We are now at the Singapore Polytechnic InnoVillage@SP perched on a hilltop.

There is a short youtube video clip on our main page.

if you are arriving for the first time, please email us at sptoastmasters@gmail.com, more info will be send to you before your arrival. Cheers.

We hope to see you there!

What to do when you are stumped for an answer? What to say when your boss raised a question to you? All of us face these scenarios which make us feel naked. Our mind went blank as we could only muster an "Errrr" in the face of tough questions posed by our lecturers at school, superiors at work or even children at home! Escaping doesn't work! It only harms your credibility. So what to do???

Before you start vexing over the question raised, stay calm and follow the below tips:

1. Do you understand what is the question asking about? It is perfectly alright to spend a few seconds to think through that question before answering. If you are still unsure, there is no harm in confirming the question with the other party.

2. Now that you understand the question, you need some time to think..? Tick tock tick tock. Nobody will be patient  enough to give you 1 minute to answer a question. Well, buy yourself time! Repeat the question, talk about anything related to the question but keep it open! For example:

A: Do you think social media is good?
B: Well......social media is quite vague....Consist of a few platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, myspace etc etc with a vast network. 

You see? B gave a reply which buy him some time! Try not to dwell into details else it will be tough to get back on track.

3. Hopefully by now, you have bought yourself some time. Your train of thoughts should be coming too. And all we lack is a format! We don't want messy answers because it makes you uncredible! Organise your answer with an opening, body and end. State your point of view, buff it up with examples and stories, and finally reinforce your point of view. Or perhap you can do in chronological order! A seuqence of events happen, ending with the finale! While there are no fix format, just make sure that your answer is LOGICAL AND SMOOTH! 

So......seems a bit difficult? Trust me. All you need are practices! A Toastmaster for a year, I am still practising, and improving.

There is the brazilian virgin hair uk the most commonly seen version and typically the most affordable of the wig cap. Typically the standard wig cap has the hair machine-sewn on, and the brazilian virgin hair themselves are pre-designed into a specific style. The main advantage of this style wig cap is that the lace front wigs uk is given a natural "lift," which makes it appear full of volume. While wigs made of the hair from horses, buffalo, yak, wool, and feathers are found quite commonly lace front wigs uk have greatly increased in popularity. Almost indistinguishable from human hair, synthetic wigs are typically easier in terms of maintaining and care for. However, it's important to remember that because they are lace wigs they are damaged easily is the wearer attempts to curl, blow dry, or hot roll them. For those interested in wearing a customized hairpiece, a vacuum wig might be just the thing.
