Club president Tommy welcomes Xenia to St. Lawrence Toastmasters

We like to ask our new members to share with us the reasons they joined our club. Here is what Xenia has to say:

Toastmasters, in my opinion, is not just a place to develop skills, but also to share perspectives, grow a little every time and cultivate a richer emotional world. It’s all about the journey, not the destination and I am truly happy to have started my journey with the St. Lawrence Toastmasters family.

Le club St-Lawrence Toastmasters à Montréal est fier d’accueillir deux nouveaux membres Catherine et Raphael !

Tommy, président de notre club, accueille Raphael et Catherine

Nous avons l’habitude à notre club de demander à nos membres de partager avec nous les raisons pour lesquelles ils se sont joints à Toastmasters, ou les buts qu’ils aimeraient se donner.

Voici de Catherine :

The reason I joined Toastmasters is because I believe it is necessary for me to improve my communication skills and master public speaking. My core purpose in life is to help and inspire others. Since I want to be successful and make a difference, I know I have to be able to connect, listen and deliver in both languages (English and French).

Because public speaking is way out of my comfort zone, joining Toastmasters forces me to take action, to be accountable and to face my fears. It is one of my 2018 commitments to personal growth. What a better way to learn than to surround myself with achievers and the best!

Last but not least, thank you all for making me feel so welcome ! The professionalism, structure and quality of speakers is uplifting!

Et voici la note de Raphael :

Premièrement je ne connaissais rien à Toastmasters, mais seulement après la première rencontre en tant qu’invité, j’ai tout de suite compris que se serait un très bon outil. Peu importe l’objectif qu’on veut atteindre, on a quelque chose a y gagner ! Pour commencer je veux devenir plus a l’aise a parler devant un groupe, améliorer mon parler donc mieux écouter, mieux répondre, et développer du leadership .

Un beau défi que je souhaite sérieusement accomplir !

Merci au membre du club pour le bel accueil !

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!

À l’occasion de la réunion du 14 novembre 2017, les membres du club St. Lawrence Toastmasters à Montréal ont pu célébrer les 69 ans du club.

En fait, notre club est le club Toastmasters le plus ancien à l’est de Windsor. (Nous aimons nous vanter amicalement et à la légère que puisque nous sommes le plus ancien club, nous sommes naturellement le club le plus expérimenté. Smile)

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.
