Female World Champion of Public Speaking

August 24, 2008

During my holiday in Calgary I had the opportunity to attend the Toastmasters International Convention where I witnessed two female speakers claim both first and third place in the competition.

This was very exciting as LaShunda Rundles from District 50 – Texas, was the first woman to win the competition in 20 years. Katherine Morrison who placed third is from District 31.

I hope having a female champion will inspire more women to participate in the competition and look at becoming a professional speaker as it is a very rewarding career.

Two world champion speakers

What happens when two world champions get together to answer questions on speaking?

Darren Lacroix and Vikhas Jhingran have both won the title of World Champion of public speaking and recently sat down together to answer a couple of questions about how to keep your material fresh and interesting and how to keep your stories tight.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.
