The College of Public Speaking Corporate Challenge 2010 was a major success on October 25th 2010 at the English-Speaking Union’s Headquarters in Mayfair. Ten finalists spoke to a one hundred strong audience on the theme of ‘Creating long term economic prosperity…’
Five independent judges, led by Rachel Elnaugh of Dragons’ Den fame were staggered by the quality of the speaking. Following a long deliberation the results were announced in reverse order: Third – George Anstey of Nera Consulting. Runner-up – Anthony Gell of The Business Voice. The 2010 Corporate Challenge Champion is Texan, Laura McCracken a consultant with Wrightson Wood, pictured with Rachel Elnaugh (centre).
Said Vince Stevenson, the Education Director of The College of Public Speaking, “Year on year, this contest grows and the standard improves. It has become one of the most popular speaking events in the UK in just three years. We are indebted to the English-Speaking Union for the use of their magnificent facilities and to our many friends and volunteers whose contributions make it such a special and unique event.”
