Exceptionnellement la réunion aura lieu dans la salle des banquets (située à l’autre côté du stationnement arrière), aussi connue sous le nom l’Espace Canal.

Cédule:

  • 5 décembre 2017 – dernière réunion de 2017
  • 9 janvier 2018 – première réunion de 2018

The St. Lawrence Toastmasters Club in Montreal would like to warmly welcome its new member Henry.

Henry visited us on a couple of occasions, and then decided that he indeed wanted to become a member of our club.

We like to ask our new members what goals they would like to set for themselves.  Here is what Henry has to share with us:

I’m a multilingual Montrealer, but my presentation skills in French were lacking.  I was made aware of St. Lawrence Toastmasters’ reputation for developing exceptional bilingual speakers, and after a few visits, I saw why. And so, I joined this club as part of my effort to become a good public speaker in French. I have no doubt I’ll attain that goal here!

Our club president Tommy welcomes Kit to St-Lawrence Toastmasters

We like to ask our new members to give us a quick overview of some of the goals they have given themselves or some of the reasons they have decided to join our club.

Here is what Kit has to share with us:

I joined Toastmasters because it is a place where people come to grow and give each other the opportunity to expand their voice and enhance their skills. It is a unique place, and an important one. I am looking forward to this adventure, this new pathway, and St. Lawrence Toastmasters has an inspiring group of Toastmasters to be on this voyage with.

Here is the programme for the meeting of October 17, 2017.

La réunion du mardi 3 octobre sera une soirée spéciale à notre club Toastmasters à Montréal. Nous organiserons le Concours Toastmasters du secteur 54 (division F, district 61). Ce concours est composé de concours de discours humoristiques et de concours d’évaluation.

Bien que la soirée ne sera pas dans le format standard de nos réunions hebdomadaires, c’est toujours très intéressant d’y assister. Par exemple, voici comment se déroule habituellement un concours d’évaluation de discours :

  • Il y aura un orateur cible (c’est à dire quelqu’un qui donnera un discours, et cette personne aura été choisie secrètement à l’avance pour préparer un discours pour ce concours). Tout l’auditoire aura l’occasion d’entendre le discours, incluant les concurrents (les évaluateurs) qui évalueront tous ce même discours.
  • Ensuite, les évaluateurs seront invités à quitter la salle et à prendre quelques minutes pour préparer leurs notes d’évaluation.

The Saint-Lawrence Toastmasters Club in Montreal would like to welcome Caroline.

Tommy (our new club president for 2017-2018) welcomes Caroline to the club

We always like to ask our new members to share with us the reasons they decided to join our club.

Here is what Caroline writes:

I recently decided to join Toastmasters (for a second time and this time with the intention of being totally engaged) for several reasons :

Communication is a way to show what we are about and who we are.  With that regards, Indians talk about developing the 5th chakra. I feel this is something in my life that needs improvement.  In the past, I have tested myself with running marathons, my studies and getting a black belt in karate.  Now my new challenge is public speaking.  Why public speaking?

  • To develop leadership skills
  • To inspire
  • Personal growth
  • Use the audience as a lab for feedback for work related discussion topics (products and services)

I have decided to join the St-Lawrence Toastmasters Club mostly because I see the group as being very diversified culturally, professionally and age-wise.  There is also a family atmosphere that I like and this distinction made me adopt the club as my new household where I can grow to give and to receive.
