The Saint-Lawrence Toastmasters Montreal club would like to warmly welcome Bertrand as a new member. After visiting us on a few occasions, he is jumping into the adventure and is joining our club.

Bertrand new Toastmasters Montreal member

Italo, our club Sergeant-at-Arms, welcomes new member Bertrand

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

Growing up I have always been a timid person, be it to express my desires or to start a conversation with a stranger. When I was driving for Uber, this became very much evident; in most of my rides, after our initial greetings there was nothing more to talk about until the final farewell greetings once we reached the destination.

One day, I came across this rider with whom I conversed throughout the entire trip. I became curious to ask him if he knew where I could learn how to build my interpersonal and public speaking skills.

He asked if I had heard about Toastmasters, which I had not. But when I retired I quickly did a Google search and sent a couple of queries to various clubs. St. Lawrence Toastmasters was the first to respond, and the rest is history!


Would you like know more about how Toastmasters can help you strengthen your interpersonal skills? Come visit us!

Here is the programme for the meeting of April 26, 2022.
