I began the Toastmasters journey on 14th August 2018, became a member of a club on 1st September 2018 and gave my 12 MINUTE icebreaker speech and got disqualified as I wasn’t supposed to speak for more than 6 – 61/2 minutes.
I got wonderful mentors along the way and joined several clubs to date. My learning was well supported by my mentor Mr. Askander Mirza DTM and others.
This is a moment to say thank you, express gratitude and also to take a break from this break-neck speed learning that I have been indulging in for past 4 years with Udemy first and Toastmasters International next.

- 5 more Pathways
- DTM Program
- Accredited Speakers Program

This is a moment to say thank you to Family – especially my wife who was overjoyed with each Best Speaker, Roletaker ribbon I would win or a Level Completion badge, certificate and ribbon I would get – my daughters, grand daughter all cheered with equal zeal. So did my fellow toastmasters, evaluators, mentors, Office bearers of each club I spoke at for project speech – I thank them humbly and with my heart.
Thank you all.
