Toastmasters’ International (TMI) is a platform that can transform people into better leaders, effective listeners and communicators and hone your public speaking skills. It helps individuals learn the art of speaking, listening and thinking – the vital skills that promotes self-actualisation and enhance leadership potential. Toastmasters have proven to be a platform where speakers are groomed and cultivated.
SPJ Toastmasters Club aims to allow EMBA participants to hone their speaking skills, thinking skills and leadership skills through active participation in Toastmasters activities and to provide an ongoing communications and leadership training facility within the club. We have 23 active members across weekday batches.
