Sri Lankan Toastmasters Club-Qatar was formed in October 2017 by a few enthusiasts who wanted to provide a platform to their community members to excel in communication, leadership and public speaking skills. Kamil Ariff was the charter president from October 2017 until June 2019, and now the club is continuing successfully in its fourth year and scheduled to celebrate its centenary meeting in January 2022.
One of the key goals of the new executive committee is to enhance its growing membership by reaching out to fellow Sri Lankans in Qatar who are in need of improving and enhancing their communication, public speaking and leadership skills. Since its inception, more than 100 members have benefited from the club’s various educational programmes, workshops and activities, the statement adds.
Toastmasters International is a worldwide non-for-profit organisation focusing on developing communication and leadership skills of its members.
