Welcome JLTC New Excos 2014-2015

JLTC meeting on Thursday, 3rd July 2014 was indeed a very special moment, as it was the first day of new Excos’ term for July 2014 – June 2015 and that TM Yendy together with TM Dewi and DTM Maria Megawati, old-time excos had made a great welcome and declaration to all the newcomers as followings : President Naryaton Lie (Awie), VPE Januar Wijaya, Secretary Dewi Oni, VPM Adi Kurniawan, VPR Adi Halim and Treasurer Yendy Wijaya.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         TM Yendy delivered two advanced  speeches from “Speeches by Management” manual which served as educational session and was evaluated by DTM Maria Megawati.   Her first speech was regarding “Excos’ Roles and Responsibilities” succeeded by second speech “DCP /Distinguished Club Point”.

In her respective speech, TM Yendy didn’t merely convey information, but also elaborated very compact on the issue and  shared her experiences how to achieve club  “President Distinguished” blue ribbon.  After the speech, she made additional session of “Q & A” facilitating all excos for clear understanding,  discussing action plans for revitalizing JLTC and sharing tips how to strive to achieve again the most honorable DCP status next year!

Though it’s still a long way to go, but all new members feel excited to start the journey soon !

As a result, President Awie proposed the vision of JLTC to be as a recognized club  and some rebranding plans for the mission.  Bravo! Let’s hand-in-hand working on the goals then 🙂



For the second speaker, we had  new VPM Adi Kurniawan, who made his first speech with title of  “Dream About Me”. He told us that he once knew his  home environment as a country called “Jelambar” (in West Jakarta) and how he felt very comfortable with his life till he dreamt to open a shop when he grew up.

Yet his perspective has changed until he had won his struggle to go to Bandung famous state university, learnt from the new environment and found that  his youth’s dream was too small.  And now he has found bigger dream of setting up a factory in the future.  He concluded his speech with a very inspiring quote, which says “The best way to fulfill your dream is to wake up“.


I was personally stunned by his quote. It means that we can dream about all we want, but eventually we have to wake up, get back to our reality and work hard as well as smart in order to achieve our own dream.

Woow, TM Kurniawan didn’t seem to deliver icebreaker speech. TM Dewi said it was supposed to be project 9, an inspiring speech.

Thanks for your inspiration, TM Adi Kurniawan and we can’t wait to hear further your second project speech 🙂


The JLTC WOD was “COMMUNICATIVE” and as usual, all of participants, including some distinguished guests were engaged  in the Table Topic Session, led by TM Yendy. It was a very pleasant and exciting night, because all of the audiences could speak up so well.

As Hall of Fame, DTM Maria was chosen as the best Table Topic speaker and also as the best Evaluator (that’s awesome!).
