World Speech Day Singapore 2017: Empowerment Through Education
On 15 March 2017, advocates from over 80 countries including Singapore came together to celebrate the power of speech on World Speech Day (WSD). They also shared ideas on how we can make the world a better place to live in. The events were telecasted live through social media.
WSD Singapore 2017 was organised by YMCA Toastmasters Club and WSD Singapore 2017 Planning Committee, and supported by YMCA of Singapore. Themed ‘Empowerment through Education’, our local speakers took to the stage to shed light on how education can change lives and build dreams.
One of the speakers, Mr Joe Heng (Head of Higher Education & Business Development, YMCA Education Centre) spoke on how YMCA Higher Education, in partnership with University of Strathclyde, prepares Leaders of Tomorrow by transferring values and knowledge to the students as part of their journey in acquiring the Strathclyde MBA qualification.
