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 :)

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! :)

HELP University TMC organised their very first Speechcraft Workshop last weekend at Wisma HELP.
It was a successful workshop with a total of 21 participants bravely conquer their fear of public speaking.
This 2 days intensive workshop focuses on 3 core elements of a Toastmasters meeting to help others to be a better communicator.

DAY 1 
Registration started at 8.45am and the first ice breaking session took place soon, after the arrival of all participants. Everyone was so excited to learn, but we must first break the ice in order to know more about each other :)

Ice breaking session conducted by VPPR, Siew Li :

Then, participants were introduced to the first table topics session conducted by President, Jack Ying and he spiced things up by playing a game that matches the same card into this session.

Then, the first speaker, VPE, Bryan Cheong, CC, CL taught us about speech organisation, which is vital in crafting a winning speech!

Participants then were assigned to groups and started to prepare their first ice breaker speech!!
They were facilitated and evaluated by a group of experienced toastmasters :)


After lunch, Vincent Liew, gave us useful tips on Body Language.
He also showed us, how Charlie Chaplin, the best actor, could convey a story to the audience by just using body language! Interesting!

Then enthusiastic participants began crafting their 2nd speech focusing on body language and presenting it to the audience :)
Just so expressive,, 

It was a fruitful day, as we not only get to widen our network of friends but also to learn from each other, through the great speaker as well as evaluation session.

Day 1 has come to an end and we all looked forward to the next day :)
