AZAM urges more people especially the youth to polish their communication skills through programmes such as the Toastmasters programme.

Speaking at a function called ”High Tea with a Toast” in Kuching this afternoon, its Deputy chairman YBhg. Dato Hajah Norhyati binti Mohd Ismail said the development of young people through the Toastmasters programme could not only make them skilled public speakers but also as important human resources in the development of Sarawak.

The High tea was organised by Angkatan Zaman Mansang Sarawak (AZAM Sarawak) in collaboration with the AZAM Toastmasters Club .  

Dato Norhyati added, ”I would love more young people to be more involved in the club to meet diverse groups of people not only locally but also internationally as well as to produce more talents in English language which are useful for AZAM’s programmes and activities.  

Meanwhile, the current president of the club, Nur Zaihanirah Zaini said Toastmasters is a worldwide non-profit educational organization that empowers people to become more effective communicators and leaders.

”Being a Toastmaster will polish your communication skills and leadership skills. At the same time, you could build your self-confidence and maximize your potential either in your organization or on any platform” added Hani.

The Past Region Advisor of AZAM Toastmasters Club, Mr. Mohamad Ariff Irwani Azahari who also spoke at the function hoped that the club will be a networking platform with AZAM’s existing collaborators and to be a link to the community.
