Report by Tan Lay Theng, Past President
You Are Not Alone
In Friendship Toastmasters Club, you are definitely not alone.
As the Club President, Zaiton Zainal Abidin, mentioned in her President’s Message, the members of Friendship have the same dream of being better communicators and better leaders, and the motto “Friends helping friends succeed” has been translated into action by members of Friendship on many occasions. This meeting is another showcase of FTMC’s effort in helping members to grow and develop.
