Winners of The International Speech Contest

These contests exemplify Toastmasters’ commitment to empowering individuals on their communication journey. Through participation, members and the public enhance their ability to articulate ideas, provide constructive feedback, and connect effectively with others. The contests are a testament to the transformative power of effective communication.

Ranjinath Muniandy, Director of Division C, Toastmasters District 102, said “We all experience that nervous feeling before facing a crowd. But remember, even seasoned speakers get nervous. The difference lies in how they channel that energy. As Mark Twain wisely said, ‘There are two types of speakers: those who get nervous and those who are liars.’ Embrace the nerves, let them fuel your passion, and remember – you’ve got this!”

Woo Hui Qin, Programme Quality Director of Toastmasters District 102, fittingly expressed “Give me a fish, I will be fed for a day; Teach me to fish, I will be fed for a lifetime.” Contest participation allows their members to keep pushing boundaries and observe how seasoned speakers deliver their speeches. By incorporating feedback from evaluators during regular meetings, they elevate their skills and serve as role models for fellow members. This principle of “giving and teaching” not only helps them reach personal objectives but also motivates others to enhance themselves.”

CP Lau, District Director of Toastmasters District 102, prompted the audience with timeless wisdom from Bruce Lee, “Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do.” In Toastmasters, they don’t simply gather knowledge; it is put into practice. The contests offer an ideal platform to implement their learning. When there’s a determination within us, we take initiative. The Toastmasters push people to adopt this mindset and approach, turning every occasion into an opportunity for learning, advancement, and inspiration.
