The most awaited speech conquest is here…..It’s the time for the excited audience to cheer for the next biggest speech conquest which will be commenced soon. The stage is set for the orators to illuminate and boom with their exceptional talents. It’s “ORATION 2017”!
“Oration 2017”, the Annual Intra University Best speaker competition, is one of the flagship events of the Gavel Club of University of Colombo. It is organized to enhance the communication skills and leadership skills among our undergraduates. It will unravel the hidden talents of the upcoming young public speakers, while encouraging them to strive towards their goals.
When we turn on the television, we see people speaking before crowds or handling reporters with confidence and it all looks effortless. Are they made or are they born? They may not be orators by profession, but they have proved the fact that they are competent communicators who have the ability to convince a message effectively to an audience.
Martin Luther King’s “I have a dream” speech inspired a nation and broke down racial barriers. Without his leadership and inspiration it may have taken many more years to bring equality to all races. Therefore, Public speaking is a skill that is valuable to all of us no matter what profession we engage in.
Don’t worry if you still don’t have any idea of what public speaking is as we’ve organized a series of workshops before you go on stage. Therefore, you’ll have all the information at your hand to make your speech the best speech.
UOC undergraduates will indeed carry memories for a lifetime from this year’s competition.
Who will be crowned as “The Best Speaker of the Year”? It is time to make your dreams come true.
