The auspicious occasion of Teacher’s Day marked the inaugural of our very own TYHO MISB Bocconi Toastmasters Club. We had the benign presence of Area Director B5 District 98 Toastmaster Kannagi Mishra whose evaluation and guidance showed us a path of bright future of being an effective leader. The session started with the President of TYHO giving a brief vote of thanks to the management for facilitating us with such an opportunity continuing with an enthralling session and ending up with enthusiastic and smiling faces with a vision to develop our leadership and communication skills. Also profound thanks was devoted to our club mentor Toastmaster Vishal Khatri from JP Morgan, Powai for guiding us and getting us acquainted with the importance of Toastmasters.
Here is an insight of toastmaster KannagiMishra, Area Director – B5, District 98 Toastmasters International &the former president of TCS Maitree Toastmasters experience of the very first session of TYHO MISB Bocconi Toastmaster club.
As I entered the contemporary and stricken premises of MISB Bocconi, I saw pepped up students running along the corridor and a few stayed put to welcome the guests. MBA students can teach you a thing or two about how to manage time & resources efficiently. The first Toastmasters meeting of MISB Bocconi was impeccably planned by the students and was nothing short of a ‘perfect Toastmaster meeting’. I was elated and surprised to see that each role bearer had researched well about the role and presented their best on stage. The three P1, ice breaker speech, speakers were a delight. Needless to say that the club members aim nothing less than the best to hone their communication & leadership skills. Fighting against time, they plan to go a step higher and conduct their first speech contest within a month of charter. Now that’s how you get the ball rolling! Let me take this opportunity to wish the club mentors – Shruthi Sharma & Vishal Khatri, and the entire executive committee of the club for their commendable efforts. I am extremely fortunate to have this club under my wing – Area B5.
At the end, I would like to share a message with all the members of MISB Bocconi Toastmasters club – Give this platform time to grow on you and you will see incredible changes without any conscious effort. The only effort I wish you to put is your heart to the program laid out by Toastmasters International. Visit conferences, other club meetings & be a part of this amazing network filled with opportunities to grow. Spread out your wings & fly high!
We hope that the time spent in Toastmasters will turn out to be one of the best and the most transformational time of our lives when will see ourselves turning from small buds to full bloomed flowers under the sunshine of our mentors and peers and will be able to give an enriching aura to the society.
