My First Time - 3 Jan 13

The meeting was indeed a great experience for me as it was my first time playing a Toastmaster of the Evening (TME) role. Preparation part was a bit of work, organizing the schedule and arranging for role players. Then preparing for my script to be used throughout the meeting.

The meeting was good with high enthusiasm level among the speakers. Time management was good as we finished at 10pm sharp. All in all it was a worthwhile effort as i learned to be a better emcee so to speak, increase my comfort in front of the audience as I repeatedly go up to introduce the speakers. If need be I wouldn't mind doing it a 2nd time later in the year.
