Speech Topics

Learning speech.
This is a twenty minute autobiographical speech about her years at school. She had dyslexia and her school didn’t cater for this learning difficulty. She was expected to slip through the educational net. But she didn’t. As in most cases of dyslexia there is usually an area the dyslexic excels in, and her area was performance.  She tells this as a motivational and all too common story, which she wishes the whole audience can relate to. Also, that it is never too late to learn, we live in privileged times where education is our right and that learning should be a lifetime friend.  As with all her speeches, this is poignant and hopefully light and funny, but also motivating.

This is best suited to an adult audience who is embarking on adult education.
In the past it has also gone down particularly well with teachers.

Entertainment speech.
This speaks for itself. After 25 years in the business there are an awful lot of stories to tell. All her stories are either wicked or spicy and she tries to make every thing very down to earth. From playing the donkey in the school nativity, to wearing a rubber dress on the set of Das Boat in Germany, where on a hot summer’s evening when the dress decided to constrict like a rubber band and leave her starkers in front of two hundred strangers. Her stories are slightly silly and very light hearted.

This speech appeals to anyone, it isn’t political and doesn’t make any social comment, it’s just fun.

Testimonials

"Toyah Willcox - Wow! Quite a story – quite a career!  Toyah is all of these things and more . . . energetic, passionate, motivational, relevant. Feedback from our members included comments like ‘Great event with an amazing speaker’ and ‘An absolutely superb event’. Toyah’s speech has broad appeal and spans age groups so it’s definitely not just for those of a ‘certain age’. The queen of reinvention, her stories had the audience’s attention throughout and in the Q & A that followed, well we could have carried on all afternoon! On top of all that Toyah was an absolute pleasure to work with. Accommodating and a consummate professional. Highly recommended."
