KKTMC International Speech and Table Topics Contests (18th Feb 2011)

Dear Fellow Toastmasters and Guests,

Please join me to congratulate the winners of the KKTMC International Speech and Table Topics Contest held on 18th Feb 2011:
International Speech Contest:
Champion: Joanna Liew (Never Say Never)
1st Runner-Up: Jamie Chieng (It’s the Little Things)
2nd Runner-Up: Lily Chin (life is Unexpected)

Table Topics Contest:
Champion: Sivakumar Kumaresan
1st Runner-Up: Lily Chin
2nd Runner-Up: Karis Chong

A huge round of applause to all 6 International Speech contestants and 5 Table Topics contestants! Yes, indeed our speakers stirred us to prepare for the unexpected, adapt to surroundings with heart and mind, champion for world peace, never give up on our goals and while doing all that, never say never! What an inspiring evening it was for everyone present. Even the Table Topic question What Doesn’t Kill Us Makes Us Stronger was inspiring. Our contestants certainly proved that entering a speech contest indeed did not kill them but made them stronger! :)

So congratulations to ALL of our contestants for embracing the challenge to take one step forward, one level higher to becoming a better speaker. 

Special thanks to:
Organising Chairperson TM Christopher Shaw and his team for making this annual event another successful one.
Contest Chairs Sylvia Maten, ACS (Table Topics) and Melissa Betsy, CC (International Speech) for leading such entertaining sessions
Chief Judge Christine Yap, DTM for briefing and guiding the judges and role players

Our winners will be representing the Club to the Area K1 Level Contest on 25th February 2011 at Ahmad Nifsu Theatre, UMS @ 7.30pm. For more information, please contact Area Governor Jasmine Leong. Be sure to be there to support our champions!

Let’s continue to Move, Express and Inspire! :)

Yours in Toastmasters,
