The First Toastmasters Club of Qatar


Doha Toastmasters Club (DTM), the first club that introduced “toast mastering” to Qatar, was born in the year 1996 and chartered on 1st January 1997. The credit for starting the club goes to Manoj Megchiani, who had set sail to Qatar from Bahrain to start his own business and also to form the first toastmasters club in Qatar.

Toastmasters International is a world leader in communication and leadership development. Members improve their speaking and leadership skills by attending one of the clubs such as” Doha Toastmasters”.

The world needs leaders. Leaders head families, coach teams, run businesses and mentor others. These leaders must not only accomplish, they must communicate. By regularly giving speeches, gaining feedback, leading teams and guiding others to achieve their goals in a supportive atmosphere, leaders emerge from the Toastmasters program. Every Toastmasters journey begins with a single speech. During their journey, they learn to tell their stories. They listen and answer. They plan and lead. They give feedback—and accept it. Through our community of learners, they find their path to leadership.
