World Championship of Public Speaking: Part 1

177

Each year, Toastmasters International hosts the World Championship of Public Speaking. After months of regional elimination rounds, 30,000 international competitors are whittled down to nine finalists – the best public speakers in the world.

In this special two-part documentary, PODIUM follows all nine finalists as they prepare to compete for the title and the glory. Who will be crowned a champion? Watch and see…

Part 1 introduces the finalists, high off their semi-final victories, and follows them through 24 nerve-wracking hours of re-writes, self doubt, practice sessions, and last minute preparations for the biggest stage of their lives.

Part 2 takes you inside the packed Toastmasters hall for the intense final round of competition. After a year of tireless preparations, this is the moment the finalists have been waiting for. Nine electrifying speeches, intimate backstage moments, and the crowning of a new World Champion of Public Speaking.
