What’s World speech day?

Good question. World Speech Day started in 2015 in 30 coutries and has grwon to almost 1,000 events in over 100. THis, year, its coming to New Zealand. Anyone can organise an event – anyone can give a speech; the theme is “Using the simple power of speech to share ideas”. Google “World Speech Day” or visit www.worldspeechday.com for more details. The Resources pages show how to set up an event.


World Speech Day runs each year on March 15. This year, that is a Sunday so the “Day” includes March 16 as well.

what is Toastmasters doing?

Anyone can organise an event and District 112 encourages you to do this. They are public events – you don’t have to be a Toastmaster to speak. However, while an event can be supported by Disrict, it needs to be organised by a club. As you see below, events can be anywhere, and because they promote Toastmasters, please talk to your Club Growth Director ([email protected]) about funding if you need it.

Remember – your event may help others complete awards. It could also be a dubject for your High Performance Leadership (HPL) project!
