A good speech should be like a woman’s skirt; long enough to cover the subject but short enough to keep it interesting.
― Winston S. Churchill
Winston Churchill is one of my favorite public speakers of all time. His eloquence just can’t be beaten. Neither can his humor. Many people don’t know this, but he actually won the Nobel Prize for Literature. He wasn’t an orator by profession, but he’s someone who proves the fact that public speaking and good communication is the cornerstone of success. Just ask all the people he had to keep motivated during World War ll.
Public speaking is a skill which will be invaluable to anyone, no matter the profession you choose. What better time to test yourself in front of an audience than at the Intra University Best Speaker Contest organized by the Gavel Club of University of Colombo?
Oration 2016 will give you the opportunity to go up against fellow undergraduates at UoC, and the Gavel Club has many plans in place to make sure that it’s an unforgettable experience for anyone who decides to take a chance.
Don’t know anything about public speaking? Don’t worry. We’ve organized a series of workshop before every stage so that you’ll have all the information at hand to make the best speech possible.
