School Talks

This week, I have been busy on the school speaking circuit. Last Tuesday (February 10), I went to give yet another school talk at SMK La Salle – two sessions with Fifth Formers on “10 Keys to 10 A’s”, and today (February 13), I was at SMK Methodist (ACS), followed by SMK Tengku Ampuan Rahimah (STAR) to present my “Who Am I?” topic. These school talks are important because the targeted Klang schools are a source of my ADP student numbers.

And last night, I was at D’Utama Advanced Toastmasters Club to present my speech #. 5 (i.e. Your Body Speaks), entitled “Managing My Stress”. My evaluator was Chan Siew Peng, and she claimed to be impressed with the way I delivered my speech, and better still, that I definitely displayed good body language. However, I should be more vigilant with my time keeping because one part of my speech could be better expanded to give more impact – and which I readily admit she was right. As far as I am concerned, I can still do better… In any case, I had ended my speech by relating my Laughter Club experience in New Delhi – it was a good ending – but one person thought that more emphasis on it would have made it even better. And Dr. Arul also mentioned that I need not travel all the way to India because there are Laughter Clubs in KL itself, and K Loghandran is very much involved in this. Very interesting…

Hi Victor,

Does this mean that I am likely to be critiqued when I present library instruction to our students in a couple of weeks? Great!
Save a couple of school visits for me. I might be able to close an enrollment or two for HICT & SNHU while I am there.
Looking forward to coming. Will arrive on the night of
Feb. 27th and will be staying in HELP University faculty housing.
