About World Speech Day (Singapore)
World Speech Day was inaugurated by Simon Gibson, a UK based professional speechwriter in 2016. He had a dream to designate a day for the world to celebrate the power of speeches to change the world into a better place to live in. World Speech Day Singapore was conceptualized through a chance encounter between Mr. Gibson and Dr. Ernest Chen, an author, communicator and public speaker, at an International Speech Writing Conference in the UK around 2014/2015. In early January 2016, a group of public speaking advocates along with Dr. Chen dedicated to bringing this colossal event into our local shores, making Singapore the first in Asia to take part in World Speech Day.
Since March 2016, we have conducted the speech event over 12 hours and brought in over 60 speakers comprising individuals from all walks of life and organizations to share their thoughts for a better world. ❤
