A certificate is just but paper,
Paper endorsed and written with style
A medal is just but metal,
Metal embossed to be worn with pride
A trophy is just but glass,
Glass moulded with hands of art
But true glory lies with a champion,
A champion that resides in our heart!
GET READY TO BE DELIGHTED by Avi Liran in our Open House next week, learn more about the CLUB of CHAMPIONS, and enjoy a range of other exciting activities!

Manoj Vasudevan, ACS, CL, Ex President of Marine Parade Toastmasters Club, and member of Toastmasters Club of Singapore, won the third place in the prestigious Toastmasters World Championship of Public Speaking, the world’s largest speech contest. The contest was held on 15th August 2015 at Toastmasters International Convention in Caesars Palace, Las Vegas, USA.
Manoj reached the championship level after several elimination rounds that began six months ago with 30,000 participants in 100 countries. This is the first time Singapore has made it to the finals of this prestigious speech contest in the 91 years of Toastmasters history. Manoj has to say that, “In Singapore, many people are more talented than those I meet internationally, but many don’t believe in their potential. If we speak up, we can top the world.”
His winning speech was titled “We Can Fix It.” Click here to view the full speech http://bit.ly/1N45PoZ
Manoj was also featured on The Straits Times. The full article can be viewed here http://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/top-public-speaker-used-to-be-a-shy-person

In celebration of Toastmasters Awareness Month, Marine Parade Toastmasters Club is doing our Open House Chapter Meeting this March 21st!
Feel free to come, it is free of charge! Bring your friends and family and discover the speaker and the leader in you!
It was an evening of breaking the limits and giving up our limiting beliefs, as Marine Parade Toastmasters Club looked for new champions among a club-record-breaking number of contestants (10 for International Speech and 6 for Table Topics). Ladies dominated the contests and proved that they are the deadliest gender. We would also like to thank all organizers and appointment holders whose efforts made this event run smoothly, especially our organizing chair, Karolina Gwinner; contest chair, Anuradha Phanse and chief judge , Carolyn Widgette Street (yes, all ladies!) The winners would represent our club in the Area Level contest on March 8.
These are the brave and brilliant contestants for the night
By not listening to the limiting beliefs of the voices in her head, Roshni Wadhwani won 2nd runner up in the International Speech Contest.
The petite package with lots of surprises, Gwen Ling won 1st runner up in the International Speech Contest.
By not giving up, Leanne Ulibarri emerges as champion for International Speech Contest.
