Subject: FTMC Meeting on 20 July - Confidence, Leadership, Service
We will be having our first regular meeting for term 2010-2011 on this coming Tuesday 20 July 2010. Our meeting theme will be
Confidence, Leadership, Service.
This is Toastmasters International theme for 2009-2010 and Gary Schmidt, our International President (up to August 2010) chose this theme because
The greatest skill Toastmasters has provided to me is confidence. I’m sure that is true of every member. Once we have improved self-confidence, we develop our talents leading others. We are all leaders! Confidence and leadership culminate in serving others. When we serve others we ultimately serve ourselves. Those three words – confidence, leadership, service – represent to me the outcomes of what Toastmasters really provides each of us. And, in turn, what we provide to others.
Coming back to our 20 July meeting, Freddie Yap, our Past President, will be our stunning (Word of the Day) TME. In his capable hands, we will surely have a marvellous meeting. Although he will be busy preparing for his insurance exams in the coming months, he did not hesitate to take up this TME role.
Project Speakers (and current Exco members) Chee Hoe, Alex and Vincent, we are looking forward to a stunning presentation from you as you continue in your Toastmasters journey of Confidence, Leadership and Service.
During our Installation Night on 6 July, our guest Emily Kok, has signed up to be Friendship's newest member. Please give her a warm welcome and join in our members pledge to help her in her Toastmasters journey when We conduct our New Member Induction ceremony at this coming meeting.
I hope everyone is looking forward to a stunning meeting on 20 July where we will gain Confidence, Leadership, Service while we do what we do best - Friends helping Friends to Succeed.
