“As we celebrate the Journey to Stardom now, let us commemorate our energetic engagement, exciting enjoyment the everlasting enrichment of District 82 by the end of our term 2016-17.”

Journey to Stardom with a grandest Ovation!

The aftermath of Ovation 2017 is inflicting impressive illustrations in every one who attended the conference. I find that all social media platforms, e-mails, SMS and calls of the last few days were filled with magnanimous testimonials of the grandest ovation we have concluded on 28thMay 2017.The influence of ostentatious Ovation 2017 still lingers in the minds and lives of our members and some denoted it as “Post Ovation euphoric syndrome”

Saleem and I still continue with our post ovation obligations amidst those enthralling encouragements. We along with our entire team are elated to present your ‘journey to stardom’. I take the privilege of honoring each & every member and teams who have contributed to the splendid success with a ‘Standing Ovation’. Read more

“Our thoughtfulness and actions matter a lot to achieve our mission 100% as it will be a pure reflection of our leadership and character. We will then be the envoys of Toastmasters who could attract many to join our journey of Engagement, Enjoyment and Enrichment.”

In my last view point I urged that we live the values of Toastmasters. Now I find it is equally important to know that our thoughts and actions directly reflect our character. James Allen has said “A man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of all his thoughts”.

Similarly, we are the emissaries, envoys and emblems of Toastmasters. It is our responsibility to do our best to behave, show and try to be role models for every member and especially in the eyes of prospective members or the world out there.

We have witnessed a great mid-year conference in the first week of November, organized by young budding Toastmaster leaders of VIT University, Vellore headed by the Conference Chair DTM Navaneeth V Ganesh. Read more

“Let us collectively strive to uphold the Values of toastmasters, in order to be the Best Presidents Distinguished District in the world.”

WOW!

Winners… Organizers… Witnesses

It was three eventful months of enthusiastic Engagement, enthralling Enjoyment and enlightening Enrichment for all Winners, Organizers and Witnesses.

We witnessed winners all over our district at the Club, Area and Division levels. Not only the winners but all the contestants at every level, not only the contests but the installations and the conference organizers, not only the organizers & the officers but every individual who witnessed those events, would have discovered their own leadership skills, communication potential and learnt from others to be better leaders & communicators.

Yet, let us think … have we lived in values of toastmasters? Read more
