In its majesty, rareness and magic, the white stag is the epitome of the desirability of a spiritual quest for insuperable beauty. Celtic legend has it that they who set their eyes on a white stag are on their way to closing in on fortune. This magical being is also the symbol of the transgression of one’s comfort zones in view of the achievement of excellence. All in all, our theme for BEST SPEAKER 2019, the white stag, is meant to urge the contestants, organizers and viewers alike, to excel in their legendary quest for the luminary!
