The St. Lawrence Toastmasters club in Montreal would like to warmly welcome some of its recent members, Sebastian, Adam and Gaetan.

We like to ask new members to share some of the reasons why they decided to join our club. Here is what they have to say.

From Sebastian:

"Although I had to give countless presentations during my school days, I never really felt comfortable giving speeches in front of large crowds. Therefore, I tried to avoid such situations during my university studies. While in Canada, however, I was again confronted with this shortcoming, this time even in a language other than my mother tongue. Under these circumstances I decided to join a Toastmasters club and I am very happy to have found the St. Lawrence Club."

From Adam:

Learning is a matter of getting in the reps. Taking in the feedback to be at your best. After attending a few meetings at St Lawrence Toastmasters, I knew this was the team to get me there.

Welcoming? Check ??

Track record of excellence? Check ??

Well-organized. Check ??

A fun, friendly, supportive atmosphere? Check, check check.

Not to mention the ability to practice my speaking in English & French.

These are the folks who can get you where you want to go in your public speaking journey. But don’t take my word for it, come check out a meeting to see for yourself!

From Gaetan

(Still to come)


Interested in visiting our club? Here is the programme for the meeting of January 31, 2023.

Notre club fait partie du secteur 62, qui regroupe plusieurs clubs. Chaque année des concours amicaux sont organisés entre les clubs du même secteur. Les concours qui ont eu lieu récemment étaient des concours d’évaluation (un en anglais, et un en français), ainsi que des concours de discours (un en anglais, et un en français).

Nous sommes fiers d’accueillir Bin comme nouveau membre du club St. Lawrence Toastmasters à Montréal.

Nous avons l’habitude de demander aux nouveaux membres de nous communiquer les motivations qui les ont poussés à joindre notre club. Voici ce que Bin mentionne :

“J’ai décidé de rejoindre St-Lawrence Toastmasters afin d’améliorer mes capacités de communication et de leadership. Je n’ai pas l’habitude de parler devant un public et c’était un frein important à mes perspectives personnelles et professionnelles. J’ai beaucoup appris depuis que je suis devenu membre et il me reste encore beaucoup à apprendre. 

Je suis vraiment ravi de faire partie d’un groupe chaleureux et j’espère pouvoir continuer à m’améliorer à chaque semaine.”

Aimeriez-vous vous habituer à parler aisément en public? N’hésitez pas à venir nous visiter.

Voici le programme pour la réunion du 24 janvier 2023.

We would like to wish a warm welcome to Veronica as well as Francisco, two of our more recent members.

As is customary in our club, we like to ask our new members if they would like to share some of the reasons why they joined our club. Here is what Veronica has to say:

"I am thrilled to have found St Lawrence Toastmasters! Since attending my first meeting as a guest I have learned so much week after week. I am very grateful to all the club members who have been so supportive and welcoming. What a joy to join this group who share an interest in personal development and striving for excellence! Can’t wait to see where this journey leads".

Francisco actually joined our club in 2017, then took a break for a few years. He then came back recently to join again as a member. Just like going to the gym, sometimes it takes a little break to recenter and reestablish priorities like investing in yourself. Welcome back Francisco!
