Please note that the meeting of June 19, 2018 will be the last meeting before we (the St-Lawrence Toastmasters Club in Montreal) take our customary summer break.

This allows us to take full advantage of the many summer festivities that Montreal has to offer.

(Would you like some ideas of what to do in the city? Here is a link to the Montreal summer festival guide 2018 prepared by the Montreal Gazette.)

We will then be back to our regular Toastmasters meeting schedule starting on Tuesday September 4, 2018.

Veuillez noter qu’il reste deux rencontres avant notre habituelle pause pour l’été :

  • mardi le 12 juin 2018 (avant-dernière rencontre)
  • mardi le 19 juin 2018 (dernière rencontre)

Nous prendrons par la suite une relâche afin de profiter pleinement de toutes les activités estivales qui ont lieu à Montréal.  (La nouvelle session de notre club Toastmasters reprendra dès la première semaine de septembre.)

Congratulations to our St-Lawrence Toastmasters member Tommy Lebel for having recently completed his Toastmasters Competent Communicator project.

How has that helped his leadership skills? Let’s have Tommy explain in his own words…

So many people are thrown into leadership positions without the basic tool set for truly leading people. Leading people the right way is hard work. It’s also a learnable skill that needs to be sharpened continuously. Toastmasters is a great starting point for that.

Toastmasters is probably one of the top 5 best things I have done to boost my career path. Toastmasters is well known for its public speaking aspect but much less for its LEADERSHIP skills building opportunity.
