Ok, so people say we engineers do not speak well. They say when engineers speak, we are relatively “static” and act like a Zombie. We’ll prove them wrong!

On Tuesday the Young Member Section of IMechE Hong Kong Branch is having a workshop: Gesture, pose and voice – making the presentation alive. We are honoured to have Mr Donald Yee to be our guest speaker, and he’ll teach us how to use our voice to speak confidently, expressively, and persuasively. In addition, we’ll also learn how to control our body language to add impact and convey meaning.

I believe everyone can be learned to become a good speaker. We’ll improve and learn and hopefully we’ll all become effective speakers.


Inmates in Philippines practicing “Thriller”

So inmates can have a little fun. We engineers, really, should never try to really act like the thrillers as in the clip.
