Runner-up - World Champion of Public Speaking

Congratulations to our fellow countryman, Mr K Loghandran, DTM. He has made us proud as the first ever Malaysian to achieve a runner-up position in the just–concluded World Champion of Public Speaking in conjunction with Toastmaster International Convention in Calgary, Canada.

Mr K Loghandran, our Distinguished Toasmaster, a motivational speaker, director, stage actor, and stage comedian flown to Calgary with an ambition to make it big in this international arena for the second time. (The first time he competed in this World Champion was exactly 10 years ago, in 1998.) “We think you are fantastic and an inspiration. This will definitely motivate the rest of our members to strive on in their toastmaster journey.” says Speakers’ Dream Toastmaster President, Miss Chow Mun Yuen.

World Champion of Public Speaking is held annually during Toastmaster International Convention, where 30 speakers from their respective areas gathered to give their 5-minute prepared speech. 20 contestants from non-American countries will have to compete in a preliminary round on the pre-conference sessions a few days before the final. 2 of the contestants will be selected to join the remaining 10 contestants from America in the final. The winner will be declared the World Champion of Public Speaking.
