Vice President of Toastmasters speaks at WE's lounge
Visitors and employees to WE Communications, a Lake Oswego public relations agency, were treated to an hour-long speech and Q&A session by Toastmasters First Vice President Balraj Arunasalam on Thursday, May 5.
Arunasalam, a Distinguished Toastmaster, led the conversation titled, Lead Yourself, Lead the World in front of a crowd of over 30 huddled in WEs lounge.
The Colombo, Sri Lanka native used his own experience with Toastmasters, which initiated over 26 years ago, to discuss leadership, saying a daily activity of successful leaders is to reflect and see how you impacted others, the influences youve made on others, then youve earned your day.
WE Communications houses WE Toasted, a Toastmaster club born in 2007 that is open to the public.
I am an example of a made leader, not a born leader, Arunasalam said, If youre willing to reach out to develop yourself, the whole world is willing to help.
