With the theme, JUST DO IT! We're reminded that it's almost the end of the year 2012.


Don't wait any longer! DO IT NOW, DO IT RIGHT!


We had guests from INTEC TMC, FRIENDSHIP TMC, TAYLORS UNI TMC and MONEY & YOU TMC on this joyful Saturday morning!

6 enthusiastic speakers and evaluators rock the stage with their superb speeches and evaluations!

2 of our HELP TMC members, Michelle Koo and Tan Shu Ting, finally broke the ice, with their very first CC#1 speech! WELL DONE for the courage, in taking the very first step! :)
They were evaluated by Christian and Siew Li, respectively.

Edward, then shared with us his CC#6 speech entitled "when enough is never enough", he taught us not to be greedy! So peeps out there, don't be greedy especially when you're in a buffet, don't take a mountain high level of food, if you can't finish it!! THINK of those, who are starving and dying of hunger! Edward was evaluated by the very kind yet precise evaluator from TAYLORS UNI TMC - Shaun Liew

INTEC toastmasters club, BEH YUAN YE, gave his ACM#2 - The Radio-Talk show - Studying medicine at IMU. He's currently a year one student at IMU, and shared with us the IMU degrees offered to persue medicine and the journey in obtaining a less costly yet prestigious degree.
He had a role play with Siew Li-as the HELP FM radio talk show host, entertained the audience!
There was also a Q&A session at the end of the talk show where audience (so called HELP FM listeners) called in to ask Mr Beh some questions on IMU :) Jack Ying, President of HELP TMC, then gave his views and suggestions on how to further improve Yuan Ye's speech :)

Up next, Eugene Lau, CC, CL, member of HELP TMC, gave his ACM#3 I WANT TO WIN!
He gave us 8 tips on how to negotiate with someone, such examples are to first know what are the other party wants and needs, to lead the discussion, best time to negotiate is in the MORNING, when people seems to be more relaxed and happy and to appreciate the other party.
He had a role play with Siew Li, as his landlord, which he has been renting the house for 2 years.
Siew Li, the landlord decides to increase the rent from RM700 to RM850, and he managed to negotiate to a  win win rent rate - RM800 per room.
Eugene was evaluated by our guests - the very honest and seasoned pretty evaluator, Jacy Wee, CC, CL from MONEY & YOU TMC.

Last but not least, we have the all time favourite speaker - VPE Bryan Cheong, to deliver his ACM#9 speech, MALAYSIA-THE BEST.
He entertained the crowd (situation : at the Maybank annual dinner) with his endless jokes revolving Malaysians, the place, food, and culture. He managed to keep the atmosphere alive with the full energy given to his speech - packed with actions, and expressions. He even ended his speech with a song, with the tune of JUSTIN BIEBER'S "BOYFRIEND", he changed the lyrics - related to MALAYSIA !
Bryan was evaluated by our guest - the lovely, pretty and ever sincere evaluator, Alexandra Lau, CC,CL President of FRIENDSHIP TMC!

Great job, to all role players - who did a fabulous job as they are mostly first timers in their roles.

Albert Ng - Language Evaluator
Denise - AH counter

We're back with day 2! More courageous and enthusiastic speakers will take the stage and mesmerize the crowd, with their hidden talent - the great speaking skills :)

The 2nd day workshop started off with a table topic session, conducted by VPPR, Siew Li and evaluated by IPP, Jason Moi ACS, CL.
All participants were given a chance to do the table topics this morning! The order was set by the musical chair game, similarly, passing on "chicken little" while the music plays, until it stops! the person holding "chicken little" will have to to the table topics :) don't worry, the sky isn't falling yet!

Our 3rd speaker, IPP Jason Moi ACS, CL, then took the stage to share with us one important element in a speech - THE VOCAL VARIETY - which also gives more impact to a speech :)

Then, Stephanie Teoh,CC, CL, an experienced toastmasters all the way from Taylor's University Toastmasters Club, gave us some tips on evaluation. As the saying goes, evaluation is the breakfast for all champions. Therefore, it is vital that we learn to evaluate, by doing so, we would be more certain on how to improve our speech as well as not to repeat the same mistake all over again :)

She first warmed us up by dancing to Macarena after the heavy lunch :P

Our last speaker came all the way from MidValley Toastmasters Club, Timothy Nakayama, ACB shared with us how to work with words. Simple yet understandable usage of words, as well as usage of triads :)

Participants were then given 40 minutes to prepare their final speech for this workshop. They were to deliver a speech revolving - " how to say it " for 3-5 minutes :)
Wei Wei
Vincent Khoo                                                     Gabriel Mak
Pui Shan                                             Edward Boey
Rachel Saw                                                       Poh Kim
Silas Liew                                                    Li Peng

The participants were evaluated by a team of seasoned evaluators namely, Timothy Nakayama, Rajveer Singh, Jack Ying, James Kan, Bryan Cheong, Siew Li, and Zoe Lo.

Excellent speech given by all the speakers, *round of applause*
Though it may just be their third time giving a speech in front of such a big crowd, they portrayed more confidence speaking in front of the public as compared to day 1. Indeed, practices makes perfect. In order to reduce the butterflies in the stomach when you get up on stage next time, believe in yourself! stop hesitating your ability and start practicing now!

After the award presentation ceremony, participants and speakers exchanged contacts details to keep in touch and not forgetting, a picture paints a thousand words - group photo! :)
