We like to ask our new members to share with us some of the reasons why they decided to join our club.  Here is what Ignacio writes:

I decided to join Toastmasters to improve my public-speaking skills and also be more confident in languages other that my mother tongue.

Additionally, St. Lawrence Toastmasters bring me the opportunity to develop my skills in a friendly environment, having the chance to share experiences, topics, and life, learning through amazing Toastmasters colleagues.

J’ai joint Toastmasters car je souhaite développer mes habiletés de leadership et mon assurance à parler en public, tant dans mon travail que dans ma vie de tous les jours.  Dès ma première visite au club St-Lawrence, j’ai tout de suite su que je pourrai accomplir cela aux côtés d’une équipe dynamique et chaleureuse.

“You’re scheduled to give a speech in a week or two. You’re sitting at your computer, staring nervously at a blank screen. Countless questions swirl around in your mind: How should I start? How do I get the audience’s attention? Should I use humor? Do I need an outline? How do I conclude?

As a Toastmaster, you have access to resources galore. Each speech project has its own templates and guidelines. You also have mentors to help you over hurdles. But wouldn’t it be nice to have a quick, handy guide to all the basics? A one-stop shop that concisely covers the fundamentals of how to write an effective speech—Speechwriting 101, condensed into a few magazine pages?”

You can read more in the October 2018 issue of Toastmaster magazine, a monthly magazine available to all members.

Speechwriting 101

If you want a friendly and safe environment in Montreal where you can practice giving a speech, then Toastmasters meetings are a perfect medium.  Come visit the St-Lawrence Toastmasters Club in Montreal to find out more.

Italo (président de notre club) souhaite la bienvenue à Delphine

Nous aimons bien demander à nos nouveaux membres ce qui les a incités à se joindre à Toastmasters.  Voici ce que Delphine nous explique :

Je suis toujours à la recherche de me dépasser, je vais là où je sens que j’ai besoin de travailler, là où je sens que ma peur m’empêche de me réaliser pleinement.

Avec Toastmasters, je souhaite acquérir la confiance et l’assurance de pouvoir exprimer mes idées, mes opinions, mes croyances à tout public.

Apprendre l’art de la communication avec leadership et plaisir.

Voici le programme pour la réunion du 25 septembre 2018.

One of the many skills that we get to develop at Toastmasters is the ability to prepare and deliver powerful speeches that can inspire an audience, and even persuade with power so that people will want to take action.

Here is Harrison Ford speaking at the
Global Climate Action Summit that took place in San Francisco recently.

(From: NowThis. Full speech can be found here or here.)

If we focus on the content of the speech, we notice that he inspires the audience by appealing to noble motives and challenging the audience to achieve a higher level of beliefs or achievement. He does this, for example, by speaking with passion and by using logic and emotion to support his position. Here are some excerpts:

“You’re here, I’m here, because we care. Not just for today. But we care passionately for the future.”

“While you work to recognize the challenge of climate change, I beg you, do not forget nature. Because the destruction of nature today accounts for more global emissions than all of the cars in the world. We can put solar panels on each and every house. We can even turn every car into an electric vehicle. As long as Sumatra burns we’ll have failed.”

“Nature doesn’t need people; people need nature.”
