Club Meeting - 25 June 2007

Speakers Dream Toastmasters Club presents the final meeting of the term 2006/2007 with the theme “The Best” on 25 June 2007.

Despite the wet and gloomy weather lingering around Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya, we managed to start the meeting with 10 members at 7.30 pm. With last minute changes in the meeting agenda, VPE Robert Hue was able to get the co-operation of new and senior members to take the roles at the twelveth hour. Elizabeth, our guest for the evening commended she enjoyed the whole meeting and did not notice the changes as it was carried out smoothly. The meeting progressed well and ended by 9.25 pm as indicated in the meeting agenda. After taking into account the feedback by past General Evaluators on keeping tab on the time management, our club has made it by ensuring the meeting ended on time.

The meeting started off with our Club President Gwendoline with her final Presidential Speech on being ‘The Best.’ Table Topics took the next slot with new and old members participating with enthusiasm.

The meeting progressed with 3 new members presenting their speech assignments. Lee Mun Wai presented his icebreaker’s speech where he spoke from the heart. No notes was seen, he was delighted to share with us his wonderful journey on planet. His title of his speech was “Nomad” where he had the opportunity to travel and live in various parts of the Malaysia and United Kingdom.

The second speaker was Leo Koo, where he reminded us on the keeping fit. He gave his version on owning a ‘prosperous body’ at one time of his life due entertaining his clients with constant nasi lemak. He reviewed his expenses and found out he needed to cater for new clothes to meet his new development of his body growing sideways. He took charge of the situation and made his decision to keep fit and maintain his expenses. Finally he succeeded and cautioned the audience to try to stay fit for the sake of better health.

Our third speaker Loretta spoke on the principles of shopping where our timekeeper Puspa almost missed her timing in switching on and off the timer lights as she got engrossed in Loretta’s interesting speech. One of the principles of shopping is you need to shop twice ie pre window shopping and on the day shopping to grab your goodies on the sale day. This idea was certainly a familiar tactic I use to shop in Isetan Member sale where I could shop during lunch time ie half an hour to grab the goodies.

The meeting ended with winners for :-

Best Table Topic Speaker – Caryl Hean

Best Assignment Speaker – Lee Mun Wai

Best Assignment Evaluator – Gwendoline Gwee, CL

The meeting ended on time as planned.

Kudos to Speakers Dream Toastmasters Club as we strive to improve our meetings for the benefit of our members.
