What some of our past leaders have to say about their journey serving as club officers (executive committee or EXCO)

Prakash Ramalingam
(2018 – 2019 Club President)

Having experienced Toastmasters in both India and Singapore, serving Exco for two terms and being a member of MMTMC for 3+ years, I can see tremendous growth in myself. Here are the top 2 specific influences I have had in my life that I owe to MMTMC.  

The indestructible superpower – Whether it is personal or professional life, irrespective of your IQ, there is one quality that makes a person stand out from the crowd – Confidence. Even though I am not an introvert, I never had the courage to speak up and my opinions, thoughts or coin my suggestions. But after joining Toastmasters things changed for me. The more I spoke on stage before an audience, I gained courage to speak up before my colleges, clients and managers fearlessly. The more leadership opportunities I took at MMTMC, I gained immense confidence to take up any herculean task even if I am unfamiliar with it. At my first job in Singapore, for me to transform from an almost invisible back end engineer to a customer facing technical consultant in a relatively short span of time, I owe it to Money Mastery which gave me my indestructible superpower – Confidence.  

The art of Clarity – We often see people in our work/meetings, talking so much but with little or no purpose. Or people who talk too little making no point at all. Speaking with clarity and purpose, is very much an underrated skill today. Whether it is a Keynote speech or a simple WhatsApp announcement, clarity is imperative. Over the last few years with the club, I have significantly improved on my ability to channel my thoughts clearly and concisely. Many a times I have been able to articulate and breakdown complex technical Jargon much simpler to my clients, thanks to the immense practice I have had at Money Mastery! It may be a simple skill, but when it comes to standing out from your colleagues at work every simple skill makes a big difference!

Frequently Asked Questions

Not necessary. Club advisors will provide the necessary guidance to get you started. Ongoing guidance will be provided throughout the term to ensure that you gain the maximum benefits of serving as a club officer.

The only exception will be the Club President role. It is not open for application. The right candidate will be handpicked by Club Advisors. Usually, the opportunity to lead as the MMTMC Club President will be offered to those who have serve at least ONE term as an EXCO member previously.

A toastmaster’s term is one year long. Hence, the club officer role requires you to commit to a one year period. It begins on the 1st of Jul of each year and ends on the 30th Jun of the following year.

Usually, we on board new leaders once a year on the 1st Jul. However, leadership transition takes place as early as six months before that. So you will be invited to be a passive observer months in advance for the role you will be officially taking over from 1st of Jul each term.

Occasionally, we may inject additional club officers in the midst of a term. This happens when there is an opening or opportunity to do so.

Most certainly. In fact, some of the roles provides you with more opportunities to speak impromptu. The VPE role provides you an opportunity to update members of what’s upcoming during the announcement segment. You get to polish your skills of “elevator pitch” given the 5 minutes to intrigue members of upcoming events and meetings.

Similarly, the VPM role provides the opportunity to hone your skills at each meeting with a “membership drive” segment. Occasionally, the CP/VPE/VPM may choose to rotate amongst EXCO members to deliver the same.

In essence, EXCO duties does not diminish the chances you get to speak. But open up more opportunities for you to try different form of speech that the Toastmasters curriculum may not provide.  

We operate one of the finest chapter meetings in Singapore. Leading an 80 strong club is completely different from say a club with 20 members. There are many moving parts to organizing our events of such scale. Serving as a club leader, you will get a buffet spread of opportunities from the various roles.

These could be copywriting skills, social media engagements, marketing campaigns for events, workshops and contests. The educational roles gets your exposed to constantly searching for top notch workshop speakers. As well as instrumental in designing more educational and engaging meetings for our members and guests.
