The evening's Toastmasters of the Evening (TME) on 18th July 2017, Gerald Goh, CC, ALB, started the meeting with great zest by energizing the crowd with his enthusiasm and excitement.
It was followed by TM Safarul Izwan's CC3 speech project entitled "Turning a frown to a smile". He shared an anecdote of his nephew throwing a fit for not taking him to the park. Safarul went on to share how he diffused a wailing child by way of negotiation. With the right negotiation skills, Safarul confidently and easily stopped a child from crying further.
