The Toastmasters Podcast with Bo Bennett, Ryan Levesque, and Greg GazinThe Toastmasters Podcast is like a radio talkshow featuring interviews with Toastmasters usually featured in the Toastmaster magazine. But unlike a radio show, a podcast is on the Internet, and available, for free, to anyone in the world with an Internet connection, and a connected device capable of playing audio.
[25:57] Meet Verity Price, the 2021 World Champion of Public Speaking. Hailing from Cape Town, South Africa, Verity is the first Toastmasters World Champion to emerge from the world's second largest continent, and the sixth female to hold the title. Verity's winning speech, "A Good Read," tells the story of how coming across a letter from her late father during a dark period inspired her to "write a different story" with her life.
Verity shares insights with Greg and Ryan related to delivering in a virtual environment, how she incorporated global feedback to prepare her speech, and the psychological principles that underpin the content of her speech.
Verity also shares about her background as a singer, songwriter and actress—including how she inadvertently became a crowdfunding pioneer.
