A word is a sword that can alter the world. A leader should know how to rein the words appropriately in front of a crowd, to make the things done. But public speaking is a fear that many of us have. That is why, the Leo Club of University of Moratuwa planned to participate in toastmaster basics workshops, by joining hands with the Toastmasters Club of Rathmalana, with the intention of polishing the public speaking skills of the fellow members in our club.
The first and second phases of this joint project were held on September 9th and 30th at Toyata Auditorium, Rathmalana. There were several sessions with the participation of our Leos and prospects together with the members of the Toastmasters Club, and some other sessions done by them to make our members understand, what a public speaking should be like.
The two phases already conducted proved that, this project is a very good opportunity to our club members and prospects, to gather an experience on public speaking, in order to develop their leadership skills. Therefore, we have planned to continue this project, with some more advanced sessions in future.
