Nous sommes un club bilingue!
Le club St-Lawrence Toastmasters est un club bilingue à Montréal. Nos réunions hebdomadaires se déroulent en français et en anglais.

We are a bilingual club!
Located in downtown Montreal, St-Lawrence Toastmasters is a bilingual club. All meetings are held in both English and French.

Have you ever watched someone give a presentation with his hands clutched as if he wanted to cover his privates?  Or perhaps you’ve seen a speaker talking with her hands in her pocket, or with her hands on her hips? 

Such stances can make a speaker seem nervous, less confident, insecure, too casual, or even aggressive, depending on the body language that is projected.

Here is a video from Dananjaya Hettiarachchi (2014 Toastmasters International world champion of public speaking) revealing four essential body language tips.

Are you interested in seeing how you can improve your public speaking skills and even gain new ones?

Then visit the Saint-Lawrence Toastmasters Club, a bilingual Toastmasters Club in Montreal.

Here is the programme for the meeting of May 22, 2018.

Here is an interesting article giving useful tips on how to avoid using some of the dreaded filler words “Um” and “Uh” when speaking.

“Becoming Well-Spoken:
How to Minimize Your Uh’s and Um’s”

Although it’s from the website “The Art of Manliness", the article can apply to both sexes. It explains why we tend to use filler words and how they can be detrimental, and then gives suggestions that can help to minimize the use of such fillers.

Um and other filler words

Here is another interesting post related to the same subject:

“Um, Uh, and You Know: Killer Fillers in Public Speaking”

Nous vous invitons à assister à une des rencontres de notre club St-Lawrence Toastmasters Montréal. Nous sommes un club bilingue.

Voici le programme de la soirée du 1er mai 2018.

The Saint-Lawrence Toastmasters Club in Montreal would like to warmly welcome its new member Richard.

Stilian (our VP Education) welcomes Richard to the club

We like to ask our new members to share with us some of the reasons why they have decided to join Toastmasters. Here is what Richard writes:

I’ve always wanted to improve my presentation skills but thought a more fixed "class" setting was too limiting. I heard about Toastmasters and chose the closest club to where I live. How fortunate was I to end up with the best one there is? Smile

I’m looking forward to everyone’s comments and pointers. I hope every member will feel open and candid with me. I’m here to learn, make new friends, and contribute to an already amazing dynamic.

Un chaleureux accueil à Réjean, qui se joint au Club St-Lawrence Toastmasters.

Réjean Nguyen
Stilian, VP Éducation du club, accueille notre nouveau membre Réjean

Nous aimons demander à nos membres de partager les raisons pour lesquelles ils ont décidé de se joindre à notre club.

Voici ce que Réjean mentionne :

Après avoir entendu parler de Toastmasters, visité quelques clubs et mûri pendant longtemps ce projet, j’ai pris la décision que 2018 était le moment de sauter la clôture pour transiter de « groupie d’orateurs » à « orateur pour groupies ».

Avec Toastmasters, j’aspire à acquérir et développer des habiletés en art oratoire qui me serviront toute ma vie dans mon impact sur ma communauté, autant dans mes relations personnelles que professionnelles. L’aspect bilingue du club Saint-Lawrence Toastmasters est clairement un atout dans ma décision de me joindre.

Voici le programme pour la réunion du 27 mars 2018.
