"We in Qatar Toastmasters Club believe in learning and growing by developing strong bonds of friendship among the club members. We strive to create a comfort zone and maintain comradeship which proved to be a great contributor in our journey towards excellence. Our 431st meeting on Nov 20, 2016 was held on a dhow. A dhow is a traditional sailing vessel used in the Gulf region. The theme of the meeting was â€œOffshore Escapeâ€? and it intended to give members the opportunity to experience things differently. The vessel sailed away and anchored in the mid of the Arabian Sea little few kilometers away from the shore line. We had three members delivered prepared speeches and all of the members participated in fun-filled, team building and energizing activities through which they got the chance to communicate, to plan and to compete. Members were given the chance to unleash their creativity in groups by stepping out of the usual meeting context. One could see display of teamwork in full swing. In Qatar Toastmasters Club, we try to make priceless memories that last a lifetime."
