Speaker Slam™️ is North America's Largest Inspirational Speaking Competition, where the skill of public speaking meets the thrill of competition.
Our Inspirational Speaking Competition features competitors going head to head and heart to heart, to deliver inspirational speeches based on a monthly theme with a chance of winning prizes valued up to $5000.
Our speakers have gone on to get paid speaking gigs, TEDx talks and online notoriety. In addition we run the Emerging Speakers training program - educating and empowering our students to make impact with speaking.
Who Competes at Speaker Slam?
The beautiful thing about Speaker Slam is that the story is the great equalizer. We have had professional speakers, and first time speakers going head to head. We’ve had toastmasters, corporate speakers, entrepreneurs, and professionals as well as students and housewives, all throwing their hat in and tackling the theme of the month. The one thing all of our speakers have in common is that they are heart centred and looking to make impact with their voice.
Meet Dan and Rina - Who Are We?
Hi, we are Dan and Rina, the co-founders of Speaker Slam. We met 6 years ago at a local speaking group. We became instant friends with a shared passion for personal development, jerk chicken and taking centre stage!
The truth is, we laughed louder than anyone else in the room and we wanted to hang out and dream big. We wanted to create something MAGICAL that would shake the world up and really make an Impact.
We created Speaker Slam so that we could provide a platform for people to share vulnerably and be seen and heard. We watched as our speakers had healing and cathartic experiences.
We saw their speeches explode and get massive views and make a difference to so many people! We saw them leveraging their success to build movements and momentum.
We created the Emerging Speakers training program so that we could help speakers everywhere get clear on their message and create viral worthy speeches. And now, we’ve taken this competition online and made it possible for speakers throughout North America to compete.
We are excited to be a part of your journey. Join us and our incredibly supportive, heart-centred community. It’s time for YOU to shine!
Our Current Theme
A catalyst can be understood as a person or thing that brings about a result. For a fire to start, there must be a spark.
Put this theme under a microscope and reflect over your life. What specific incidents occurred that brought about profound change? What person made an incredible impact? What experience shifted the entire trajectory of your life?
Perhaps you and your leadership have been a catalyst for positive change or created life changing opportunities for others? Or maybe that’s your life’s intention?
If you want change to happen, it must start somewhere. There will be no spontaneous combustion. If you want change to happen, you must catalyze action. You must strike the match, you must take the first step.
If you feel you have no speech to share, then take this opportunity to create a speech worthy moment in your life.
Let’s start 2022 on a powerful note. Share your 4 minute speech on Catalyst and inspire the world. Speeches are due March 18th with the final competition taking place March 23rd.
