A club website has two main purposes, to attract new members and to keep current members informed.

The Lagoon Toastmasters Club website had been launched in the year 2004. Since the launch, Lagoon has been in the forefront in terms of using the web to spread the message of Toastmasters and to provide a learning forum for people wanting to improve on the Leadership and Communication skills.

Every search on the web brought new people to Lagoon wanting to reach their success. Indeed the website has been a powerful tool for the club. The website represents the club to the world.

Recently the website was re-launched, thanks to the persistence of the Club President Rakesh Dayal. As the VP public Relations Abdul Ravoof  said “If it was not for the continuous  calls and positive mindset of the President, I wouldn’t have done it. He had faith in my ability to bring out a brand new website. Moreover I wanted to have a more interactive website with the changing times. It surely worked out.”.

On hearing the news that Lagoon had won the award, an ecstatic VP PR said he was grateful to all the support he had received and for all the members in using and interacting in the website.

Indeed it is a great honour for Lagoon to win this prestigious award!

Well done President. Well done Lagoon!
