INSPIRATIONAL SPEECH CONTEST

You don't know how powerful your message can be, until you share it!

All of us have a powerful thought or an idea; an idea that we believe in, an idea that if communicated well, can inspire millions to achieve excellence in life. You can contribute to building a better society by simply sharing your inspiring message. At SpeakINDIA we take pride in empowering expressions by discovering and promoting thought leaders.

Welcome to INSPIRE- SpeakINDIA’s Inspiring Speech Contest

INSPIRE is a public speaking contest where you present a short inspiring speech.  (Language:English)

What type of speech is the best for this contest?  

A speech that inspires people to achieve noble objectives, greater success or contribute to a higher goal. Inspiring speeches motivate an audience to improve personally, professionally, emotionally or spiritually. 

But you don't need to preach them, the best way to convey your message is by engaging your audience and sharing your message while entertaining them. Your personal stories can be the best source of powerful content for such speeches.

If you get through the semi-finals, you can choose to deliver the same speech or a different one at the final. 

Time limit: 4 to 6 mins

There will be a yellow signal on 5 mins and red signal on 6 mins. Ideally, you should end your speech at 6 mins, but you will still have 30 sec. grace period to conclude. Make sure that you wrap up and don't get to listen the bell. The bell means you have exceeded the time limit and therefore disqualified. 

It's suggested to prepare and practice your timings, as we normally take longer in delivering the actual speech than the timings in practice. 

Who will judge my performance?  

Your performance will be judged by an expert panel of anonymous judges from the field of public speaking and training. 

What are the criteria?  

Your speech will be judged on clarity of purpose, relevance of content, language, rapport with the audience and the overall delivery skills. In fact you can ask for the judges evaluation sheet when you nominate yourself.

  • The winner will receive a glittering trophy and an elegant certificate.
  • The winner's video will be uploaded on YouTube.
  • All the participants will receive a certificate of participation. 
  • Participants can buy their HD videos after the contest at a nominal price.

Evaluation Contest

The Evaluation Contest is an opportunity to demonstrate your analytical skills, feedback skills and of course your public speaking skills in a live show. The competitive format makes it all the more exciting as it pushes you to reach out to your ultimate public speaking talent. Your leadership act not only motivates the speaker but offers genuine help and guidance.

YOU SHINE AS A LEADER

Since giving feedback is a leadership quality, your participation helps you sharpen your critical thinking, analytical abilities, organizing skills and of course, your public speaking skills. 

HOW IT WORKS?

You watch a speaker deliver a short speech. While the speech is on, you take notes. After the speaker finishes, you are given a short break to organize your material. You are allowed to refer to your notes while presenting the evaluation. 

You are invited to present your evaluation as a short talk of 2 to 3 minutes (30 seconds as grace period is also given to help you wrap up comfortably within time limit) 

To understand how to deliver an effective evaluation, please click here 

HOW AM I JUDGED?  

Your performance is judged by a panel of 5 competent judges. The quality of your evaluation is determined by various factors:

  • Your analytical abilities.
  • How specific your comments are.
  • How helpful your suggestions are.
  • How encouraging and positive language you use.
  • The overall structure of your evaluation.

And since, you present your evaluation as a speech, the other factors like voice, mannerisms etc. also affect the final verdict.
