Online Presenters will hold its webinar contest on Monday, and you’re invited to join us to see how it works.
This is not an official Toastmasters contest, but it is an opportunity for our members to test skills specific to delivering an online speech or presentation. The winner from our contest will go on to compete against winners from other clubs at EVV CON: Elevate the Value of Virtual on April 23. EVV CON is not an official Toastmasters event, but it is supported by volunteers from multiple online clubs.
How the Webinar Contest is Different
In addition to being conducted online, the webinar contest tests skills specific to engaging with the audience in the online medium — maximizing the advantages and overcoming the disadvantages of online speaking (more detail here).
The contest format has changed several times since OP hosted the first one in 2018, settling on a 5-7 minute format for this year’s event. Some of the winning speeches from past OP webinar contest included below are longer or shorter, depending on the rules in effect that year.
