The International Public Speaking Competition (IPSC) is the world’s largest competition of its kind. Bringing together participants, aged 16-20, from over 40 countries for a week of cultural exchange and competition, the IPSC is one of the ESU’s flagship programmes.

The Grand Final on Friday, 17 May will take place at the infamous Royal Institution.  The very best young performers will deliver their speeches, following on from the competition heats held earlier in the week.  The theme for National Competitions, and the Grand Final for 2024 is:There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so.’
