I am happy to introduce to you Toastmasters International, a world leader in communication and leadership development, with more than 357,000 members. These members improve their speaking and leadership skills by attending one of the 16,600 clubs in 143 countries that make up our global network of meeting locations.
The Toastmasters movement has taken strong roots in Tamilnadu and especially in Chennai, where most major corporates encourage employee participation in Toastmasters, often financially incentivising the same. The reason is the salutary effect Toastmasters educational system and other processes have on the members in creating confident and competent business executives. Toastmasters becomes a virtual round-the-year trainer that supplements corporate training programmes.
Corporate sector will benefit particularly from Pathways, the new curriculum launched in May this year, which offers 290 skills in communication and leadership. Holisticaly rooted in work and career situations, Pathways is contemporary in every way.
We will be happy to present to decision makers and your employees, a demonstration of the Toastmasters meeting that is central to the transformational magic. The meeting can be tailored for a duration of 60 to 90 minutes. This way, employees can get a good feel of what to expect and take an informed decision to join the Toastmasters. We can then facilitate formation of a Club, which would ideally have upwards of 20 members, who will meet once every week for well-structured hour-long meetings. We will appoint experienced Mentors and Sponsors to nurture the club to a state of maturity and self-sustenance.
Looking forward to share all the details.
