Taking on the Division

An overdue post ladies and gentlemen, but here it is - HELP UC Toastmasters Club at the Division W International Speech and Table Topics Contest 2009. This year's contest was held at Sunway University College.

The last time HELP UC came this far was during President John Lee's triumphant march to the District Evaluation contest. And it was his presence, guidance and coaching that inspired our 2 representatives this time - Gajendran for Table Topics and Jason Lim for International Speech.

Well, Jason seems to be focusing, Gajen might be wondering whether he shaved properly or not. Anyway, there was a good turnout and the crowd was ready for quality speeches and table topics.

The competition was stiff ladies and gentleman, but we are proud to announce that for Table Topics, our champion Gajendran emerged as the FIRST RUNNER UP!

As for the International Speech category, Jason Lim emerged as the CHAMPION! 

Here he is being presented with the challenge trophy flanked by (from left) Area W2 governor Ernest Wong, Gajendran, John Lee and Division Governor Dr. Sharon Tong.

Gajen and Jason are very pleased with themselves, but John is already plotting the next round. Nonetheless, we stayed true to our student roots by ending the day with a round of picture-taking (aka camwhoring)

Members of HELP UC Toastmasters Club, may this be a common sight for many more years to come:

Kuching and the District Conference here we come!

4th April

Today, our club was moved from our usual meeting place, nonetheless we had an animated and productive meeting nonetheless.

We had visitors from DKC Toastmasters Club with one guest even giving a speech. At the same time, we had the great honour of hosting the Division B International Speech Champion Dennis Wee who gave his competition speech "Find The Shark" It was indeed an educational meeting for our members.

At the same time our own members did not shirk from the challenge. Micheal, Jack Oh and Joanne all gave speeches - advancing the educational purposes of our club. 

May HELP UC move from strength to strength!

Here is the day's Best Table Topics AND Assignment Speaker - Micheal Chow!!

And we have President John very happy about something, he usually is not this cheerful.

Anyway ladies and gentlemen, our next meeting will be 18th April 2009 and it will be back at our usual meeting place DSA, Mainblock. For enquiries, contact any of our committee members. Hope to see you there!
