District 102 Director’s Message









As we begin our Toastmasters Term 2017-2018, let us visualize D102 as a Top Performing District in 10 months.

Being a Top Performing District means to:

  • Be mindful of the Toastmasters International Core Values of Integrity, Respect, Service, Excellence and our Team Values ie. Empowerment, Trust, Accountability.
  • Retain High Membership and Clubs.
  • Encourage members to stay active in the Toastmasters Education Program.
  • Disseminate the benefits of the Toastmasters Program through membership and club building.
  • Support the members and the clubs to achieve excellence, earlier rather than later.
  • Walk the Talk by Leaders.
  • Prepare for Succession.

To do it alone can be quite a feat but together as a team – Anything Is Possible!

“Keep The Main Thing, The Main Thing.”- Daniel Rex, CEO Toastmasters International.

Let’s put our best foot forward with enthusiasm, ebullience and effectiveness.

This mail is to keep you updated on what is happening and our direction in the months to come.                                                                                                     Club officers training is almost completed and a big “Thank You’” to the Organizing team working together with Toastmasters Leadership Institute team.

The International speech and table topics contests are now at Area level. It would be very exciting to see who will be our very first District 102 representative at the World Championship of Public Speaking. The contest heat is on!!!

The District has launched 3 marketing and 1 education campaigns and there will be more upcoming on. Look out for emails from our DPRM and seize the opportunity to gather some new items!

We have also formed a special committee lead by PIP Datuk Seri Dr. John Lau, DTM to study a motion raised during last DCM in SAC, JB in November 2016.A detailed email had been sent to you on this matter. The committee will report their findings at the next District Council meeting on 28th April 2017 at the Annual Conference.

The District is also very proud with the successfully organized First District 102 Semiannual Conference in Johor Bahru with 262 delegates. Thanks to the entire organizing committee and support from all the members, respectively.

Moving forward, let us usher the next 6 months by welcoming the New Year 2017 with a smile on our faces.

You can make a speech on success or make SUCCESS speak for itself.

A Message from Manoj Vasudevan

“You are Never too small to be BIG.
But are you ready to lead?”

By May Wong, ACB ALB


The above question rather than answer was the take home message from Manoj Vasudevan, leadership coach and author for the book ‘Mastering Leadership the Mousetrap Way’ that wrapped up the final workshop at the District 102 Semi Annual Conference held on 12-13 November 2016, in Holiday Villa Johor Bahru City.

One has to always be prepared to take on opportunity to be a Leader, but to be ever-ready, we have to think and act like a Leader according to the speaker, Manoj. He shared with us some of the important criteria of what it takes to be one.

1. Take ownership and initiative at work. As a Leader, you have to give excellence, not excuse. Do step up for new projects and be accountable for the good as well as bad outcomes, as they help build your competence and confidence.

  1. Generating ideas alone is not enough. A Leader must infuse ideas by applying some of the infusion points such as pleasure, profit, power, productivity, prestige and especially, A powerful purpose empowers people to be engaged and achieve excellence together.

3. Exert influence through trust, not authority. Are you telling, yelling or selling to get the idea across or getting work done? It is necessary for a Leader to build trust in order to lead others into doing something at will, not by force.

4. Embrace diversity by working with people different from yourself in order to increase your edge. Get to know people of different backgrounds and personalities as diversity allows a Leader to understand everyone from their perspectives.

To sum up, if you aren’t a Leader yet, try look at what you want to be in 5 or 10 years and then learn how to get there; by adopting above criteria for instance. If you already are a Leader, keep sharpening your knowledge and competency because Marshall Goldsmith once said, What got you here, won’t get you there.” It needs great leader like you to create more great leaders.

Now, are you ready to lead?

DD with FlagMerdeka Merdeka Merdeka

Happy Merdeka Celebration to all.

Recently at the Toastmasters World Convention, I had the privilege and honor to participate in the opening ceremony flag parade. Carrying the Malaysian flag, I felt great sense of patriotism in me.

I reflected upon the history of Toastmasters in Malaysia and the fact that we have now grown into 3 Districts respectively. We have the past leaders as well as members to thank that made this happen.

When I was at the convention, everyone was curious and had wonders about this the latest 3 digit district. I was delighted to tell them we, District 102 are the youngest and newest District in the world. Everyone encouraged me and wished us well for our district on the journey to achieve excellence in Toastmasters Programs.

I shared the joy on being in the new district as well as huge feat ahead of me as first term District Director. I refreshed my vision and planned some fine idea for our district.

The District will focus on expanding the Toastmasters program across Malaysia by building more new clubs, creating opportunities for more fellow Malaysians about the benefits of Toastmasters and to make Toastmasters a COMMON Brand to every Malaysian.

The District also envisioned to members, experiences that are richer and fulfilling. We will make sure members are well equipped with knowledge and tools to move forward and achieve excellence. There will be new initiative by emails, website, and blogspots, facebook and whatsapp communications’.

The District also will work towards quality clubs, mentoring program as well as helping members with more advance speeches leading towards achieving Distinguished Toastmasters award. We will also having leadership pool for future District roles.

With every club achieving quality, every area strong and every division distinguished, I am sure our District 102 will be successful in its first term when we set the pace for coming terms.

I believe with the great personalities, able leaders and happy members, we can achieve excellence and place ourselves at highest ranking District possible.

‘Remember the Member’- Mike Storkey, DTM, International President 2016/2017


Yours sincerely,


DISTRICT 102 DIRECTOR, 2016/2017
