Blue Ocean Toastmasters Club Draws Popular Response Professionals groomed in public speaking Dubai: Public speaking is a powerful leadership tool, one that helps professionals fast-track their careers. Blue Ocean, UAE's leading professional training institution has taken a small step in the right direction—launching the Blue Ocean Toastmaster's Club – to help students learn this all important professional skill. “This is one of the greatest investments you can make in yourself ” explained Mr. Abdul Azeez, President of Blue Ocean Toasmasters Club, a life-changing opportunity for students to develop their public speaking and presentation skills,” he added. In the UAE and elsewhere in the Middle East, the power of rhetoric and public discourse remains grossly underestimated. Very few educational and professional institutions actually train professionals to speak eloquently and confidently.

A flair for public speaking can actually land a professional in a win-win situation. He not only succeeds in a job interview, but is also regarded by the management as an asset to the company, often called upon to make presentations to clients, and address the audience from the podium during seminars and conferences. Drawn from diverse backgrounds as varied as information technology, engineering, healthcare, retail, HR, cabin crew, logistics and supply chain, quality control, the members of the Blue Ocean Toastmasters Club have come together to create an effective learning platform.

They are taking valuable lessons in confidence, poise, vocabulary, time management and a host of other English speaking skills that are imperative to succeed in today's fast-paced competitive world. For the first time in the UAE, a professional training institution, recognizing the need for individuals to transform themselves as public speakers has taken this non-profit initiative. Admission to this club is completely free of cost for Blue Ocean students and all are invited to come, see, and learn from the speakers who introduce themselves and speak on topics designated for the day.

A Blue Ocean Professional Toastmasters meeting is a learn-by-doing workshop in which participants hone their speaking and leadership skills in a no-pressure atmosphere. Members learn communication skills by working in the Competent Communication manual, a series of 10 self-paced speaking assignments designed to instill a basic foundation in public speaking. Members also learn leadership skills by taking on various meeting roles and working in the Competent Leadership manual. In the learn-by-doing approach, members are not lectured about leadership skills; instead they are given responsibilities to mentor and help. Blue Ocean has roped in expert speakers from the Dubai Chapter of Toastmaster's International, to train and evaluate students on their speaking skills. Since 1924, more than 4 million people around the world have become more confident speakers and leaders because of their participation in Toastmasters. (Ends)
