CIPM Sri Lanka – the na­tion’s leader in hu­man re­source man­age­ment, to­gether with the CIPM Toast­mas­ters Club or­gan­ised a Speechcraf­t pro­gramme with the ob­jec­tive of en­hanc­ing the com­mu­ni­ca­tion and lead­er­ship skills of HR pro­fes­sion­als.

The grand fi­nale of the Speechcraf­t pro­gramme was held re­cently at the Mem­bers’ Lounge of the CIPM Sri Lanka head of­fice ‘HR House’ in Colombo 5.

CIPM Sri Lanka Gov­ern­ing Coun­cil Hony. Sec­re­tary Ken Vi­jayaku­mar graced the oc­ca­sion as the chief guest with guest of hon­our - Hony. Edi­tor of CIPM Coun­cil-group Capt. Manoaj Kep­petipola. CIPM Busi­ness School Di­rec­tor G. Weerathung­a ac­com­pa­nied by the mem­bers of the CIPM Toast­mas­ters Club and pro­gramme par­tic­i­pants was present at the grand fi­nale.

“It is es­sen­tial that young and as­pir­ing man­agers de­velop their com­mu­ni­ca­tion and lead­er­ship skills. We have or­gan­ised the Speechcraf­t pro­gramme to give a well-struc­tured op­por­tu­nity for the mem­bers of the CIPM Toast­mas­ters Club to de­velop and hone their skills not only in the area of com­mu­ni­ca­tion and lead­er­ship but also in an ar­ray of other im­por­tant ar­eas vi­tal for pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment,” said CIPM Sri Lanka Pres­i­dent Dham­mika Fer­nando. Eigh­teen out of twenty par­tic­i­pants who com­pleted the re­quired seven pub­lic speak­ing train­ing ses­sions con­ducted by CIPM Toast­mas­ters Club were hon­oured at the grand fi­nale. The glam­orous event was fur­ther high­lighted by a speech con­test among par­tic­i­pants which show­cased their newly ac­quired speak­ing skills.

Speechcraf­t pro­gramme is a proven and tested method of speech train­ing de­liv­ered to en­thu­si­as­tic young men and women for de­vel­op­ing their com­mu­ni­ca­tion and lead­er­ship skills where Toast­mas­ters fol­low a struc­ture de­signed by Toast­mas­ters In­ter­na­tional (TMI). The pro­gramme also fo­cuses on lead­er­ship and char­ac­ter de­vel­op­ment, which is brought about by ac­tive par­tic­i­pa­tion in con­duct­ing, con­trol­ling, mon­i­tor­ing and eval­u­at­ing the train­ing ses­sions (meet­ings) by the par­tic­i­pants them­selves un­der the sup­port­ive en­vi­ron­ment pro­vided by Toast­mas­ters.

The Speechcraf­t pro­gramme was launched by CIPM Toast­mas­ters Club un­der the guid­ance of CIPM Pres­i­dent Dham­mika Fer­nando. The CIPM Toast­mas­ters Club will be reach­ing its 10th suc­cess­ful mile­stone by June 2019. Club mem­bers ex­pressed their plea­sure on the progress by em­pha­sis­ing that it was a priv­i­lege to cel­e­brate their long jour­ney since the in­cep­tion by giv­ing back to so­ci­ety with the Speechcraf­t pro­gramme, which reached out to the CIPM stake­hold­ers.

As Toast­mas­ter mem­bers, they have ex­pe­ri­enced the level of con­fi­dence and bound­less op­por­tu­ni­ties a per­son gets, when com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills are en­hanced. There­fore, they had cho­sen the theme ‘The sky is not the limit, when the whole galaxy is out there’ for the re­cent Speechcraf­t pro­gramme. The mem­bers of the CIPM Toast­mas­ters Club con­sider this ac­tiv­ity as an op­por­tu­nity to trans­form the Toast­mas­ters value propo­si­tion of in­tegrity, re­spect, ser­vice and ex­cel­lence.

CIPM is af­fil­i­ated to the Asia Pa­cific Fed­er­a­tion of Hu­man Re­source Man­age­ment and to the World Fed­er­a­tion of Peo­ple Man­age­ment As­so­ci­a­tions. CIPM, be­ing a pro­fes­sional in­sti­tute is also a con­stituent mem­ber of the Or­gan­i­sa­tion of Pro­fes­sional As­so­ci­a­tions Sri Lanka.
