The annual competion was more popular than ever this year and attracted a surprisingly high standard of entrants who gave a three minute prepared speeech on the subject of 'Adversity' . Fifty speakers then went through to the second preliminary round where they gave impromptu speeches on a range of different topics.

Twelve entrants then fought it out in the semi-finals with further three minute impromtu speeches before six finalists were selected to go through to the finals of the competition which will be held on Saturday June 23th at Sunway University. The finals of the public speaking competition will take place at the same time as the Oxford & Cambridge Society Malaysia/Sunway University essay writing competition.
