President’s Welcoming Address

Where Leaders Are Made

I am thrilled to welcome you to Bayan Baru Toastmasters Club (‘BBTMC’) website. BBTMC is a non-profit educational organisation dedicated to promoting public speaking and leadership skills.

As the Club President of Bayan Baru Toastmasters Club 2019/2020, together with the support of my EXCOs and fellow club members, I strongly believe we will witness another successful term, and remain as a highly respected Toastmasters Club. Bayan Baru Toastmasters Club has always been a shining example in District 51, in both Communication and Leadership.

With this, allow me to share with all of you the club’s vision and theme for this term.

The club has produced many successful speakers and leaders. There must be a reason why members continue growing with the system and guidance in Toastmasters. After joining as a member in the past few years ad now proudly elected as a President, I realise that one of the important elements of BBTMC is the ‘connection’.

It doesn’t stop there as an evaluator will then provide some feedback and suggests room of improvement for the speaker. This is a powerful synergy that we have in Toastmasters, learning from each other and grow together. I have seen how impactful this “connection” is and how it improves members in Toastmasters. Having said that, I will do my best in strengthening this connection so that more members will benefit from it, just like I did.

With this vision in mind, the theme of term 2019/2020 will be “Through Speech, We Connect”.

We are here to lend support for each other in the fortnightly meetings by taking up roles and giving constructive feedback within the club as well as outside the club meetings as mentors, guides, leaders with or without any official titles. This is the kind of servant leadership that BBTMC aspires to provide to its members.

Most importantly, our goal is to help members attain self-improvement and development within the next 12 months. Let’s work hand in hand to make this goal achievable.

Looking forward to another year of Excellence towards the club’s President’s Distinguished Club fine run of 19 consecutive years.

“Through Speech, We Connect.”

Warmest Regards,

Chern Hung
President of Bayan Baru Toastmasters Club 2019/2020
