Forum '14: Toastmasters @ The Workplace

Toastmasters International District 51, Kuala Terengganu Annual Conference. Event: Forum '14: Toastmasters @ The Workplace

Forum '14: Toastmasters @ The Workplace

INTRODUCTION: The 21st century workplace is face-paced, global, innovative and competitive. What do our CCs, CLs, ACs, ALs and DTMs mean and how much they "weigh" when we step out the doors of Toastmasters and into the battlefield of employment and business?

Do the communication and leadership skills we develop through Toastmasters really have an impact on our career and business?

In this forum, we will discuss the relevance and fluidity of Toastmasters in the different aspects of work as well as business and explore how Toastmasters should be integrated into corporate development and organizational growth.

Our panel speakers comprises of an interesting mix of three baby-boomers and a Gen-Y "baby": one lady and three men. They will share their respective stories and present their views, based on their corporate exposure, business acumen, leadership training and experience in Toastmasters.

  • To reinforce the fact that our personal development through Toastmasters gives us the competitive advantage in the workplace.
  • To inspire young adults, especially Gen-Ys, to endorse and embrace Toastmasters.
  • To call out to District leaders and club leaders to reach out to young adults.
  • To encourage Toastmasters who take up leadership roles to equip themselves with the necessary training and skills so that they can be more effective in carrying out their respective roles in Toastmasters. In addition to that, they are able to transfer their learning from Toastmasters to the workplace.
  • To encourage integration of the Toastmasters program into corporate development and organizational growth
