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.

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.

====================

Would you like to find out how you can develop your leadership skills and inspire people? Come visit our club!

Here is the programme for the Toastmasters meeting of Tuesday September 25, 2017.

Yanick (our club president) welcomes Irene

We like to ask our members why they decided to join Toastmasters.  Here is what Irene had to share with us:

“My original reason for joining Toastmasters was to get comfortable speaking in public. I believe I found a relaxed ambiance that will allow me to get over my inhibitions and out of my comfort zone. St. Lawrence Toastmasters has warm, supportive members, and in time, I am certain I will improve my speaking skills and do so with absolute confidence and ease. The members’ feedback is a true learning tool for growth and improvement.”

Ghenadie-Malmo-Toastmasters

Ghenadie, member of our St. Lawrence Toastmasters Club, recently visited a club in Sweden during a business trip. Here are his comments about the experience:

While business travelling in Sweden, I had the pleasure of visiting the Area 2, Division G, District 95 Malmo Toastmasters club. It felt like home and all people were warm and welcoming. This was a great experience and I encourage anyone who travels to look for TM Clubs in the surroundings and visit them.

If you too are interested in joining a world-wide organization, come visit us at our next meeting!
