About a year back, amidst the Covid 19 Pandemic, we decided to start our very own MBA Toastmasters Club. We thought to ourselves, “The bachelor’s toastmaster club is up and running quite successfully so why not start one for the master’s as well?”. But there was one challenge, most of our MBA students are international students and online meetings aren’t as fun, or so we thought.
The idea of joining the MBA club was well received among our students and we felt ever-so-motivated to start it with a bang! Although the primary goal was to help our students enhance their public speaking skills so that they don’t just take advantage of their MBA degree once they graduate but also upgrade their soft skills. The progress so far has been promising, both for our students and for us. With students going all the way up to Division Contest and bagging prizes for being ranked in the Top ¬ amongst many other talented competitors. But it’s been more than just attending bi-weekly meetings, taking up roles, or practicing for the competition. Every member of our club has made new friends, shared funny moments, got to understand each other’s culture, and much more! What we’ve right now isn’t just a talented group of people, but a family, separated by countries but united by heart. Although all of us haven’t met or had dinner together, we look forward to that day, not only to celebrate our success but also to celebrate all the moments we’ve shared together!
