested in learning of other favorites of mine, see the other speakers in this website section and in my books The Speaker's Toolbox and The Speaker's Blueprint.
