Speech Masters is hosting the premier screening in France of the feature length documentary film - SPEAK. This remarkable documentary follows six unforgettable characters overcoming life’s hurdles as they prepare and compete in the World Championship of Public Speaking. Funny, inspiring, moving and utterly absorbing, SPEAK tells the story of hope, perseverance and transformation — a story everyone can relate to.
Filmmaker Paul Galichia (and co-director/producer Brian Weidling) conducted hundreds of interviews about public speaking anxiety and captured every stage of the tense highly competitive 2008 World Championships of Public Speaking, won by one of the most compelling Finals speeches ever. (Coincidentally, Bob Mohl was at the Championships in Calgary, competing in the Semifinals, but he didn't make it into the film because he didn't make it into the Finals. Darn it!)
Following the screening, World Champion LaShunda Rundles and filmmaker Paul Galichia will lead a Q&A discussion.
