As the person who witnessed the growth of the Toastmasters Club in China, from 19 clubs in 2005 to more than 80 now, Ostergard was affirmative on its development in Korea, too. "I see the potential of 200 to 400 clubs in Korea in the next 10 years," he said.

An emcee stands behind the podium, peers into the audience and announces the name of the speaker and the title of her speech: "Please Humiliate Me."

Julie Miyeon Sohn has traveled here from Seoul, South Korea. She shakes the emcee hand, turns to face the audience and announces:

"Hi, my name is Julie and I have a confession to make. I have a fetish for humiliation."

It's not how one might expect someone to open a "speech." But nobody in this contest gives speeches in the traditional sense anymore. People want to hear a story.

Sohn tells a rollicking one about how her biggest humiliations led to her greatest periods of growth. She mentions her fumbling attempts to master English and the advice she received one day to get an American boyfriend.

"But my mother told me a woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle," she says as the crowd erupts in laughter.
