Here’s a breakdown of the speech that won the 2015 World Championship of Public Speaking | Business Insider India

Qahtani starts his speech with a sight gag, pretending to consider lighting up a cigarette before the audience’s reaction convinces him not to. He transitions from this into a sober defense of the tobacco industry before saying, straight faced, that all of the facts and figures he cited were made up. The aaudience then roars with laughter.

“When you get an audience laughing, you’ve got them on your side,” Qahtani says.
