The Open House session started with an address by the only corporate dignitary InterraIT’s Asoke Laha who shared his thoughts about dramatic change in the IT industry, where today, the IT Engineer is expected to work with the customer directly and the first and most important thing is communication. Mr. Laha added     “It does not matter what you know. Effectiveness is what the customer thinks what you told them. & that’s where the key factor of communication comes in. Anybody who wants to be successful would have to be an excellent communicator. ” The audience, then had the privilege of listening to International President Mike Storkey, who reminded members to be committed to the Toastmasters promise & urged them to prepare, practice and strive to be the best that they can be.  He encouraged members to use their club to have fun, fulfil their learning needs, give their best & accept responsibility. Asking members to be ambassadors, Mike Storkey said “ Be the disease. Infect the population. Go out there and cause a plague of people who want to join Toastmasters”. 

The Open house was moderated by InterraIT Toastmasters Club SPOC Pinaki Das and the Leaders on the dais answered diverse questions related to Toastmasters, Communication & Leadership. On behalf of InterraIT, Pinaki Das delivered a formal Vote of Thanks, after which District Director Mukesh Kulothia presented InterraIT CEO Asoke Laha with a Toastmasters Ambassador pin for his support for Toastmasters. 

Earlier in the day, the two District Officers from InterraIT Toastmasters Club – Division Director Pinaki Das & Area Director Swati De – attended Leadership Training sessions with Mike Storkey & Lesley Storkey.
