History of TMCS:
TMCS was founded in 1967. Club founder CTM Ling Lee Hwa started life as a rubber tapper in Sarawak. As a young man, he moved to Singapore to seek his fortune. During the Second World War, his education was abruptly halted. Years later, seeking to improve his English and continue his self-development journey, Mr Ling and some businessmen decided to start a speaking club. One of the businessmen was Mr Wong Lian Han, the President of the Singapore Manufacturer’s Association. Together, they started the Toastmasters Club of Singapore in 1967 to provide a community for individuals who aim to improve their communications and leadership abilities.TMCS Highlights:

For physical meetings, registration starts at 6:30 pm. At this time, food and drinks are available. This is an excellent opportunity for members and guests to mingle and network.
The meeting starts at 7:00 pm. After the opening address, the first segment of our meeting is prepared speeches. Here, we typically have 6-8 speakers who will deliver speeches they have practised diligently for the last week(s). This segment will last slightly over an hour.
After that, we will have a short 10-15 min break.
The second segment is table topics. This is an impromptu speaking session and is open to members and guests to participate. 5-10 volunteers will come on stage and deliver a 1-2 min speech. They will not know the topic until they get on stage. This segment lasts about half an hour. We highly encourage all guests to take part!
The final segment is evaluations. Here, experienced members will deliver 2-3 min evaluations for the speakers from the prepared speech segment. The evaluators will assess the speaker’s speech, tell them where they did well, and suggest areas for improvement.
The evening concludes with the award ceremony for the best speaker, table topic speaker and evaluator, and closing address. Our meetings typically finish around 10 pm.
