In-coming Club Officers

Dear Esteemed Members,

I am so happy that 10th Anniversary and 11th Installation Nite of our club on Last Satruday was a GREAT Success. Close fellowship, good food, wonderful venue, exciting events like lucky draws, the creative game by VPE Mun Yuen which made us laughs. Do you realised that the games had allowed many of us to act. The actings were funny and really exhaust the wit of the members. I truly enjoyed that session.

Club President, Robert Hue

In the Club environment, we normally have some barriers among us due to our background, age difference, level of our economic/social achievement etc. But during the nite, I personally felt that each of the members were so close to me that I felt like in a family with brothers and sisters around me. Our barriers, if there was any, collapsed like "Berlin War".

During the nite, we also had the opportunity to meet our old friends, like Khalyani who brought her whole family, Past President Seelan and David Anthony. Also, Norashikin who rejoined us as Club member.
For those members who were not able to join us in the Wonderful event, I wish you can join us in future event to experience the fantastic fellowship as we had last Saturday nite.

This year the Toastmasters of the Year Award goes to the dedicated and committed VPE Chow Mun Yuen.

The event would not be a success, if not because of the effort of the followings persons, whom I wish to say a BIG Thank you:-
IPP Gwen, CTM as the Organising Chairman
Success for good turnout, sumptuous dinner, lucky draws and coordinate 2 in one event. I was surprise that the prize of the Luck Draw was of such value. Thanks for your effort to secure sponsors. I really admire your ability to get such a great venue for such good price.

Past President, Loghan, DTM
For arranging the technical aspect to allow us to view the video on team spirit and our drama comedy Flagrante Delicto. Gave us an entertaining evening. GREAT JOB.

Past President, Celine Teh, DTM
Her eloquent citation of the Poem had add colors to the nite.

You wrote a GREAT Poem to describe the Presidents. Each description fits the president well and also witty. .

Area W3 Governor, Lim Hin Chong, ATMS

Additionally, also generously contributed to the gifts and lucky draws. Finally, all those who are present, the event would not materialise without you. A BIG Thank you. Hope that you enjoyed the nite as much as I had.

The Shining Star

Celebration of 10th Anniversary of Speakers' Dream Toastmasters Club (formerly called Institute Bank-Bank Malaysia Toastmasters Club)

By DTM Celine Teh

Where’s the Star that was birthed 10 years ago?
Where’s the IBBM KL Toastmasters Club now?
It catapulted into the District 51 galaxy eager to go!
Shining so brilliantly it dazzled many a hearts with a Wow!

Well, things have changed for better of course
Since IBBM KL became known as Speakers Dream
This shining star has proceeded along its own course
Providing exciting meetings to help members achieve their dreams

Our mentor Wu is not around to hear our glowing report
But we know that we have done her proud
Ten years have passed what have we to report
A list of shining achievements to make any mentor proud

In leadership achievements, we have produced 4 Distinguished Toastmasters in succession
At the district level, a District Secretary, Treasurer and 4 Area Governors have served loyally
At the International Speech contest level, K Loghandran emerged as the District Champion
In the Distinguished Club program, we achieved President’s Distinguished Club victoriously

This shining star has embraced change with much delight
From an in-house club it has become a community club
From STAR seminars it has produced comedy shows that delight
From an underground meeting place it has moved to a golf club

As the Star continues shining ever so bright
Distinguished Club status will always be in sight
By meeting educational and membership goals, we will be alright
Together let us join Robert and team as new frontiers we will sight!

Lots of guts and full of fun
Fiercely loyal with ideas by the tons Gwendoline Gwee, CTM

Unleash his leadership to cart
Membership to break the club at its seams Robert Hue, CTM
