When I first joined Toastmasters 3 years back, I only wanted to improve my public speaking skills. As a sales manager, I meet a lot of people every day, and I thought, I need to join Toastmasters to maximize my level of communication with the people I deal with on daily basis. However, the more I was engaged with my club activities throughout the last 3 years, the more I was realizing that toastmasters is not only a platform to improve my public speaking skills, but it’s rather a broad vibrant community where I can develop my leadership skills, maximize my potential and enjoy unlimited personal growth.


With the wonderful EXCOM team I have with me this year, we are looking forward to keep Dubai Toastmasters Club as one of the best clubs in District 105 by bringing to our members a supportive learning experience mixed with enjoyment in a family-like atmosphere.

I have been living in the UAE for the last 20 years, enjoying the fabulous professional life of Dubai as a business hub in the Middle East and dreaming of starting my own business one day. I like to spend my leisure time playing with my 3 kids, or reading a book when they are fed up with me! I live by Rikki Rogers’ quote “Strength doesn’t come from what you can do, it comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn’t”
