40 First District children taught public speaking techniques

Some forty children from the First District are now more equipped with the techniques of public speaking, thanks to a collaboration of the Tortola Toastmasters and the First District Committee.

According to First District Representative and Premier and Minister of Finance, Honourable Andrew A, Fahie (R1) on his Facebook page on December 9, 2020, with great commitment, the 40 First District youngsters logged on virtually every Sunday at 4:00 pm for five consecutive weeks to learn from the Tortola Toastmasters about the art of public speaking.

He said guest speakers, as well as Toastmasters Members, demonstrated and transferred several practical skills and techniques necessary for personal and professional development.

Premier Andrew A. Fahie thanked everyone who participated to make the public speaking initiative a resounding success, adding that BVILOVE is investing in the youth.

According to the Premier, many of the participants were also afforded the opportunity to put into practice their lessons learned through speeches and oral delivery.

“They learned as they were critiqued by the Toastmasters Members. Our YOUTH performed superbly. BVILOVE is investing in our Youth,” Premier Fahie said as he thanked everyone who participated to make this initiative a resounding success.

“Team Work always makes the Dream Work! As we continue to move forward in this ‘New Regular,’ living and working with COVID-19, all youth participants received e-certificates.

“Together we will always achieve more,” Premier Fahie stated.
