Welcome back to the St. Lawrence Toastmasters Club in Montreal! After a well-deserved and relaxing summer break, our club meetings are now back in session.

We meet every Tuesday evening from 7 PM to 9:05 PM.

How can Toastmasters help you to become a more effective public speaker and a stronger leader?  By helping you to develop your presentation skills and giving you a safe environment in which to practice.

Here is the programme for the meeting of September 6, 2022.

Veuillez noter que nous sommes présentement en pause pour l’été (comme à chaque été).

Cela nous permet 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, soit le mardi 6 septembre 2022.)

Voulez-vous des exemples de festivals prévus à Montréal pour l’été 2022? Voici le guide des festivals d’été montréalais, préparé par Tourisme Montréal.

Please note that we (the St-Lawrence Toastmasters Club in Montreal) are currently on 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 2022 prepared by Tourisme Montréal.)

We will then be back to our regular Toastmasters meeting schedule starting on Tuesday September 6, 2022.

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.

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!

Dear friends,

We hope you are well and enjoying your holiday time!

Due to current public safety restrictions, we will return to holding our meetings online (via Zoom) for the time being. Feel free to attend one of our upcoming meetings! Online meetings are free of charge.

Naturally, it will be a less formal setting than regular meetings, but it should give you a general sense of the Toastmasters program.

Here is the info for our first meeting of 2022.

When:

January 4, 2022, at 6:55 PM EST

Link for the Zoom meeting:

https://umontreal.zoom.us/j/88684049082

Meeting ID:

886 8404 9082

Passcode:

For those who have never used Zoom before, just click on the link and you’ll be able to download the program. It’s free and pretty straightforward. We suggest you connect on your computer, but Zoom also works well on a tablet or smartphone.

We invite you to connect a few minutes earlier, simply to confirm that video and audio are functioning properly.

Dear members and guests,

We are currently taking an early pause for the Holiday Season, and will be starting up again in January 2022.  Our meetings are every Tuesday evening, and the first meeting back is scheduled for the first week of January (i.e. on Tuesday January 4, 2022).

Until then, here is a nice little video that shows how a good story can help convey a message that much more successfully. Exactly how, as Toastmasters, we can also make successful and memorable speeches thanks to the power of stories.

Happy Holidays!

-The Saint-Lawrence Toastmasters Club
