Public Speaking Competitions

We support the Annual Sheriffs’ Challenge. It was started by Liveryman Peter Estlin, to give students in London schools a chance to hone their public speaking skills by delivering a team-work presentation, competitively, on a topic relating to the City of London or the business/wider world.  More information can be found here.

2019 was the third year in which the Challenge had been a feature of the Livery Year and was the first year in which it had been organised by the Worshipful Company of Educators.

The Worshipful Company of Educators have been organising a Public Speaking Competition since 2010.  There was no Competition in 2020, but a successful on-line, Zoom, competition was arranged in June 2021.
