We are delighted to announce, in no particular order, our Grand Final 2020 VIP judges who will be joining the event live via Zoom on December 1st. We’ll be sharing who they are one by one so that you can get to know them and learn what they will be looking for in our Grand Finalists’ speeches.

Princilla Agyemang won the 2019 Jack Petchey’s “Speak Out” Challenge! Grand Final with her speech ‘Taboo Love’. She is the current Grand Champion.

Why is empowering young people important to you?

“Young people are our future and the faster they can mobilise and rise up the better.”

What does communication mean to you?

“Communication is how we interact with each other. it is how we find what we have in common which is so important.”

And, thinking about our young speakers, how can they provoke the change they want to see in the world?

“By speaking up. When you make your voice heard things change even if it doesn’t feel like it “
