Foster New Relationship in PSTMC

Relations of various kind affect every facets of our everyday life. That is why we chose “relationship” as the theme of our meeting this week. Because without good relationship with people around us, how can we enhance our communications skills and achieve excellence?

I would like to say our TME-Roawin has done an excellent job by guiding us to play a small game in the beginning and in this way, we better understand how to foster relations, both physically and mentally.

The Special Sharing was what I enjoyed the most in the evening. Our professional trainer, Linda Ma delivered a “Sales Traning” to teach us how to sell our products and even ourselves. The opening, with some questions, got enthusiastic response from the audience and created great interactions. During the process, Linda designed “Role Play” so that every audience was involved in the training. And in the end, Linda shared with some simple and easy-to-remember sales tips and in this way, people can better digest and absorb. The whole session was educational and we all learned a great deal from it! Thanks, Linda!

Ben Dai as TTM proposed a series of questions regarding “relations”(including office relations, love relations, relations with parents) to the audience and five members and guests bravely shared with their stories and experiences. What was most impressive was Sam, a member from 5A+! He even depicted a plot on how he courageously confessed his love to his girl.

As for the prepared speeches, all are great speeches! Megan told the audience why she wanted to be back to Toastmasters Club; Bourne lectured on “Environment Protection” and our most distinguished Peter delivered a very humorous speech on his “Japanese Experience”.

Evaluators proposed various suggestions and advice to the speakers on how to inprove their speeches from different perspectives based on their different experiences. They are the most lovely people as without them, how can we enhance our communication skills?

The award ceromony was the most expected every time. Sam got “The Most Impressive Table Topic Speaker”, Peter received “The Best Speaker” and Daniel got “The Best Evaluator”. Let us congratulate them!

Because of our passion, professionalism, and dedication, several guests decided to join us as a member on site! People Square Toastmasters Club ROCKS!

Do You Want To Be Motivated?

  Every person has motivations to do whatever they like. In this evening, what they like was coming to People Square Toastmasters Club! There came a lot of members and guests with different motivations. Some were motivated by their passion to listen to different stories, like me; Some came here because they were motivated by their peer, like Ben’s six friends; Some people were motivated by their responsibility as officers to improve the wellbeing of Toastmasters Club in Shanghai region, like our senior guest, Samuel, to name just a few.

  In “Special Sharing” session, as motivated by his desire to improve the wellbeing of People Square Toastmasters Club, Samuel shared with us his “Standard Operation Process” in global toastmasters club in which he redefined different responsibilities of different role takers and pointed out several aspects that we can do better. The enlightening session has shifted our focus to the front line(speakers) to the backend organizers(officers) and provided us with many tips to better organize our meetings! With his help, we believe we will take a step forward on the way of self-improvement and perfection!

  Two speakers, with such a sharp contrast in terms of their mode of thinking, style as well as contents delivered C1 and C3 speeches respectively. Oscar, the king of the evening, shared with his male peers quite a few tips on how to chase a girl, how to maintain a positive and stable harmounious relations between each other in a “high” way. His “high” spirit induced laughters everywhere in the meeting room and earned him the best speaker in the evening! While Joy, a very tender lady, lectured on “Pyramid Principle” which I happened to read several month ago. She used “Elevator Test” introducing the “MECE” principle(mutually exclusive, completely exhaustive) which is proposed by McKinsey and widely used in consulting field. We all listened to her tentatively with full contentration and curiosity and after her speech, I have been able to use a more logical way to express myself.

  “Table Topic” session is always the most popular session as it always attacts a lot of guests to participate. This time was not an exception, too! Six members and guests actively set themselves on the stage and performed a wonderful show!

  The meeting ended with contentment and pleasure as we not only learned how to deal with relations and how to sell proposal with “MECE” principle, we also attracted two more new members(Oscar Kwun and Megan Peng) to our club by “Law of Attraction”!

  Let us welcome Oscar Kwun and Megan Peng again and wish them all the best in the club!

Would Like to Share with Us Moments of Your Life?

 The theme of 6th, April’s meeting was “Moment” and luckily we enjoyed every MOMENT of the evening, from the opening to the end. More than 40 memebers and guests took time out of their very busy schedule to make it, creating the most passionate body. We not only listened, spoke, laughed, but more importantly, we shared with each other our feeling, our story and even our single status! Haha, it is a magical place where you even can possiblely meet Mr./Miss Right.

  Life is composed of moments, no matter it is a happy moment or a frustrated moment, no matter it is a satisfying moment or a disappointing moment, no matter it is touching moment or angry moment, they all have accompanied our growth and make us better ladies and gentlemen.

  All the three speeches are provoking and educational. Neil talked about his conquer of Music and how that shaped his value “Champion is from hard practice”. Samuel used “80/20 Rules” introducing his story with Toastmasters and his family which has made everybody touched. Matthew is a born public speaker in that he integrated our theme to his speech perfectly by encouraging us to write down every moment that we have positive feelings.

  In the evening, however, I personally love the “Table Topic” session best because I love playing games with uncertainty. Everyone was a fast responder and used their creativity illustrating the special moments in their lives!

  Again, we all felt so blessed and that was a happy ending for all!

What an Amazing Evening(30th, Mar.)

Everything in this meeting was excellent. TME, guests, audience, speakers, evaluators used every opportunity to show their dedication and commitment to helping the club members to achieve excellence which creates the benchmark club in Shanghai! 

   TME used humourous and entertaining language usage and gestures pushed the atmosphere to a climax.

   “Special Sharing” from Marc Hong was focues on “Law of Attraction” to tell us a magic which is “I attract to myself, my life and business, whatever I give my attentionm energy and focus to, whether negative or positive.” It was such a coincidence that I read a few books on this topic and I think it works!

    C1 speaker, the new comer, Phoenix Feng shared with us his true personal stories which is really encouraging. He told us never give up, no matter what the situation is.

    C3 speaker, Cynthia Chen, made her C3 speech again! A touching story of her. She finally got what she wanted! Congratulations!

    C4 speaker, the immediate past President, Spike Gu, acted as a professor in Philosophy and proposed a series of questions to make us make a decision in dilemmas. It is the most inspiring and provoking for me in the evening. I personally love it best!

    Each evaluator voiced his/her opinions and gave valuable advice and suggestions to speakers, benefiting each one in the meeting.

    Thanks a lot! PSTMC! It was my first day joinging in and you offered me such a great opportunity to convey my happiness to all those who care about us and are interested in us. 

    PSTMC, we will make it happen!
