Speaking at the installation ceremony Amana Bank Chief Executive Officer Mr Mohamed Azmeer stated that “Toastmasters is a unique platform for individuals to not only develop their speaking skills but also improve their leadership and communications skills. What really stands out in Toastmasters is the fact that the members themselves evaluate each other and give feedback, keeping in line with the theme of friends helping friends or in the Bank’s case colleagues helping colleagues. I believe that Toastmasters can facilitate the grooming of the required skill set for the future leaders of the Bank.”
