    World Speech Day: The Story

    From zero to 100 nations in 3 years

    World Speech Day was launched by Simon Gibson (Founder; pictured) at the Athens Democracy Forum in 2015.


    The idea came from Simon's work in establishing a free database for contemporary and historic speeches. Speeches change the world: socially, politically, in the arts, business and religion. They play a profound role in holding our societies together and shaping change. The idea was born: a day to celebrate speeches and speech making around the world and reach out to #unexpectedvouces everywhere.
