We are not all cut from the same cloth

We are not all cut from the same cloth,

               but together we make a beautiful quilt”

All of us are not cut from the same cloth.
The differences that we have are much more than our similarities

Yet, when we get together as a team to work towards accomplishing a task, these differences vanish into thin air.

We believe in the greater strength we have when we combine our forces and do not worry too much about individual brilliance.

We learn from each other, we consider no one is above another, nor is anyone superior to another. We are all equal team members of one Toastmasters family. Read more

Lead by Communication

Lead by Communication

Lead by Communication

Nishani Pigera

A great leader is not someone who merely makes him/herself heard. A great leader is someone with the exceptional skill of inspiring followers to believe in his/her vision, values and ideals with the use of effective communication.

History bears ample examples that, from constructive leaderships which developed nations into world economic power houses to destructive leaderships that lead troupes to wage wars against other nations were all driven by one factor; skillful communication that convinced people to join the force, be it labor or the military.

A closer look at the legendary leaders from the past like Martin Luther King Jr., Winston Churchill or Margaret Thatcher, to present day leaders like Barak Obama will show you that they all have one quality in common, which is their exceptional ability to address their audience in a manner that is inspiring and resounding. It is no secret that even the Nazi leader Adolf Hitler captivated millions of people in over 5,000 of his persuasive speeches, and to date, is remembered as one of the world’s most influential orators.
