Very good evening Fellow TM, Guests, Ladies and Gentlemen.
How are you feeling today? Awesome!
It is my pleasure to be your TME today, and as I have mentioned earlier, my name is James Oh from AFC TM club.
On behalf of Money and You TM club, I would like extend a warm welcome to all the new, young, old members and thank all the guests for taking your precious time to attend this fun, food fulfilling meeting.
Let me give all of you a brief introduction of what is toastmasters international.
Toastmaster was formed in 1924 by a well respected missionary gentleman called DR.RALPH C. SMEDLEY, the founder of TI. From a humble beginning, he started the first Toastmaster meeting at the YMCA in Santa Ana, California United States. The founder, once said, “Education is our business. It has been so from the beginning.” Now, I feel proud to play a part in this huge organization. It does not matter how small is my role, what matters most to me is to keep his legacy alive. Though he had gone, his spirit is still with us.
Toastmasters International has then grown to become a world leader in helping people, like you and me, become more competent and comfortable in front of an audience. The non-profit organization now has nearly 280,000 members in over 13,500 clubs in 116 countries, offering a mutually supportive, and positive learning environment for communication and leadership skills. Where else you can find such a wonderful place – it is second to none, I would say.
Bear in mind that you don't have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.
Not to perturb your mind, I must let you know that Toastmasters is the best place to learn, to build your confidence and competence. So don't worry if you never speak on stage before. Laugh at yourself first before anyone can. This is the platform to start your journey to become a good speaker, writer and thinker. 3 in One package. Come and join us to be a dreamer.
Its first magazine was published in December 1932 on quarterly basis and Today it is produced on monthly basis.
