This video was taken at the International Toastmaster’s Convention in 2009 where Mark Hunter won the World Championship of Public Speaking. I was thrilled to hear that Mark had won, I had seen him in person in Phoenix several years ago, and he came in third. I thought then, that he should have been first, but that was not to be that year, but it was to be his in 2009.
His message in this short 5-7 minute speech is one that I think will lift everyone this Monday. We have so much around us that brings us down, but Mark who has faced a life changing accident and came through it at age 22, looks at how love can change the world.
