In Search of Excellence
Speaker : DTM Paul Yang

It is inevitable or is it just plain habit, that we complain about our
shortcomings. As the story goes : I keep complaining that I don't have
a pair of shoes until one day I came upon a man who has no legs. It is
time to reflect upon what we have within us and exercise our potential
wisely and stop lamenting what we don't have. It is not how many times
we fall, but how many times we pick ourselves up to excel.

DTM Paul Yang
Chartered Malaysia's first Mandarin Toastmasters Club in 1995 and went
on to establish more Mandarin Clubs thereafter. Awarded DTM in 1999.

tools to organize, influence, and expedite meetings in a simple and
clearly understandable manner.

Within moments you had made a decision: “This is a friendly group of people!”
