Did you ever think it would be cool to break a World Record?

Guest Blog Post by Professional Speaking Coach, Patrick O'Mara

As a child, did you ever think it would be cool to break a World Record? My name is Patrick O’Mara, Pro Presenting, LLC and I still think it would be cool… that is one of the reasons I am trying to break the World Record for the Most Speeches in 24 hours. This event will take place all around Birmingham on June 8.

To break this record, I will attempt to deliver 34 presentations, at 34 different locations. Each presentation needs to be a minimum of 10 minutes long, with 10+ audience members in attendance, and attendees count only once. Guinness also requires each speech to be unique, spontaneous, and unscripted so I cannot deliver the same speech 34 times in a row. Bummer! Therefore, I will open a new fortune cookie at each location then create a speech based upon the fortune. 

Logistically, this attempt is also a challenge. My day will begin at 5:15 a.m. at Fitness 459 CrossFit and conclude around 9:30 p.m. at Brock’s Gap Brewing Company in Hoover. For this to work, I need to deliver 2 to 3 speeches every hour for 16 hours. 

Fortunately, I’ve had a lot of help. As part of a team outreach project, students from UAB’s Barefield Entrepreneurship program have worked to market and enroll organizations and individuals to participate; and Digital Motion Event Services is serving as a key partner to coordinate, register, and record all presentations and to help with evidence submission. 

Other organizations participating in this event include the Hoover Chamber of Commerce, Hoover Met, Homewood, Woodlawn, and Hoover libraries, WBRC Fox News, Vulcan Park and Museum, Aldridge Gardens, UAB Collat School of Business, Innovation Depot, REV Birmingham (SocialVenture), Ross Bridge Hotel, and more! 

Volunteer audience members are still needed! Let me say that again… Volunteer audience members are still needed!
