Notes 23rd January 2018

TM Sharon Lim took her first role as Timer & Tip. Sharon proved to be adept and is a fast learner.

Congratulations to our President, Pooja Shivanand, CC, ALB, for winning the Best Speaker Ribbon.

Well done to Table Topics Master, TM Kelvin Lai, on his first role this term. The Table Topics challenged our speakers to speak off the cuff.

Also congratulations to both TM Suneeta Pathak and TM Philip Mooi for joint-winning  of the Best Table Topics ribbon. We hope they will join the contest in March.

Congratulations to Rahmat Tarsat, CC, for winning the Best Evaluator ribbon. Thank you for making us aware of when we use our 'ahs' and 'uhms'.

In the closing session, Lai Ling Ling, CC, shared her experience on giving a workshop in the Malay language. She pulled it off even when she felt her Malay was not good enough. We commend her effort. Do sign up for speaking engagements outside of Toastmasters to give back to the community.

There will be a workshop next week (3oth January) on getting your message across. The presenter is none other than our President of the Brunei Advanced Speakers Club (BASC), Rozana Yunos, ACG, CL. The workshop represents a chance for you to enhance your writing skills before the upcoming contest.
