Toastmasters International is a nonprofit educational organization that operates clubs worldwide for the purpose of helping its members improve their communication, public speaking and leadership skills.
Lilongwe Toastmasters publicist, Isabel Kachinjika, said the clubs meet periodically where members embark on various speeches and leadership projects so that they can sharpen their skills through practice and constructive feedback from other members.
Kachinjika said contests are an important part of the toastmasters’ educational program as they provide an opportunity for toastmasters to gain speaking experience, as well as an opportunity for other toastmasters to learn by observing proficient speakers.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
