DTAC Chair's Message

It is a great opportunity for me to be able to lead the DTAC 2021 team. I had the privilege of being associated with the previous 2 DTAC’s that took place in Oman. In 2014, I was the event coordinator at the Al Bustan Palace and Ritz Carlton Hotel as well and in 2018 I was the Finance Chair for the event held at the Grand Millennium Hotel. This DTAC for sure is going to be a different one from the previous DTAC’s, because we will only be meeting online from the comfort of our homes, due to the pandemic situation globally. When I was assigned the responsibility of DTAC 2021, I was not sure whether the event will be held on a physical or virtual platform.

Getting people together is not easy, but our preparations in the first few weeks and months are critical, as people’s opinion is formed quickly and this can have a major impact on whether the team ultimately delivers results. We have set up team norms, established clear goals and have created an environment where everyone feels comfortable and motivated to contribute towards this event. However, we are not going to be low on our passion and enthusiasm as this annual event which online, and I hope that this event remains virtual for the last time

Personally, I would be gaining knowledge by interacting with the experienced and professional team members with different skill sets. My job as the DTAC Chair will be to be approachable, also reorganize and rethink strategies to achieve the best results for the Toastmasters Fraternity and thus successfully deliver the DTAC 2021. Stay blessed, stay healthy and stay safe.
