Young Speakers Competition 2023

27th April 2023, 5:30 – 7:30 pm

The Competition

The competition is open to everyone under the age of 37 at the time of the competition (i.e. those eligible to be members of the NI Young Generation Network). However, the competition is open to both members and non-members of the NI.

The Subject Matter

We encourage you to give a talk on any nuclear energy topic, whether technical, social or personal. We hope that this scope will encourage the involvement of those of you who are new to the industry, as well as the more experienced people. For those of you wishing to present a “commercial/sensitive topic”, we remind you of the importance of obtaining permission from your employer.

The Experience

The objective is to encourage you to gain valuable experience in communication skills before a live audience. Emphasis is placed on presentation rather than the overall content.

How to Apply

All you have to do at this stage is submit a title, supported by a 200-word synopsis, using this application form by Friday 3rd March.  We will then notify those selected to prepare an accompanying presentation, which should be used at the competition.

The Marking Scheme

Each talk will last for 10 minutes followed by 5 minutes of Question and Answer session. The presentation will be assessed on:

  • Topic criteria met
  • Synopsis
  • Oral presentation and talk construction
  • Clarity
  • Handling of questions and answers

Monetary prizes will be awarded
