With the meeting theme of Happy Go Lucky, everyone was in a mood for a positive and easy going meeting for tonight. We are happy to have Ng Lay Choo, ACB, CL as our Madam General Evaluator of the night. As per normal meeting, the night started off with president's address from our club president, Liew Siew Yin, CC, CL. In her address, she sent a message that a happy go lucky attitude will keep us up when we are down, and ensure that we are always in a positive perspective for things that happen around us.
KL Loh, ATM-G was in charge of the Invocation session tonight. He shared that we as leaders to people in companies, we must embody a set of values that will guide us in everything that we do Values like honesty, integrity and transparency serve as the moral guide to a company practices, therefore they are crucial to the success and growth of a company.
To go along with the theme of the night, the Table Topics Master, Hoo Sze Ling (who is also a guest from D' Utama Toastmasters Club) has kept the audience entertained with topics like 'Wealth or Happiness, which one is more important?', 'What is the happiest moment in your life?', amongst others. The speakers were great, as all of them had demonstrated their impromptu speaking skills and spoke right about their given topics.
For the project speech session, we had in total 4 speakers tonight. Ginny Leng, TM spoke about how she made certain decisions in her life, and Vince Kek, TM spoke about his romantic love story. Both projects were from the Competent Communication manual. For the more advanced speakers, Abdul Aziz Youp, CTM presented an entertaining speech on (mis) communication. In short, it was about how communication could go wrong and why. Last but not least, Victor Wan, CC, CL presented useful facts and tips for the audience tonight in the topic of will writing. He advised the audience get a will done up as soon as possible for the benefits of your loved ones. As Francis Ng, DTM has also put it, "Don't let your loved ones go through hell when you are in heaven". Interesting. As an audience and Grammarian tonight, I'd say all the speakers have given their best in their speeches, and all have received positive and enlightening feedback from their speech evaluators.
In the evaluation part, the club has received some very positive feedback from the guests as well as from Mdm. General Evaluator tonight. From the comments, they are pleased with the comfortable setting of the club (except for the occasional noise from renovation next door tonight), the warm welcome offered to guests, the properly drawn up agenda (thanks to our VPE, EK Yeo and President Liew Siew Yin for this), the persisting high turn up rate of members for club meeting (yay!), and last but not least, the VERY famous and delicious nasi lemak (big thanks to Paul Tan for this one)! Thanks to all for your helpful comments and suggestions, one thing for sure is that we will work hard to keep it up!
