History of the Kampong Ubi Toastmasters Club
Kampong Ubi Toastmasters Club was formerly known as Kowloon-Singapore Toastmasters Club.
Kowloon-Singapore Toastmasters Club (KSTMC) was chartered in June 2000. It used to be an interest group of Kowloon Club, the Association which was formed in 1990 with the initial objective of helping the immigrants from Hong Kong integrate into the local community.

From July 2011, Kowloon-Singapore Toastmasters Club was independent from Kowloon Club. We welcome local Singaporeans and residents of any nationalities to join our Toastmasters club.
We found our new home at Kampong Ubi Community Centre which is just a short walk from Eunos MRT Station. Since January 2012, our monthly meetings have been held there. The name of our club was officially changed to Kampong Ubi Toastmasters Club in March 2012.
The purpose of Kampong Ubi Toastmasters Club is to provide a mutually supportive environment for our members to practise and improve their communication skills, using the methodology of “learning by doing”.
Through educational workshops, prepared speeches and impromptu speeches, our members will be able to learn from the feedback given by the more experienced speakers for self-improvement and development of confidence.
