Tay Jia Ling | Assistant Director (Products) [Intake 11]

I have learnt how to prepare for a presentation and understand the importance of body language and vocal variety. CK is able to point out my strengths and weaknesses.

Chua Soo Rui | Chartered Accountant (Audit Partner) [Intake 11]

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Nervousness always caught the best of me when I speak in public. It is a common scenario for me when I deliver my prepared speech that it will be mixed-up in the middle, I will be lost in transition and in the end I could not deliver the message that I wanted to convey.

The Public Speaking Course that Lion City Toastmasters Club offers taught me useful techniques on how to overcome my nervousness. The personalize approach that Mr. Ting Chee Kheong provides in this course had made me acknowledge not only my strong points but my weak points as well and the tips that Mr. CK gave are very useful in addressing these weaknesses.

To those who are out there, hiding in their closet because of fear of public speaking, I encourage you to join The Lion City Toastmasters Club Public Speaking Course because sooner or later you will have your share of speaking in public. When the time comes and you were caught unprepared, I would like you to remember this…

It’s not the things that you’ve done,

But the things that you’ve left undone

That will give a bit of heartache

By the setting of the sun.

- Margaret Sangster

Silver Dela Rosa - Senior Quantity Surveyor [Intake 8]

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In the past, I find myself fumble, at a lost of words and nervous during presentation and networking sessions.

After attending Public Speaking Course, it gives me the confidence to speak and I am less nervous meeting people now. The course provide good information on how to prepare a speech and taught me how to deliver and engage with audience.

Thank you Mr CK Ting for your encouragement and guidance.

Lynn Aw | Deputy Senior Marketing Manager [Intake 8]

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lion City Toastmasters Club's Public Speaking Course provided me the perfect introduction to the art of speaking well and the nudge to join a Toastmasters club which I could not recommend more highly. This is an amazing peer learning community where everyone, newbie and experienced, are encouraged to have an awesome time mastering the craft of speech.

Berlinda Gooi | Deputy Director [Intake 7]

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This course is an eye-opening experience for me. My spoken English is not that good and after attending this course, I feel the motivation to want to attend some basic Spoken English Course to further improve myself. Thank you CK!

Dr. Jin WeiXin | R&D Scientist | EWT Centre of Innovation (NP) [Intake 7]

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I am not a native English speaker and had a fear to speak in public. Mr. Ting Chee Kheong boosted my confidence and helped me to overcome of this fear. Now, I am using techniques taught by him and improving my public speaking skills. I recommend this course to all who wish to improve their public speaking skills.

Umakant Aggarwal | Sr. Manager - Finance | Lanco International [Intake 6]

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I always thought that one just need to overcome his fear in order to give a good speech in public but I found out that it is not entirely true. Giving speeches in public is much more than overcoming one's inner fear, it is about being prepared, understanding your audience, removing "bad habits", speaking clearly, etc.. In fact public speaking is both an art and science, whereby one needs to constant practise and hone his skills.

I am grateful to have taken my first baby steps on this journey to improve myself.

Julian Chan | Project Coordinator [Intake 6]

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have always had a fear of public speaking - from feeling nervous to worrying that I do not have anything to say, to how to connect with my audience. However, Mr. Ting Chee Kheong gave me great tips on how to conquer my fears, how to craft my speech and how to connect with my audience. And I even managed to go up and give a short impromptu speech in the Toastmaster meeting session in front of 20 plus people! I never thought that I could do it but I did! It was quite an experience for me!

Irene Seah

Chartered Accountant [Intake 5]

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The course had answered most of my questions on public speaking techniques and along the way also debunked some myths I had. I most appreciate the hands-on experience on speech writing and video-recorded speeches. The opportunity to attend a Toastmasters meeting and deliver an impromptu table topic to a room full of strangers was a memorable experience as well. Thank you Chee Kheong!

Musliha Muhamad | B.B.A (NUS), M.P.A (Murdoch) | MUIS [Intake 5]

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Before knowing Lion City Toastmasters Club's Public Speaking Course (PSC), I was always haunted by the thoughts of having to give speeches in front of public - I had all the symptoms of stage-frights, such as my mind suddenly going blank, accelerating heart beats, and loss of words.

However, my fears and nightmares were all gone after I join the PSC.

The course teaches us useful public speaking tips and most importantly, provides us with a platform to practice public speaking in front of a crowd.

The club is made up of people who aspire to become better public speakers, so you don't need to feel embarrassed when making mistakes, because everyone is also learning to be better!

After giving 6 speeches in the club, I find myself feeling more confident when giving my speeches.

Thank you Lion City Toastmasters Club and especially to the trainer cum President, Mr. Ting Chee Kheong!
