Dubai: Tristar Group will celebrate the 100th session of its Toastmasters Club meeting with the “World Champion of Public Speaking” winner Mark Brown and two-time finalist Kwong Yang, along with other eminent speakers in Dubai.

More than 400 members from various Toastmasters Clubs in the UAE and Tristar employees will attend the event on the 23rd February at the Emirates Headquarters Auditorium on Airport Road.

The Toastmasters World Champion of Public Speaking 1995, Mark Brown, will deliver a key note address to the audience.  Originally from Kingston, Jamaica, Mark Brown migrated to the United States at the age of 18 with only $40 in his pocket and a dream for a better life. Today, he is one of the most popular inspirational speakers in the world.  In 1995, Mark defeated more than 20,000 contestants from 14 countries to win the illustrious Toastmasters World Championship of Public Speaking.

Participants will also get to hear from Kwong Yue Yang on improving their communications capability. An active Toastmasters participant, Kwong has moved up to the World Championships twice, taking 2nd place both times. He has spoken at events in many countries including China, Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Australia and the USA.

According to Eugene Mayne, Group Chief Executive Officer, Tristar Group, who will be speaking at the event: “When we thought of celebrating our milestone achievement of 100th Tristar Toastmasters Club meeting, we wanted to do something special for Toastmasters in the UAE who have devoted their time to improve communications and leadership abilities to not only improve their lives but also to encourage and motivate others to achieve their full potential. We decided to host a special evening with celebrated speakers to give back to the Toastmasters community in the UAE. The Tristar Toastmasters Club is now in its sixth year and all our employees who are members of the club have greatly benefited from the club’s supportive environment to develop their communication and leadership skills. Through this event, all participants will learn even further from the personal insights shared by Brown and Kwong.”
