Opening Address – Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

On behalf of our Kowloon-Singapore Toastmasters Club (KSTMC), I wish you have a fun-packed Merry X’mas and a Happy 2008!

Opening Address – 22 Dec 07 chapter meeting cum Christmas Party

Good Evening!
Fellow Toastmasters and Friends!
Welcome to Kowloon-Singapore Toastmasters Club!

I’d like to keep my opening address short and sweet.
It is because we will only have one hour and thirty minutes for this meeting. After that, we will hold our Christmas Party.

Today is a special chapter meeting. Why?
This time we do not conduct our meeting at Kowloon Club.
Instead, we hold our chapter meeting cum Christmas Party at Mak’s home.
Mak, thank you for your everything! Aspen Heights is such a nice place!

Five of our members including myself are going to deliver their prepared speeches.
This is a very special event! Why? We have family members here to support us as we give our speeches, including my husband Alex.

Among all the festivals, I like Christmas the most!
How about you?
I think Christmas is a time for joy, a time for sharing and a time for gathering!
Christmas is a special occasion for fun and fellowship!

I hope we all have fun today, giving speeches, listening to presentations and making new friends!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to You!
May All Your Dreams Come True!

Opening Address – Your Expectations on Joining Toastmasters

Good evening! Fellow Toastmasters and Friends!
Welcome to our chapter meeting!

Let me ask you a question.
What are your dreams? Your Big Dreams?

To Earn More, Work Less and Enjoy Life!
To be famous!
To save the world!

Whatever your dreams may be, I think you do have a desire to be a better speaker.
 That’s why we are here tonight to practise our public speaking skills. Right?

Ask yourself why you join toastmasters.

To overcome your fear of public speaking?
To speak well at work for better chance of advancement in your career?
To make more friends?
Or just to be a better speaker.

To what extent would you like to your achievements in toastmasters?

Do you still remember the time when you did your Project 1 Ice Breaker?
How much have your speaking skills improved?

Do you want to win the next speech contest?
How would you like to be a professional speaker and get paid to speak?

It is not a dream! It is achievable!
I know some toastmasters can achieve their dreams as professional speakers or trainers.

The key is that you need to have a target. You need to take action. You need to work hard!

Practice is the key to helping you improve in public speaking.

On your way home, think about your expectations on joining toastmasters.
Then take the next step to being a better speaker!

If you are not a toastmaster yet, I would like to show you a video “Welcome to Toastmasters!”

Let us experience Eduardo’s story. Watch how he evolves from nervous novice to dynamic presenter with the help of some friends in Toastmasters. Discover how the Toastmasters Program can help everyone to become better communicators.

Next time, please bring your friends or colleagues to visit your next chapter meeting.
Then, they have a chance to learn how they can be benefited from the Toastmasters Program!
