Learning from Toastmaster International’s Speaker of the Year

As we know, verbal personal communication and public speaking are often keys to a successful career. These are also areas in which many people could strengthen their skills. One way we can do this is by studying the techniques used by the best speakers.

Toastmasters International “is a world leader in communication and leadership development. Our membership is 313,000 strong. Members improve their speaking and leadership skills by attending one of the 14,650 clubs in 126 countries that make up our global network of meeting locations.”

Each year, Toastmasters International has a World Championship of Public Speaking competition. In 2014, Sri Lanka’s Dananjaya Hettiarachchi was the winner of the competition.
