Our History


Tampines Changkat Toastmasters Club (Tampines Changkat TMC) was originally known as NCOC1 (National Community Organisations Council 1) Toastmasters.

In 1992, the Lion City Toastmasters Club was approached by the Ministry of Community Development to setup a Toastmasters club for grassroots leaders. The primary aim of the new club was to train grassroot leaders in effective communication skills so as to facilitate their dealings with the residents in their estates.

After meeting with the officials of the Ministry of Community Development (MCD) to explain the procedures and to work out the administrative support for the new club, Augustine Lee, DTM, of the Lion City submitted his sponsorship of the club.

The original plan was to have five clubs, one each for the north, south, east, west and central. MCD officials proposed to kick off 1 club first and therefore named it as NCOC1 Toastmasters. NCOC means National Council Organising Committee and it covered groups like Residents’ Committees, Women’s Executive Committees, Citizen Consultative Committees and others. Fortnightly meetings were first held at the MCD Building at Thomson Road and  later at the premises of the Grassroot Recreational Club at MacPherson Road. Due to the disbandment of the NCOC by the government in 1996, the club moved to Tampines East Community Club.

It was a good 2 to 3 years in Tampines East Community Club. Due to administrative disagreement with the Community Club at that moment, the club decided to move out to other venue.

The club was then moved to Tampines Central Community Club and we were known as the Tampines Central Toastmasters Club. It had been an eventful 2 years as Tampines Central Toastmasters Club but due to administrative disagreement with the Community Club at that point of time, the club would need to move to another location.

In 2002, the club moved to Tampines Changkat Toastmasters Club, our current home.

And for the past many many years, despite team after team of ExCo taking over and handing over. There is one thing that never change since the club was NCOC1 Toastmasters Club, the club holds the meeting at first and third Thursday of the month.

December Meeting!


We had our December speech marathon at Tampines Changkat Toastmasters Club, and boy was it a fantastic line-up of speeches! 

Arjun - P1 the Ice Breaker
Hailing from Calcutta, Arjun painted his inspirations and aspirations in his amazing speech full of quotes. 

"Ships are safe at its harbour, but that's not what they are built for"
"This is your life, make it last"

Arjun also won the Best Prepared Speech, congratulations!


Muhammad Fadli - P1 Ice Breaker

Can you believe that a national fighter is actually trembling now?

Opening his speech with this hook, Muhammad inspired with us his dream, the importance of dreaming, past present and future. He overcome many odds, to arrive at where he is today. Through his speech, I really got how dreams are not just facets of your past aspirations, but they could be transformed into reality.

"Believe in yourself. Do it. And Dream"


Shakilah - P1 Ice Breaker
A 1st generation Singaporean, Shakilah painted her life story in her ice breaker, an amazing feat! We learnt about how despite the fact that her childhood was quiet, she was not lonely. Such an important distinction to make!

Having had a plan most of her life, NOW, she wants to explore opportunities where she can get be spontaneous, adventurous and vibrant!


Magdalene Thia
Magdalene's personal, emotional story gripped the audience. The story about her father related how miracles, prayers and faith can transcend our reality.


Tia Maria
Happy Birthday to Me, Happy birthday to me! 
Sing this everyday! How? In her Informative Speech, Tia shared with us how we should be more thorough when we wash our hands. How do we make the process more interesting? Sing the Happy Birthday song!

Interesting isn't it?


June Tan - The Digital Pen and Paper
With her warmth and engaging persona, June shared with us the wonders of a digital pen.

Instant recording of your written work, no training, no more paperwork -- what are we waiting for? The Anoto Digital Pen is here to the rescue!
