Ryan’s earnest speech appealed to the audience to join together to achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.Third place winner Flinz Wong Jing Ewe, another second-semester Foundation Business student, invited the audience to create their own worlds to escape from the difficulties of reality. His style and demeanour were uniquely his own, and he engaged the audience, encouraging them to use their creativity and imagination, but finally, saying that it was all right to create their own world on Earth. The Public Speaking Challenge is the Swinburne Debaters’ Club annual event that gives students a platform to express their thoughts on current issues through public speaking. This event aims to encourage students to not only speak in English, but also to practice their critical thinking and reasoning skills. It is a half-day event, consisting of two rounds – the prepared speech based on the given theme, and the impromptu round consisting of two prompts which the students have to link to the theme in their 3-minute speech. This year, a People’s Choice Award was presented to the Finalist chosen by the audience and not the Judges. The inaugural winner of the People’s Choice Award was Wahaj Qaiser, a postgraduate student.
