Interesting and engaging. I came thinking I will be bored but CK is able to make it relevant even to me as a student.

Nicole Ho| Student [Intake 27]

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

I learnt that a script has to be reviewed many times to be impactful.

Ezfarinna Binte Othman| [Intake 25]

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

I am glad I joined my friend and I learnt so much. This is Skills Future Credits well spent! :)

Raihainah Ramlee| [Intake 25]

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

I enjoyed myself greatly. Course is interactive and interesting. The 5 minutes video adds a lot of value.

Nur Rashidah Binte Ab Rahman| [Intake 25]

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

CK advocates that a good public speaker is based on 50% script and 50% delivery, and he made me realized that I just have to work on my delivery to become an exemplary speaker.

Jennever Pelaez| Banking [Intake 24]

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

I learn a lot from this course.

Lin Ying| Nurse [Intake 24]

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

CK is able to help me overcome my fear of speaking in front of a crowd and I know it is still work in process.

Swapna Silvam| Civil Servant [Intake 24]

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

Being in sales, I have no problems speaking to people one-to-one but speaking to a crowd is another thing altogether. I have known CK for many years and I saw he has been conducting this Public Speaking Course for some years now. I finally mustered enough courage to approach him to say that I want to learn to conquer my fear of public speaking. As the saying goes, “the rest is history”!

I took part in the impromptu speaking segment which is in front of a live audience of over 25 people, and my topic is “A thousand miles start with a single step” – and this truly struck me and I can’t agree with it more. I am so glad I have taken the first step.

CK has been able to tell me that it is ok to be vulnerable, that I don’t need to seek for perfection, and that I am good enough. I particularly like what he said about “If you tell yourself the same lie over and over again you will believe it”. I guess I have been telling myself that I am not good in public speaking for way too long, and it is CK who pointed it out to me that yes, I can do it!!!

Thank you CK!

Roland Tan| Senior Associate Group Director [Intake 23]

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

I joined the PSC wanting to know how to calm myself down during the initial phase of my presentations. CK was able to give me very practical tips on how to do so and now I am more confident to deliver my company presentations. I particularly like the “Yes I can do it!” mantra that CK taught us to recite before any presentation, and it works!

Jessie Yu| IT Professional [Intake 23]

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

I learnt from CK that public speaking is about 50% content & 50% delivery. There were useful techniques such as the fish-bone & tree stance. I like the opportunity to practice speaking impromptu in front of a live audience, but guess it will be more beneficial if there are more opportunities for me to practice to boost my confidence.

L. F Yip| IT Professional [Intake 23]

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

CK is very professional and helpful. All sessions were productive and training notes are very useful. Good exposure for beginners.

Samantha Soh| Project Manager [Intake 23]

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

The 5-minutes speech practice is very good and enables me to discover my strengths and weaknesses. Interesting to take part in the Impromptu Speaking during the toastmasters meeting, it is more scary than I thought but at the same time very eye-opening. Overall very enjoyable and insightful!

FengXian| Start-up Co-Founder [Intake 22]

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

The whole syllabus is very comprehensive and meaningful. CK is able to give very useful feedback. However, I hope that there are more opportunities to practice as I feel I am still very much at the beginner stage. Perhaps beginners can start a day earlier to overcome our fears.

Yong Kwan| Executive [Intake 22]

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

CK imparted great knowledge and shared selflessly. Thank you!

*Christina Sum| Principal Medical Technologist [Intake 22]

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

I enjoy the class because there is a lot of interaction and it helps me to discover that I have my own unique style of presenting, which CK is able to still give me very individualized feedback. The course notes, however, can be more condensed though.

*Sheen Lau | Sales, Fintech [Intake 22]

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

I learnt so much that I wish that there are more opportunities for us to speak and practice more. Thank you CK!

Zach| Media & Sales [Intake 22]

*Tristan Ennis | Lead, Contract Management [Intake 18]

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

Jia Xin | Marketing Executive [Intake 17]

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

It was a good avenue to practice public speaking and it is especially interesting to see yourself in the video before and after feedback from the trainer. I am able to reflect on my own strengths and weaknesses and the course definitely boosted my confidence in public speaking.

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!
