Your Highness, Hats off to your leadership skills!


On behalf of the three Tamil Toastmasters Clubs, a big thank you for initiating the International Tamil Toastmasters Speech Contest. It was truly a learning experience. Thanks for the opportunity. Our event was featured in MediaCorp Tamil TV News, MediaCorp Radio FM96.8 and Tamil Murasu (Tamil daily).

Once again, thanks much :)

Dear OC Yiang Ping,


Thank you for organizing such a wonderful convention.


Hearty congratulations to you and your army of committee members, for an excellent job.

All of you deserve a good pat on your back.


Suntec was a good choice and I am sure you can organize an International Toastmasters Convention here in the future.  After all we have seasoned organizers so perhaps you can bid for it in the future.


On the whole everything went off smoothly.  The Suntec Chefs did an excellent job too and everyone enjoyed all the meals.  Our compliments to them.


Congratulations to you and Michael again for a fantastic convention.


Best regards

Dear Fellow Toastmasters,


At the recent D80 Convention we heard outstanding speeches from among the world’s best speakers. We participated directly or indirectly in some events as well. And we witnessed some of our fellow members from Raffles Town Toastmasters showcasing their talents too in various forms and capacities. We could say we stood tall. Wearing that quality label associated with our Raffles Town was ipso facto an instant credential for any and all of us present.


We had Lynda (Editorial/Publicity/Opening Ceremony), William (Sponsorship, Venue/Hospitality/ Logistics), Jenny (Venue/Hospitality/Logistics), Angie (Venue/Hospitality/Logistics/Credentials), Catherine (Welcome Night/Gala Dinner/Credentials) who either led or joined a sub-committee to support the Convention. They played their individual roles and leadership skills at their own times and expense off stage, and remained incognito. Well a few even went on stage to display their agility skills in combination with the rest to show their collective efforts, as shown in the attached picture (for Lynda – in striking red, Angie – in brilliant yellow and Jenny – pure white, front row right). There were there really beyond the call of the duty. They had their joys in the dances yet they all made it to wear that Quality Label…


Join me in congratulating a job well done to all these high fliers from Raffles Town Toastmasters! Cheers.


Kim-See Teo, ATM-S, CL, RP

Charter President (2003-2004) Raffles Town Toastmasters

Good Day Ms Tay,

The attachment is the MAD Evaluation form as requested.

Best Regards
