President’s message:

Communication has always been a challenge to human beings, the irony to this fact is that speaking is the first thing that is asked of us ever since we are born!!

The past 2 years have proven that in today’s context, we need to be able to communicate effectively with each other more than ever, because regardless of the communication form, whether it’s in person or online, our need to communicate is a constant in our social and professional life!!

If you have ever been in a situation where you felt anxious because you had to speak in public, whether it was a school presentation, a job interview or getting up or presenting yourself in a networking event… trust me, you are not the first person to ever feel that way, but it can be the last time you feel that way!! So, if you ever decide to never feel stressed because you had to speak in public, come visit us!! We look forward to seeing you!!

Le mot du président:

La communication a toujours été un défi pour les humains, l’ironie de ce fait est que parler est la première chose qui nous est demandée depuis que nous sommes nés !!

Les 2 dernières années ont prouvé que dans le contexte actuel, nous devons être capables de communiquer efficacement les uns avec les autres plus que jamais, car quelle que soit la forme de notre échange ( réel ou virtuel) on a constamment besoin de communiquer dans notre vie sociale et vie professionnelle !!

Si vous avez déjà été dans une situation où vous vous êtes senti anxieux parce que vous deviez parler en public, que ce soit pour une présentation scolaire, un entretien d’embauche ou pour vous lever et vous présenter lors d’un événement de réseautage… croyez-moi, vous n’êtes pas la première personne à avoir ce sentiment , mais ça pourrait être la dernière fois pour vous !! Alors, si jamais vous décidez de ne plus vous sentir stressé parce que vous deviez parler en public, venez nous rendre visite !! Nous avons hâte de vous voir!!

One of the most important concepts in our lives is speaking (verbally and non-verbally).

Being able to communicate  a message to another person or a group effectively is essential.

Unfortunately, this is a skill we don’t always have the chance to improve.
Fortunately, it can be learned, mastered and can be practiced regularly until it becomes part of you.

  • Would you like to have your ideas heard (at work or in your personal life) ?
  • Do you need preparation for interviews (in French or English) ?
  • Are you planning to become a coach or a public speaker ?
  •  Would you like to inspire people ?
  • Do you have a speech to give and want to make sure the delivery is effective ?
  • Would you like to become a better listener ?
  • Or to become a better project manager ?
  • Do you want to meet people and learn how to connect with them ?
  • Do you want to find a place where you can train your English by public speaking ?
  • To develop your leadership skills ?
  • To improve your presentation skills ? And much more…

Those are the fundamental skills you can learn and master in our club

Join us as guest to get started, and we’ll be happy to welcome you!

How does it work ? Regular bimonthly meetings.


Our meetings are a combination of prepared speeches,

You can find the dates of the next meetings of our club here.

Our club is bilingual which means that you must speak English and French, but you choose the language you speak in.

See an example of one of our club sessions on our blog.

We look forward to welcoming you on board.


Toastmasters is an international organization present in over 122 countries. It all started more than 100 years ago, when people wanted to improve their speaking skills and started to gather and deliver speeches around a toast.

And that’s how: Toastmaster was born. (

When you join our club, you are also joining a strong and close-knit network, where you will have the opportunity to go to meetings and take part in contests all over Europe and the world.  An association where people are interested in one thing, developing their public speaking skills.
