The NIC Toastmasters Club has done wonders for me and as an aspiring communications practitioner, I’ve seen lots of personal growth. It also feels really good because now I will be representing my country at the regional contest in Haiti next month.” According to Mr. Roger Hare, the winner of the Tabletopics Contest, “although the competition was tough, I am happy to be called the champion of Tabletopics in Saint. Lucia. I am happy that I was able to win this trophy for the NIC Toastmasters Club. The atmosphere in that Club is simply amazing!”
On Wednesday April 25, 2018, together with the Public Service Toastmasters Club, the NIC Toastmasters Club hosted an open house display exhibition at the Blue Coral Mall. That, according to Mr. Cassius gave members of the public a chance to see what Toastmasters is all about. He said “at Toastmasters we’re all family and we’re always looking for ways to grow that family. The open house gave us the platform to showcase the clubs’ history, its achievements and outstanding and committed members.”
