Toastmaster for Learning English and Public Speaking

Educational Session from Division J Governor TM Zilva Boaz

Greetings All!


We are approaching end of April 2015 and are very happy to have held a truly meaningful meeting of our beloved JLTC at Suan Thai. What makes it different is because this time meeting we received an inspiring and meaningful education session from Division Governor-J, TM Zilva Boaz, with the title of  “How To Do A Simple and Effective Evaluation”.


We got useful tips, formulated as “RAP” (Result, Audience, and Preparation). In conclusion, we should focus on:

  1. Result: the speech to be prepared, rehearsed and presented by the speaker to meet with the speech objectives.
  2. Audience: the speech should  inspire, influence and involve the audiences as per the speech purpose.
  3. Preparation : point out the good things you like being an evaluator, reemphasize the positive point and also the closing as well as the conclusion.

Though the formula looks to be simple, I believe to be an excellent evaluator, one requires continuous practice and experience. Thus, the training inspires me also to try to do better evaluation in the future meetings.

In the meeting, we have four amazing prepared speakers : (1) TM Rika with her 3rd project; (2) TM Awie with his 4th project (3) TM Adi Kurniawan with his 6th project; and (4) the newly joint member,  TM Dewi Astuti with her 1st Icebreaker Speech. The old-time members have improved a lot since their first time joining JLTC and I trust it was thanks to their hard work, evaluation inputs, and last but not least was the great support of all members in JLTC ! This excitement makes me can’t wait to deliver my next speech project immediately in the next meeting 🙂

Other good news are, we were very delighted to have again the visit of our last meeting distinguished guests, fellow Darwin Lesmana in addition to TM Dewi Astuti who had instantly joint our membership last weekend.  Welcome TM Darwin!  And we all hope you will also soon follow TM Dewi Astuti’s step by joining our  JLTC membership.

Let’s strive to continously shaping up ourselves and shining altogether 🙂


Woow, TM Dewi Astuti, the newly joint members turned out to be the Best Prepared Speaker and fellow Darwin Lesmana, as Best Table Topic Speaker. Congratulations to both of you! We shall look forward to your next awesome speeches.

The next meeting shall be on 7th May 2015. Anyone gets interested, please give us a call and welcome joining our meeting. See you then, cheers 🙂

4 Excos JLTC Attended TLI on 19th July 2014 at Prasetya Mulya

Our new excos of JLTC for the new period have finally got their curiosity fulfilled by attending TLI (Training Leadership Institute) on 19th July 2014 at Prasetya Mulya University, South Jakarta.

Seen here in the photo showing how happy and excited we were four excos of JLTC posing together after the TLI session was over and all attendants were having dinner to break their fasting :

As old-time toastmaster (though have been as President for two consecutive years in 2009-2011; currently as Treasurer – Yendy Wijaya), I still learnt a lot from the TLI. Not only did I find that many old-time newcomers in the past 2-3 years have now become good communicators, but they were also capable to show up as good MC and made effective presentation. Simply amazing !  This has proven that toastmaster has indeed helped many people to become not only a better speaker and leader, but also become a better person 🙂

Here are also some comments from our new ecxos.  VPE Januar Wijaya said that the TLI has opened and broadened his mind to many new perspectives that toastmaster enhanced him to many new network, many new knowledge and information, and many opportunities to explore in the future.  VPPR Adi Halim commented that the TLI was really exciting for him. He saw many new things beyond regular club meeting programs, learnt a lot of new things related to toastmaster education-programs-and events, and is also anxious to learn more about the District 87, Division I and J.   I suppose VPPR Adi’s  lattest statement has become good topic to be put into JLTC next meeting agendas when new AG Aminah is visiting Jakarta Lions Toastmaster club for installing new excos.

Overall, together with the new excos, I am very happy and proud that we all have made a good start in achieving half point for JLTC DCP and will continously work on our vision mission to achieve the President Distinguished Status by next year end term. Let’s do it fellow toastmasters. I believe we can achieve it through our solid TEAM (Together We Achieve More) 🙂

Training Leadership Institute (TLI)

It was the first time a Toastmasters Leadership Institute (TLI) Round1 conducted especially for DISTRICT 87 which covers

The TLI is always useful not only for new toastmasters but also the old-time toastmasters to learn about functions/roles of Excos (Executive Committee) and some other issues related to toastmaster so that audiences understand a bigger picture and can gain benefits from his/her joining the membership.
