Fear of Public Speaking

So, is Public Speaking Your #1 Fear?

Well, you’re not the only one:

According to most studies,
people’s Number One Fear is Public Speaking.
Number Two Fear is death. Death is Number Two!!!
Now, this means, to the average person, if you have to go to a funeral, you’re better off in the casket than doing the eulogy.

– Jerry Seinfeld –

And the good news, there’s a club that provides:

  • A step-by-step Educational Program to ensure your public speaking success
  • A meeting room for you to do your public speaking practice
  • A supportive audience
  • A mentor to help your public speaking progress
  • A Speech Evaluator to provide you with positive feedback after EACH delivery

Fear of Public Speaking?
Come to Toa Payoh Central CC Toastmasters Club

TPCTMC

This blog is an extention of a website known as tpctmc.org, otherwise known as Toa Payoh Central Toastmasters Club of Singapore.

A 1st posting was originally published here. Then moved to tpctmc.wordpress.com, then back here again.

Over at WordPress.com, I took almost 3 hours to go through every template, found the one I felt most suitable to fit in the heading only to discover that color of the link and rest of the font were of the same color.

Logged in the admin area have all the links underlined.
Now it looks like a link but what happened if I should switch to another theme again?

The lack of control is heating things up a little.
If only I could make a change at the CSS area … well, that’s something for a paid member.

So I’m back here again.

Soon this site will replace those lost search position of TPCTMC

Annual Gathering Dec 2007

I was busy tweaking this new WordPress theme I didn’t have the time to blog about this annual event.

Read about it at Chai Tun’s blog:

http://80aread3.blogspot.com/2007/12/tpccc-year-end-gathering-on-29-dec-at.html

I did a trackback but I doubt it would be successful at blogspot.

By the time you read this, the new theme should be up.

The rest of the photos could be viewed at Yiang Ping’s Album collection at Picasaweb:

Did you try to visit us yesterday?

The web was down for a few hours yesterday.

It was back at about 7.00pm.

If you are reading this, now you know the reason. But hundred others may not.

There’s nothing I could do about it. The hosting were trying to put it back the best they could. This is a non-profit organization. We couldn’t afford a dedicated server.

My numerous calls to them during that period may be annoying but that’s the most I could do.

While they’re trying very hard to fix it, all I got was “We’re compiling the Apache.”

I couldn’t understand, I couldn’t help. So we just wait …. until 7.00pm.

My sincere apologies. Please come back again.

And Chapter #215 continues …

Well, the chapter meeting #215 was adjorned. but the word of the evening “MOMENT” by the Language Evaluator, Charanjit Singh ACG, CL, didn’t ended there.

Michael, our newly joined member continued with this:

Hi
Thanks for the warm reception. The MOMENT I was on the third level, Yiang Ping was there to welcome me and Chai Tun made me feel at home. It was comfortable to have Peter beside.

The website drew me to the club – both informative and informal. Well done President and Webmaster. A feather to your cap. The website hints a family-friendly environment that is serious in education and development of members. It proved true.

We have our reasons to join TM. Maybe I can be down for the ice breaker next meeting to share on my objectives in joining TM – not very differnt from most of you but not necessarily the same. It is the MOMENT of truth.

Riddle: What appears twice in a MOMENT, once in a minute but not in a second or hour or day or week or year?

Yiang Ping, the MAD one, the Mentor for Membership and sometimes the Mother of All Mentors asked, ” What is M?”:

Wow James… You are very smart can guess the answer of Michael’s riddle in “just a moment”!

May I invite all our members to contribute… In the Spirit of Toastmasters…

What is M?

Since serving as club president, I had been unable to keep up with the posting.

Updating of the website have also been kept just to the minimum.

But I try to keep this blog going. At least it’s easier than creating a new page for the web.

So, subscribe to the RSS feeds.

All announcements shall be made here instead.
