The Speaker’s Edge Competition is unlike any other speech event in the country, challenging Ole Miss students to express ideas, knowledge, and understanding clearly and effectively. Started by Ole Miss alumni, the Speaker’s Edge Competition brings industry professionals. retirees, working alumni and students together, requiring students to adapt their messages to different audiences and different situations. Ole Miss students spend a week and a half working with world-class communication coaches, discovering the strengths and weaknesses of their own personal style. The program culminates in a two-day competition, where students present three different presentations for a series of judges. A Speaker’s Edge Champion is named for the student performing the best in all three events. The spoken word remains a critical skill in any industry. Speaker’s Edge has become a hallmark of the Ole Miss MBA Program here on campus and we are proud to be joined by students within the Accounting Graduate Program and roll out Speaker’s Edge for Undergraduate students.
