SA's public speaking world champion

The Global Toastmasters World Championship of Public Speaking has never been won by an African ... until now.

Professional speaker and facilitator Verity Price from Cape Town made history when she became the first African to win the award.

She beat close to 30 000 other participants from 149 different countries to clinch the prize.

Her award-winning speech detailed how she coped with depression and anxiety and the changes she made in her life to overcome it.

Price says she hopes her title will inspire other public speakers on our continent.
