On the Leaders Tribe forum held on Wednesday in the capital Sarajevo, which is regularly being organised by the IT company Softhouse Balkans, the Toastmasters Club Sarajevo together with Toastmasters International and La Terra Nostra spoke about the importance of public speaking for managers and leaders. The event gathered around 60 participants from various branches and hosted some extraordinary speakers from the international arena.

Topics, such as the experiences of good governance in BiH and the importance of governing public speech for those in leadership positions, were discussed. The message of this forum was that talent is only a small part that builds a successful speaker. Meetings with fears, training and concern for the audience were highlighted by the speakers as some of the key factors for success in this area.

Alma Palo Alicehic, director of Checkify AG, and the La Terra Nostra Foundation Launcher, presented the example of the Philanthropy field as the importance of managing public speaking skills in activating to include other people’s support to volunteer or financially support an idea that you firmly believe in.

Tim Birch, an experienced Project Manager from the IT sector in Switzerland, and former President of the Toastmasters Club in Zurich, presented the different models of leadership through his speech. He inspired participants to think about what team needs, what kind of leadership and how to achieve their goals on an effective level.

Edin Mehic, an entrepreneur from BiH, founder of the company posao.ba and Networks Sarajevo, and one of the most prominent personalities in the BH-start-up-scene, spoke about the importance of communication in every part of the business. Following his way of thinking as an important key to success is the constant encounter of personal fear and exposure to what we initially consider discomfort.

At the end, one of the shining stars of the evening was Lesley Stephenson, an expert and public speaking and coach on the international market, a long-standing winner of the European Toastmasters Competition in speaking. Lesley gave a thorough professional speech to the audience, offering audience an opportunity to see that investing in preparation and great interest in personal development builds world-class speakers. Lesley also spoke about her project management in Ethiopia and what lessons she took from there, sending out a message to the Bosnian youth to Speak Up! If they want to change.
