PEER 1 Hosting teams up with UK Speechwriters’ Guild to find UK Business Speaker of the Year

PEER 1 Hosting UK Business Speaker of the Year

The UK needs motivating like never before and we know the inspirational speaking talent is out there to do it, we just need to find it.

PEER 1 Hosting, the global IT hosting provider, is inviting aspiring inspirational speakers to battle it out for the title of UK Business Speaker of the Year, offering three winners their share of £5,000 worth of prizes.

The UK Speechwriters’ Guild, which is hosting the event, has teamed up with PEER 1 Hosting to create the new competition for public speakers. It’s a rare opportunity for business gurus with a gift for public speaking to make their mark by showing how they can inspire an audience to do great things.

The winner will receive £2,000 and get £1,500 of career-enhancing PR support from a top London agency to boost their career as a professional speaker. Second prize will be £1,000 cash and the third prize is £500 cash.

Dominic Monkhouse, EMEA MD of PEER 1 Hosting, said: “The economy is in turmoil and our politicians are failing miserably to offer any inspiration. The UK needs motivating like never before and we know the inspirational speaking talent is out there to do it, we just need to find it.”

Entrants will need to send in a 60 second video audition together with a written pitch and a short profile by 27 August 2012.

Up to 24 finalists will be invited to Southampton on Thursday 27 September for auditions. The day will end with a ‘Grand Final’ in The Hub Theatre in Southampton, hosted by Geoff Burch, star of the BBC’s All Over the Shop.
