A non-profit educational organisation with its US headquarters called Toastmasters International (TI) runs clubs all over the world to advance leadership, public speaking, and communication skills. The School of Commerce of JAIN (Deemed-to-be University) had long sought a Toastmasters club, and now that wish has been eventually realised. On 9th September 2022, the JU Toastmasters Club was officially launched.
As a special guest speaker, the School of Commerce had the honour of inviting Mr. Arvind. He is the Art Director at More Than Textbook, a business he started with the goal of revolutionising education in India. He is the Republic of Toastmasters' Vice President of Education and a Toastmaster himself. Mr. Arvind is the founding president of the Republic of Toastmasters as well as the MTT Roastmasters Charter VPE.
The event was held at the JAIN Global Campus, and about 73 students took part. Three well-known Toastmasters were in attendance, and they gave the students an overview of Toastmasters International's features and advantages. After JU Toastmasters' hierarchy was revealed the members clamoured for positions in the principal officer ranks. A Q&A session followed the event's conclusion.
