Here’s wishing all Hindus everywhere, Happy Diwali! May millions of lamps illuminate your lives and bring joyful blessings to you and your families!

The organization Toastmasters International grew out of a single club, Smedley Chapter One Club. It was on this day, ninety years ago that Ralph C Smedley started it at the YMCA in Santa Ana, USA  and it would become the first Toastmasters club. 

Today, Toastmasters have spread their tentacles far and wide with a 313,000 membership in 14,650 clubs in 126 countries that make up our global network of meeting locations.












On Monday, I was in KL Sentral to deliver my tenth CC speech. It had a simple title: "Re-boot". This represents my fourteenth round of the Competent Communication manual that I have completed since I joined Toastmasters.

The KL Advanced Toastmasters meeting drew a good crowd and I counted twenty of us who were present at Mercu UEM that rain-drenched evening. I am more than happy to score this meeting an 8 over 10.
