Constantly Learning by Doing
Goh Hock Hai (Bayan Baru Toastmasters) exemplifies the Toastmasters motto of constantly learning by doing. He is a Toastmaster of a year and two months, always willing to try new things and never gives up.
In September 2008, Goh Hock Hai became the first member of our Club this term to achieve his Competent Communicator.
Goh wanted to improve his presentation skills in his career in the hard-hat world of building and construction. Married with a daughter, he is no longer an SAA "single-and-available" but is a real SAA - the Sergeant at Arms of Bayan Baru Toastmasters Club. Our club has high expectations of quality food during break times of meeting and so it is always a tall order to be our SAA.
Last term, Goh actually had volunteered to play "replacement SAA" when our devoted SAA Della Chew moved on to a new job in Kuala Lumpur. This term, he was duly elected as the official SAA without a single shot fired....
Was truly impressed that Goh took up the role of Division N Evaluation Contest Chair yesterday. It provided the speaking platform for him to learn more by doing. To gain more self-confidence and to realize one's own full potential. Sounds like a Toastmasters mission and vision.
Keep it up Toastmaster Goh Hock Hai.
