The bright, vibrant surroundings of Mintel's Head Office in central London played host to the 2nd heat of this year's Corporate Speaking Challenge.
Once again another 10 creative and accomplished speakers tackled the theme: 'Everything needs to change, so that everything can stay the same.'
And for a second week in a row, 4 experienced judges struggled to cut the numbers down to the 5 necessary to go through to the final on November 17th in Bloomsbury House in Holborn.
We are looking forward to another wonderful celebration of a standard of public speaking worthy of any professional business or boardroom.
The Chief Judge, Richard Perks, Director of Retail Research at Mintel said: 'Having to narrow down 10 excellent and varied presentations to a final 5 does not get any easier!'
Michael Ronayne, Director of College of Public Speaking, urges friend's family and members of the public to come along to the final on November 17th (starting at 7pm).
'Not much is free these days, and the opportunity to hear 10 accomplished, entertaining and thought-provoking speakers in beautiful surroundings will be well worth the experience.'
