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

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.)

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