About the session:
Introductory session about Toastmasters wherein TiE Charter member, Mr. Ajay Hiraskar will be giving details about the “Toastmasters for Startup Entrepreneurs and their teams”.
Toastmasters International is a global non-profit organisation whose sole purpose is to help individuals develop their leadership & communication. The organization was set-up in 1924 and now operates in 143 countries & 16,800+ clubs thru voluntary leaders who work on a pro-bono basis.
Entrepreneurs are normally technologically savvy & driven by a purpose, but often cannot articulate their thoughts in an effective way. This dampens their ability to pitch to customers, investors, partners & potential employees. This was the reason for combining the needs of entrepreneurs with the program created by Toastmasters by formation of a Toastmasters club which is specially focused on helping startup founders.
