ACM #38 - Summary

Greetings Everyone,

ACM #38 has concluded last Friday (21 August 2009) and what a fantastic meeting it was. We had Nancy Liew, ACB ALB (D'Utama TMC & DU Adv TMC) who shared with us the abstract concept of how to 'Stress, Stretch, and Trash' - on how we manage our stress.

We then had our second speaker DTM Soh Fong Wai (D'Utama TMC, Klang Bilingual TMC & Metropolitan TMC) who played the role of a Training Director trying to proposed a solution that is Toastmasters to a board of Directors (the audience). The Q & A session was hilarious !!!!

CTM Kay Wong (Taman Indrahana TMC) was a fabulous facilitator who is not only a first timer to ACM but she managed it professionally as if she was a long time ACMer. During her summary section she surprised us by giving a 'self-evalulation' on HER OWN performance and showed us great skill in adaptability by quickly applying new ideas thought of between Speaker #1 and Speaker #2.

I wish to thank the following participants:

  • Joey (Klang Bilingual TMC)
  • Ivy Cheng (Klang Bilingual TMC & Metropolitan Bilingual TMC)
  • Richard Yeow (CIMA TMC)
  • Cheah Ai Ling (CIMA TMC)
  • Geoff Andrew (Premier Advanced TMC & KL Advanced TMC)
  • Gan Poh Lin (Kuantan TMC)
  • Goh Sheen Yee (D'Utama TMC)
  • Cheong Kuok Sum (TTDI TMC)
It's another great meeting to remember and I'm looking forward to the next meeting on 29th September 2009 (Tuesday) and our facilitator this time for sure is Bill Sim ACG (KL Adv TMC) !!!

Yours truly,
Johnson Yike
ACM Coordinator

Thank you - Appreciation Hi-Tea

Dear friends

Just a note to thank all of you for your presence and assistance during our Hi-Tea yesterday afternoon.
It would not be such a great success without all of you. The turn-out was unbelievable. Despite a Sunday whereby it is a family day, toastmasters keep pouring into our function. Even our busy bride-to-be was able to find time to drop by with her fiancee. thanks Lay Kun.

We were such a great team last year - I am going to miss you guys coming to my office for the council meetings, but I do hope we will continue to meet each other in our mastering journey.

Sincerely, I have learnt alot through all of you and have a lot to catch up to be at your level.

Congratulations to Irene for achieving the AG of the Year....To me, all AGs are winners!
.... Remember, winning an external award is not what you hold in your hands...it is the internal reward that you hold in your heart.
this was what I picked this up in one of the Toastmaster magazine and I truly believe in it.
Once again, thank you very much, terima kasih.
