The meeting itself
It is good to see some familiar faces again, welcome back Toastmaster Keong and Toastmaster Nurul!
Today we had an interesting array of table topics. Somehow everyone ends up talking about a very common topic… *wink wink* Remember, what happens in Table Topics stays in Table Topics.
As Toastmaster Manuel said, “Here, we encourage you and give you feedback to improve.” Our aim is to support each other as we build our confidence and speaking skills. It’ll be hard and at times terrifying, but know that you have the support of every member of the club. We’re just here to help each other.
Also, it looks like we will be using the auditorium instead of the boardroom for our future meetings. By the way, We miss you YC Yap! Haven’t seen you in awhile, do come to our next meeting if you’re free!
