Joyce also has a firm footing in the training field. She enjoys training, public speaking and sharing her knowledge. She cites training a group of youths under a government grant for the 9th Malaysian Plan as the event that embarked her on her current journey. Having been a Toastmaster member for more than 10 years now, training and public speaking comes naturally for her. She has been a mentor and have trained many people in public speaking courses. Her talent in this skill can also be seen as she has won an award for Best Speaker 2004, Trinity Guildhall (London).


Seeing the importance of communication in today's society, Joyce also holds a Certificate in TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language). To her, interaction and being able to communicate with one another is vital in today's workforce.
