The World Championship of Public Speaking® starts in Toastmasters clubs across the globe. From there, participants advance to Area, Division, District, and region-level competitions. Two winners from each region-level competition move on to the semifinals. At the semifinals, an expert panel of experienced Toastmasters will determine the eight finalists. Each speech will last between five to seven minutes.

For many amateur speakers, this competition is the opportunity of a lifetime. Past winners have used this accolade to become prominent paid speakers, delivering keynotes and speeches around the globe.
