President’s Message

All great leaders have one thing in common. They are excellent orators. Imagine Martin Luther King, Abraham Lincoln, Mahatma Gandhi. The reason for the connection between communication and leadership is not hard to fathom. A person cannot inspire others to action, if she or he cannot communicate well. In fact, if you improve your public speaking and communication skills, it may automatically make you a better leader. And that’s why the tagline of Toastmasters International – “Where Leaders Are Made“  .

Gurgaon Toastmasters Club (GTMC) is the premier community club in Gurgaon. It was established in 2008 and has been a President’s Distinguished Club every year since then. GTMC is also the proud recipient of the Golden Gavel (the highest award for Toastmasters Clubs in District 41) for five successive years. The club has shaped many leaders within Toastmasters with various Area Governors, Division Governors and District Officers, both past and present, being members of GTMC. The club’s membership had swelled to such an extent last year that it had to be split into two, giving birth to another wonderful club – Millenium City Toastmasters. The aforesaid facts bear ample testimony to the fact that GTMC is one of the best Toastmasters Clubs in the world and definitely the best in Gurgaon.

I had walked into a GTMC meeting as a guest about two and a half years ago and it has transformed me in many ways. It has made me a better communicator, a better leader, a better mentor and has given me many friends.

If you would like to be a better speaker and leader, or simply wish to find out more about our club, you are most welcome to attend our upcoming meeting as a guest. We meet every Sunday at 10.15 am at the Shri Ram School, V-37 Moulsari Avenue, DLF Phase III, Gurgaon. For more information, contact our VP Membership Kumar Goyal at 9899546926 or our VP PR Sudhir Saha at 7827536831.
