Club president Italo welcomes Odile to St-Lawrence Toastmasters

We like to ask our new members to share some of the reasons why they decided to join Toastmasters. Here is what Odile writes:

After seeing major improvements on a few friends who joined Toastmasters, I decided to start the adventure and work on my communication skills. My goal is to break this fear of speaking in front of people. Saint-Lawrence Toastmasters seems to be the right place to be at this very moment.

Here is the program for the evening of Tuesday March 19, 2019

Aimeriez-vous améliorer vos aptitudes de leader?

Toastmasters, en plus de vous aider à pratiquer la parole en public, vous offre la chance de pratiquer votre leadership via une multitude de rôles: animateur de la soirée, chronomètre, animateur des improvisations, etc. Et ce, sans compter tous les rôles possibles au sein du comité exécutif du club.

Pour vous faire une idée concrète des possibilités, venez assister à l’une de nos rencontres! 

Visitez le club Saint-Lawrence Toastmasters à Montréal.

Voici le programme pour la soirée du 12 mars 2019

Dans une entrevue à l’émission radio Parasole et gobelets, le journaliste et animateur Jean-Luc Mongrain partage son expérience par rapport à la prise de parole en public.

Mongrain a eu la chance d’être encouragé par un professeur dès son jeune âge. Ce professeur lui a servi de mentor afin de participer à un événement de parole en public qui fut un succès. Tout le monde connaît la suite: Jean-Luc Mongrain est devenu une icône de la télévision québécoise en tant que journaliste et animateur.

Il mentionne également l’une des raisons pour lesquelles la parole en public en terrifie plus d’un:

C’est très compromettant de prendre la parole, c’est se livrer un peu, c’est se laisser au jugement des autres.

– Jean-Luc Mongrain, journaliste

Il partage également ses trucs de base pour prendre la parole — base que vous pouvez pratiquer et peaufiner grâce à Toastmasters:

  • Être préparé;
  • Apporter quelques notes;
  • Être confiant, simple et sympathique dans ses propos et dans sa gestuelle.

Pour écouter l’entrevue complète:

A big thanks to Bob Palmer for recently informing us that the St-Lawrence Toastmasters Club in Montreal is the 9th oldest club in the world outside of the United States.

Bob is a fellow Toastmaster and historian from District 12 in California, USA. With 45 years at Toastmasters, one of his side hobbies is to research club histories. Here is what he prepared:

"I weeded out all the early club numbers that had been either retired by Toastmasters International or chartered elsewhere in other years and came up with a list of clubs which are STILL ACTIVE in the places they were chartered."

Oldest Toastmasters clubs

Bob had recently also sent us some other interesting information about our club history, which we posted when our club celebrated its 70th birthday.

Since we are the oldest club in Eastern Canada, we also like to jokingly say that we are the most experienced club too! 🙂

Interested in visiting the most experienced Toastmasters club in Eastern Canada? Come attend one of our meetings! Here is the agenda for the meeting of February 12, 2019.
