Nous aimons bien demander à nos membres pourquoi ils ont décidé de s’inscrire à notre club. Voici ce que Marc-André a à nous partager :

Mes objectifs sont de développer mon aisance et ma confiance durant les speechs.

Yanick, club president, officially welcomes Patrice and Taylor to our club

Both of them have visited our club on different occasions, and have chosen to become members for unique reasons.

De Patrice :

J’ai décidé de joindre Toastmasters afin d’améliorer mes habiletés d’écrire, de structurer et de présenter un discours dans le cadre de mon emploi. Après avoir assisté à quelques sessions, j’ai rapidement constaté que je pourrais tirer de nombreux apprentissages grace à la retroaction des autres membres et à la structure très professionnelle du club. 

From Taylor:

I joined Toastmasters to improve my public speaking and presentation skills. Each week at St Lawrence Toastmasters so far has been like a masterclass in communication from start to finish. The members are very compassionate and really care about helping others develop their public speaking skills in French and English.


Would you like to unlock your communication potential by elevating your writing, speaking, and presentation skills? Come visit our Toastmasters club and see how expert feedback and a structured learning environment can help you reach your goals.

Here is the programme for the St-Lawrence Toastmasters meeting of April 30, 2024.

The St-Lawrence Toastmasters club in Montreal is proud to welcome Grace as a new member.


Yanick, club president, formally welcomes Grace to our club

Every member comes to Toastmasters with their own personal goals and objectives. Here is Grace sharing hers:

“I joined Toastmasters because as a socially anxious person, I struggle to communicate verbally in an organized, concise, and clear way. I have avoided public speaking for many years, but now I would finally like to begin learning these skills so that I can confidently express myself both in the personal and professional realm. The St Lawrence Club seems like the perfect place to grow and practice public speaking, as a safe and welcoming environment, full of enthusiastic members.”

(The President’s Distinguished Club recognition is the highest level of achievement in the Toastmasters Distinguished Club Program. As Matt Kinsey, 2022-2023 Toastmasters International President, had put it in the March 2023 edition of Toastmasters Magazine, “The Distinguished Club Program is the best measure we have of how effective a club is at meeting its mission. It tells us that members are achieving goals. It tells us that new members are joining, bringing a greater diversity of feedback. It tells us that members are dedicated to improving themselves and that officers are committed to getting the training they need so the members of their club can get the most out of their Toastmasters experience”.)

Congratulations to the St-Lawrence Toastmasters Executive Team for having successfully kept us at this level!

Nous aimons demander à nos nouveaux membres de nous partager les raisons pour lesquelles ils ont décidé de se joindre à notre club. Voici ce qu’ils nous écrivent :

Dans le cadre de mon travail, je dois faire des présentations et parler devant un groupe. Grâce à Toastmasters, j’aimerais améliorer mes habilités de parler en public, faire des meilleures présentations, et développer mon leadership.

It is customary for us to ask new members if they can share some of the reasons that brought them to Toastmasters. Here is what they have to say:

I joined toastmasters to improve my public speaking skills. In my job as a campaign manager working in the animal protection field, being able to communicate clearly, efficiently and with confidence is crucial to my goal of creating positive change for animals.  I look forward to honing this skill with such a talented group of people and believe it will be extremely beneficial for me when acting as a media spokesperson, lobbying government officials or raising awareness in schools about the importance of treating animals with compassion.


I became a member of Toastmasters with the goal of developing into a proficient public speaker, capable of delivering everything from stand-up comedy to startup pitches, and lectures in a clear and engaging way. I am looking forward to growing alongside my fellow members over time. The St. Lawrence Toastmasters Club is arguably one of the finest places to hone our presentation skills, and I believe the work we are all putting in on Tuesday evenings is truly remarkable, and I am more than happy to be a part of it.

                                                       – Gary

We like to ask our new members to share some of the reasons that made them decide to join our club. Here is what Sam writes:

I joined Toastmasters with the goal of enhancing my presentation skills, mastering the art of storytelling, refining my impromptu speaking abilities, and developing my leadership skills.

I aspire to contribute to the growth and development of fellow club members by offering constructive feedback and actively participating in various roles, all while valuing our club’s warm atmosphere, punctuality, rich experience, and the supportive encouragement shared among members.


Are you also looking to enhance your presentation skills, master the art of storytelling, refine your impromptu speaking abilities, and develop your leadership skills? Come visit our Toastmasters club!

Here is the programme for the meeting of March 5, 2024.

When our current VP Membership, Veronica, joined the St-Lawrence Toastmasters Montreal Club in 2022, she initially found it challenging to understand the roles within our executive committee and to familiarize herself with each member.

In an effort to ensure all new members feel embraced, Veronica introduced a valuable initiative – the creation of a document titled ‘Meet our 2023-2024 Executive Committee!‘. This document provides insights into each committee member and the objectives they have given themselves for the club this year.

We even get a glimpse of Veronica herself:


Veronica Schleihauf, VP Membership

Veronica joined Toastmasters to connect over our stories, our impassioned speeches, and a shared desire to continue to grow as people and as a community. She leads digital transformation and data management projects for small businesses and nonprofits.

Objectives this year: To create an environment where all members feel they have the space to develop and contribute their unique voice to our club. I strive to make sure that all guests who visit feel welcomed and included.

Come visit our club and see how our executive committee is helping our Toastmasters Club in Montreal to reach excellence in enabling all members to hone their public speaking and leadership skills.

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

Cela fait plusieurs années que je songe à rejoindre Toastmasters, et mon congé paternité me procure aujourd’hui une occasion de le faire. Mes trois rencontres en tant qu’invité m’ont convaincu que Toastmasters St. Lawrence est l’endroit idéal pour améliorer ma communication verbale et devenir un meilleur orateur. J’apprécie particulièrement la convivialité du club ainsi que l’expertise et la qualité des rétroactions des membres.
