gallery/img-20180724-wa0008

Miss you a lot Leo, it's not fair to leave us so early. A friend, a spirited leader, and a staunch supporter and believer in the concept of Master Orator Championship (MOC). It's a great loss to toastmasters and in particpular to MOC. We wish that your dream of taking the MOC to the entire District 98 will surely become a reality soon. We will make Season 3 of MOC a huge success as you wished. With a heavy heart, we bid you farewell, good bye Leo. RIP - Team MOC

About Master Orator Championship:

Master Orator Championship is a hunt for the best orator in the college circuit of the two states of Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Nagpur and Raipur. The students are sieved through multiple rounds of selection starting from qualifiers to the finale where 10 contestants from across colleges deliver 5 to 7 minute speeches that are mentored and evaluated by a panel of experienced Toastmasters.

 

Millions of students churned out from colleges every year are not entirely equipped to face the global competition prevailing today in terms of communicative competence. To cater to this need, Master Orator Championship attempts to cultivate and nurture their thirst to excel in oratory skills.

MOC is open to all students with a valid college ID and an enrolment number between the age groups of 18 to 24 years.

 

Why should you Register?

This contest of MOC will provide you a unique platform to showcase your oratory skills in front of the world. Apart from this, you get to meet with several Toastmasters, who constantly put an effort to improve their communication and leadership skills, and build your own network across the Toastmasters community of AP, Telangana, Nagpur and Raipur, and beyond your college community.

 

So enroll yourself for this Championship contest at the earliest and show your oratory skills to the world, if you feel that:

  • You have the perfect combination of exciting speech content with superb delivery and style;
  • You can articulate, engage and smoothly deliver at both a vocal and physical level;
