Effective Speaking & Presentation Skills Holiday Public Speaking Workshop

LiFE Academy is organising an Effective Speaking & Presentation Skills Workshop in conjunction with the coming school holidays. This workshop is specially designed for those in the age group of 12 to 18 years of age.

Usually parents are at wit’s end trying to keep their children occupied during the holidays. These 3-days will be very practical and allows each participant the opportunity to present speeches in different situations.

Do bear in mind that this is a public speaking workshop and not a child-minding service so we will discourage those timid and exceptionally shy and quiet from attending.

We will charge a fee of RM450 for the entire 3 days which includes tea breaks and lunch and materials.

For children of DISTED staff we will provide a special rebate.

2017 DISTED SMART’s Staff Gathering

The First SMART get-together for the new Team was held on Thursday, 27 April. The year the committees had a little twist to the normal format.

Instead, the normal gathering, a birthday celebration to all birthday babies from January – April, 2017.

A speech was presented by newly appointed chairman Mr Loga Vijaindran and then followed by birthday cake cutting.

All staff present enjoyed and had fun.
