Here is a note from Pietro di Benedetto, one of our members who recently competed in the Toastmasters World Championship of Public Speaking .


Last Thursday Sept 23rd and Friday the 24th , I was in Toronto.  When I’m in Toronto my routine is very simple: See as many clients and prospects during the day. Then I have dinner by myself and stay in my hotel room, watch TV and eat Doritos all night.

I decided to keep away from the TV and Doritos and break away from tradition. I decided to attend a Toastmasters meeting in T.O.  After all my research  in District 60, I finally found an advanced TM Club which met on a Thursday night.  They were called the ”Top of Toronto Select Speakers” Toastmasters Club .

They were so accommodating and had me as a guest speaker.  I recited my District winning speech and in I must say in all humility, they were impressed, and very happy I attended.

Most importantly, they were true Toastmasters: Welcoming, Warm, Friendly and made me feel as though I’ve known them for years.

I think it’s a good idea to write about this in our Website and Thank the “Top of Toronto Select Speakers ” for their hospitality and to tell them (as I did) they are always welcome to visit St. Lawrence Toastmasters club in Montreal whenever any one of them is in La Belle Province.
