We are a bilingual club!
Located in downtown Montreal, St-Lawrence Toastmasters is a bilingual club. All meetings are held in both English and French.

Congratulations to our long-time member Ann, who received  the Advanced Communicator Bronze (ACB) recognition.

Pietro and our VP Education Martina present Ann her ACB certificate.

As explained on the Toastmasters International website, the Advanced Communicator Bronze (ACB) award is granted to members who have refined and enhanced their speaking skills by having:

  • Achieved Competent Communicator award (or Competent Toastmaster award), and
  • Completed two Advanced Communication Series manuals (each containing five speech projects).

We would like to congratulate Italo Magni for having recently completed his Competent Leadership (CL) manual.

As you may know, at Toastmasters we follow two tracks in parallel: the Communications track and the Leadership track.

Competent Leadership features 10 projects to carry out while serving in meeting roles and participating in other club activities. Each of the ten projects in the CL manual focuses on a different leadership skill, such as critical thinking, giving feedback, planning and implementing, organizing and delegating, etc.

The end result?  The members develop or strengthen the skills that allow them to me more effective leaders.  And remember, leadership is not necessarily limited to a professional setting, but also to activities in our personal lives.  Imagine needing to organize your next camping trip, family dinner over the holidays, or class reunion. Such activities all require planning and other leadership qualities that we can successfully acquire at Toastmasters.

We are proud to have Nastaran Nayebpanah not only as one of our club members, but also as our Area Director.

As Area Director, Nastaran focuses on membership growth and educational achievements in all the Toastmasters clubs so that our Area can achieve minimum recognition of Distinguished Area.  (We are Area 53, part of Division F of District 61.)  She also serves to motivate and assist each Club in the Area to become a Distinguished Club. 

Basically, when a Club or Area has status of “Distinguished”, it attests to the fact that, within the Toastmasters community, we conduct quality activities and actively participate in helping Toastmasters to shine.
