18th December Chapter Meeting Sterlink

Good day Appointment Holders,

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for availing yourself this Christmas period and help make our 6th Chapter Meeting 2013/2014 a success! Pardon the long email


Thank you Geraldine for helping with the food catering and the preparation for gift exchange as well as manning the registration counter. Your serving heart was evident when you wanted to reach out to visitors and members and ensured they all have their door gift and number tag for the gift exchange.

Presidential Opening Address

Thank you Veronica for another opening address reminding us that giving is not about how much but about the love behind the giving. You reminded us to remember about family and to give back to our families who have given so much to us. Thank you for the very apt and timely message as we remember that this season is also about our family and loved ones.

Prepared Speeches

Thank you Shaun, Cindy and Mindy for taking the time to prepare for this segment. Delivering a prepared speech is never easy, having to put the time and energy behind crafting a speech with value to the audience, as well as the practice and preparation that goes behind it.

Thank you Shaun for sharing the 3 logic fallacies. Indeed, when we make decision, we tend to over-think and create funny scenarios in our mind. You have pointed them out and shared how to break free from it. It is a very deep topic and I look forward to hearing you share more and elaborate these points in your future speeches.

Thank you Cindy for reminding us what President Veronica has shared in the last chapter meeting during her opening speech. She reminded us that all of us makes a difference and you have shared stories and experiences, lessons and applications on how we can make a difference in the lives of other people. No man is an island and everything we do will make a difference in another person’s life. A very timely message this festive season.

Thank you Mindy for inspiring us with your toastmasters journey, from your P1, which you shared having so much encouragements to how DTM Michael Wee helped you decide to stay on and continue until now when you finish your final project. Your journey is an inspiration and motivation to us all. We will remember your promise to mentor anyone who needs help

Congratulations DTM Mind Ding on winning the Best Speaker for tonight.


Thank you Liang Siah, Michele,Serene and Rose for the Cake, Green Bean Soup and Sparkling Juice. It has added to the festivity and ensured that we are very satisfied during the meeting.

Speech Evaluations

Thank you Richard, Sin Tiong, Aileen and Michael for taking very valuable time out of your very packed schedule to join us this meeting and to help our members grow with your evaluation. It is not easy to put together an evaluation in such short time but you managed to gather really great points for growth for our members.

Thank you Richard for your evaluable insights to Shaun’s project. A very new member, you pointed out detailed learning points for him while staying very encouraging and affirming.

Thank you Sin Tiong for your very valuable pointers to Cindy. Completing her final project, you have helped her understand how all nine projects come together to form an inspiring speech.

Thank you Aileen for your very encouraging observation to my Toast. You have pointed out a very good point and I should have acceded to your suggestion. I will strive not to be lazy in that sense next time!

Thank you Michael for your detailed evaluation for Mindy. Having gone through the path to DTM, you are the best person to evaluate our next DTM. Your observations to her had definitely helped not only Mindy, but all of us, as we attempt a motivational speech.

Congratulations Sin Tiong for being voted the best evaluator for tonight!


Thank you Serene for paying attention to the timing while being focused on the speeches. Your faithfulness in ensuring the timing sequence is followed properly in order to help our speakers has been a testimony to your serving heart.
