CONGRATULATIONS Champions and GOOD LUCK in the Area Level Table Topics and International Speech Contests 2014 this Saturday, 8th March 2014

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the role players for making sure the event runs smoothly.  Without the Contest Chair to chair the contest, timers to keep time, the judges to judge, the tally counters to calculate, and the sergeant-at-arms to control and manage the room, “it would just be the speakers speaking to the walls” to quote our President Fia Iskandar's words

Kudos to all the speakers for taking up the challenge on competing.  Speaking in a contest setting is very different than speaking in a normal meeting environment. You learn so much more about yourself and sometimes you might even discover something new that you never knew existed in yourself, maybe discovering your hidden ability to sing like a pigeon? Entering a competition is not just about the trophies, it is what you make out of your experience that has a deeper value. Getting a trophy is a plus point, however if you did not take home a trophy, never ever give up. Keep on trying and there is always something new to 
learn each time.

In toastmasters we learn by doing. Just by being there, whether you are a role player or a speaker, the knowledge and experience you gained are very precious.  So congratulations to all for being there.

I would like to extend my deepest appreciation to the people who have encouraged and mentored me to take up this role as organizing chairperson. Thank you President Fia, Vice President Education Vijay and my mentor Nora Ridzwan for trusting me with this role even though I am only a couple of months old as a KKTMC member.  One of the many good things about KKTMC is it helps you grow professionally, and at the same time it appreciates your talents and personalities. I learned a lot as the organizing chair that I am sure I wouldn’t learn anywhere else.  Thanks a bunch for the opportunity.

Attached are the some photos of the contest. 

Best Regards,
Kamilia Kamaruzaman
