A word from President

Dear blog readers,

This is my first addition to our blog, and I am excited to tell you how I feel about this opportunity to connect with you via this wonderful tool. We believe that regular posts on our website will give you much closer look and feel of our club, than our Facebook or Instagram pages, or even the older form of newsletter. Of course, nothing can compete with actual attendance of our meetings, and I want to invite you one more time, because, if there is a place in Astana to be in – it is Astana Toastmasters Club.

Our club continues to grow and the possibility of splitting the club is looming ahead. Every meeting we have a full house of speakers and every other meeting we have an ice-breaker, the person who is eager to become a member. Topics of our speakers’ presentations cover everything – from sharing travel tips to inspiring by own dramatic experiences, from entertaining speeches with lots of jokes to touching performances about world around us. To give our members more opportunities to speak we hosted an additional meeting at Nazarbayev University (NU) at February, where we listened speeches of members whom we haven’t heard for a while – Kanat Bazaraly, Darmen Amanbayev and Jaksybek Nurtles. In March we will have two more additional meetings at NU.

Astana Toastmasters Club is the place, where you can learn a lot, but only if you want to, only if you are ready to sacrifice the time, step up and look at your fears straight up. Results are sometimes not what we expect, but experience is always fulfilling.

In February we had many social events and memorable meetings. Please, have a look at its highlights, our best performers of past month and highlights of fun activities. Hope this March will also be filled with unforgettable meetings. I should also mention that by the end of March, there will be a membership fee due for the next half-year. See you in future meetings and have a nice first day of spring!

Your President,

Anuar Zhumabayev
