Corporate Challenge Background

The College of Public Speaking’s Corporate Challenge is a speaking competition open to anyone who is looking to showcase their business public speaking skills in front of an audience and a judging panel.

Popular TV programs like The Apprentice and The Dragons' Den underline the need for excellent communication skills. How many times have prospective entrepreneurs faltered at the first hurdle of their sales pitch? We know that these problems can be resolved with supportive guidance, structure and practice.

Last year’s 2015 Corporate Speaking Challenge was won by Stephen Edun . The theme was ‘Everything needs to change, so that everything can stay the same’.
Stephen delivered a speech that was clear, memorable and presented in a strong but natural style, thoroughly covering the topic in a humorous and engaging way.

This year we are delighted to announce the 7th year of the Corporate Speaking Challenge, this year’s Corporate Speaking Challenge topic is ’It is not about what happens, but how you respond’.
