Next Meeting: 21 May 2015 (Theme: Help Me, Help You!) - Ready, Set, GO!

Dear D'Utama Toastmasters and friends,

I hope you all had a fabulous fun-filled time celebrating Mothers' Day over the weekend. Our parents are truly the only ones that has seen us through our individual lives, helping us and molding us from the start so that we can be the person who we are today.

After our parents have laid the foundation, it is then up to us to find opportunities to grow. Our club is one of these opportunities, and from the immortal phrase from the movie 'Jerry Maguire', the theme for our meeting on 21 May 2015 is 'Help Me, Help You!

We will start the ball rolling by inviting a Special Guest Speaker, Robert Ram, DTM to share about his knowledge, wisdom and experience about "The Art of Effective Evaluation" during the first half of the meeting.  Robert Ram is the current District 51 Champion of Humorous Speech Contest & Evaluation Speech Contest. He was Division E Governor for the term 2012 - 2013, and during that term, Division E achieved 'President's Distinguished Division' status. A humble and dedicated Toastmaster who is ever ready to assist the growth of others.

After the break, we will resume our usual meeting format of Assignment Speech Speakers & Evaluations session.

The meeting will be at our regular venue of Room 1.05 Kolej Damansara Utama, starting from 7:30PM to 10:00PM.

(Updated 17th May) ALL OPPORTUNITIES HAVE BEEN TAKEN UP! Now it's time to come together, learn new things, meet new friends and help each other GROW!!
