“India is among our core focus areas for expansion,” said Daniel Rex, CEO, Toastmasters International. He was speaking at a panel discussion with Asoke K. Laha, Founder, President & CEO, Interra Information Technologies and Pallav Verma, District Director, Toastmasters International. The discussion was part of an Open Housefocused on how Toastmasters helpemployees scale up their leadership and communication skills as well as personality development.
Under the leadership of Asoke K Laha, InterraIT transformed the information technology workspace with a view to bridge the arbitrary divide between employment and fulfilment. The InterraITphilosophy puts the individual center stage to encourage value creation based on entrepreneurial skills, team work and leadership.
The partnership with Toastmasters International is intended to develop a culture that adds innovation and commitment to common tasks and to surmountthe chasm between contract and trust, compliance and discipline, control and support, constraint and stretch.
InterraIT is one such first corporate toastmaster clubs in the capital that helps in shaping personalities. It was set up in 2006 with the idea that industry leaders play the most vital role in encouraging participation of workforce, while culture of empathy and equal opportunity towards workers goes a long way to ensure professional excellence- a win-win situation for the industry and the workforce.
The Open House session saw animated interactions with people taking away key messages from Daniel Rex who shed light on issues like insecurity at workplace, confidence while interacting with management and ways to get appraisal meeting right.
