Dear friends,

We hope you are well and enjoying your holiday time!

Due to current public safety restrictions, we will return to holding our meetings online (via Zoom) for the time being. Feel free to attend one of our upcoming meetings! Online meetings are free of charge.

Naturally, it will be a less formal setting than regular meetings, but it should give you a general sense of the Toastmasters program.

Here is the info for our first meeting of 2022.

When:

January 4, 2022, at 6:55 PM EST

For those who have never used Zoom before, just click on the link and you’ll be able to download the program. It’s free and pretty straightforward. We suggest you connect on your computer, but Zoom also works well on a tablet or smartphone.

We invite you to connect a few minutes earlier, simply to confirm that video and audio are functioning properly.

Dear members and guests,

We are currently taking an early pause for the Holiday Season, and will be starting up again in January 2022.  Our meetings are every Tuesday evening, and the first meeting back is scheduled for the first week of January (i.e. on Tuesday January 4, 2022).

Until then, here is a nice little video that shows how a good story can help convey a message that much more successfully. Exactly how, as Toastmasters, we can also make successful and memorable speeches thanks to the power of stories.

Happy Holidays!

-The Saint-Lawrence Toastmasters Club

Chers membres et invités,

Nous prenons actuellement une pause pour le temps des Fêtes (oui, déjà!) et nous reprendrons nos activités en janvier 2022.  Nos réunions ont lieu tous les mardis soirs, et la première réunion au retour est prévue pour la première semaine de janvier (c’est-à-dire le mardi 4 janvier 2022).

D’ici là, voici une petite vidéo qui montre comment une bonne histoire peut aider à faire passer un message avec d’autant plus de succès. Exactement comment, en tant que Toastmasters, nous pouvons aussi faire des discours réussis et mémorables grâce au pouvoir des histoires.

 Joyeuse saison des Fêtes !

-Le club St. Lawrence Toastmasters

Special workshop by Italo Magni!

Métro : Place St-Henri

Tickets: https://thepointofsale.com/tickets/oas211130001

Come attend a special workshop presented by Italo Magni, twice finalist at the Toastmasters World Championship of Public Speaking.

To Be a Person Is to Have a Story to Tell.
So, What’s Your Story?

As Toastmasters, most of us have witnessed firsthand the lure and power of storytelling. Be it a personal story, a famous person’s life lesson story or a parable, well crafted and well told, compelling stories are the magic ingredient that make speeches memorable, valuable and inspirational.

This presentation will focus on providing insights into the following elements in the art of storytelling:

  • The 6 stories you need to know how to tell
  • Your signature story and the 4 F’s of storytelling
  • How to bring your story to life
  • An exercise that will change your journey as a Toastmaster/storyteller
  • Stories told, personal and others, to entertain and educate

This workshop is open to everyone, Toastmasters members as well as non-Toastmasters members.

Cost 15$ (covers our cost for renting the room.
Includes a non-alcoholic beverage as well as crudités.)

To purchase tickets: https://thepointofsale.com/tickets/oas211130001

(Please remember your vaccine passport.)

Cette semaine à notre club Toastmasters, nous aurons les concours de discours et d’improvisation (en anglais et en français).

N’hésitez pas à vous joindre à nous. N’oubliez pas de vous enregistrer au préalable pour voir s’il reste des places.

Voici le programme de la soirée du 23 novembre 2021.

The St. Lawrence Toastmasters Club in Montreal is glad to welcome a new member, Flora.

Flora
Club president Xenia welcomes Flora to St.Lawrence Toastmasters

We like to ask our new members if they can share with us some of the reasons they decided to join. Here is what Flora writes:

"I always imagined myself giving a speech in front of people to connect and convey to them what I had to say but never really could muster the courage and confidence to do that. After stepping into the professional world, I realized more how important and beneficial it could be to connect to people by simply having a good conversation. So that made me be a part of a Toastmasters club which is exactly the place and the people who would guide me get better at public speaking."

– When it was founded in November 1948, it was the only Toastmasters club in Eastern Canada.
