The presenter - DTM K. Loghandran, 1st runner-up of the 2008 World Speech Championship in Canada
BREAKTHROUGH TO WORLD CLASS
15 December 2008 (Monday)
Dewan Seroja, KGPA
It was a fantastic evening with good weather. The majority of the attendees were on time to listen to our World Award Winner K Loghandran, DTM.
Dewan Seroja was fully occupied with 221 participants for this workshop. They comprised of Toastmasters from various clubs in Klang Valley, students, trainers and other professionals who came for the workshop. 50% of the attendees responded to the advertisement in the STAR Metro Diary where our President Mun Yuen faxed to them about two weeks before the event.
During the workshop, we had various queries on our club and about Toastmasters. Encik Ozain immediately submitted his membership application form during the workshop. The others who had interest to become members were in the pipeline.
The speaker in his top form managed to ‘move’ the audience and accomplished his objectives, i.e. to engage the audience with the nine emotions. The audience were certainly entertained as they received valuable input from K Loghandran, DTM.
As our club was a unique one where we have acting club, Spot-on Theatre, we have queries from other Toastmasters Club who are keen to join us as dual members.
I must specially, thank Daniel Teh, CTM who sold 60 tickets; Club President Mun Yuen who took a chance and faxed the advertisement to STAR early. Our club would like to express our thanks to STAR who assisted us by bringing in the members of community on the importance of Public Speaking to our workshop.
It was a great event where I received reservations practically everyday till the day of the event when STAR advertised our workshop. I certainly enjoyed organizing this event.
Thanks to Loretta Chin, Emcee of the Evening, who did a good job in introducing the Club and the speaker. Special thanks to KC Leong who is the photographer of the evening to capture the event for permanent remembrance.
Thank you to ALL who have made this event a success.
