Learning to speak in public
Standard Chartered Hong Kong English Public Speaking Contest 2017
Being able to speak in public requires confidence, but this is something that can be learnt the more it is practised. Public speaking is also a practical way to communicate with others and make friends.

The HKFYG Standard Chartered Hong Kong English Public Speaking Contest has become one of Hong Kong's most popular competitions and gives young orators a chance to get over their fears, build confidence and pit their skills against others.

The Finals are coming up soon and this is all thanks to the loyal support of our partners, the Standard Chartered Bank, the Standard Chartered Community Foundation and the English-Speaking Union (Hong Kong).

Come and support our young public speakers! More details
