At IIMB, we believe that there is a sincere need for people to improve their speaking and presentation skills. As future leaders of corporate India, it is our natural obligation to speak effectively and communicate our ideas clearly. FOCAL is a small step in that direction.

The mission of FOCAL is to provide a mutually supportive and positive learning environment in which every member has the opportunity to develop communication and leadership skills, which in turn foster self-confidence and personal growth.

FOCAL is the local IIMB chapter of TM International. We started in October 2004, with help from Prof. Bringi Dev, and a lot of help from Mr. Chendil Kumar & Mr. Francis Gama of our Mentor Club LA 1924 (U9496). We are a community chapter, and hence open only to members of the IIMB community.
