Our club president Tommy welcomes Kit to St-Lawrence Toastmasters

We like to ask our new members to give us a quick overview of some of the goals they have given themselves or some of the reasons they have decided to join our club.

Here is what Kit has to share with us:

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.

If  you’d like to see photos with the other contestants, please feel free to consult our weekly programme.  Here is the programme for the Toastmasters meeting of Tuesday October 10, 2017.

La réunion du mardi 3 octobre sera une soirée spéciale à notre club Toastmasters à Montréal. Nous organiserons le Concours Toastmasters du secteur 54 (division F, district 61). Ce concours est composé de concours de discours humoristiques et de concours d’évaluation.

Bien que la soirée ne sera pas dans le format standard de nos réunions hebdomadaires, c’est toujours très intéressant d’y assister. Par exemple, voici comment se déroule habituellement un concours d’évaluation de discours :

  • Il y aura un orateur cible (c’est à dire quelqu’un qui donnera un discours, et cette personne aura été choisie secrètement à l’avance pour préparer un discours pour ce concours). Tout l’auditoire aura l’occasion d’entendre le discours, incluant les concurrents (les évaluateurs) qui évalueront tous ce même discours.
  • Ensuite, les évaluateurs seront invités à quitter la salle et à prendre quelques minutes pour préparer leurs notes d’évaluation.
