Yvon Charest, President and CEO of Industrial Alliance, receives the Toastmasters Communication and Leadership award.

Mr. Yvon Charest, President and Chief Executive Officer of Industrial Alliance Insurance and Financial Services Inc., received the Toastmasters Communication and Leadership award during the Toastmasters International conference held in Quebec City from November 12 to 14, 2010.

As a Toastmasters member, Mr. Charest understands well the benefits in communication and leadership that the Toastmasters education program offers. During the lunch held in his honour, he demonstrated this very eloquently by delivering a very informative speech outlining the path to the core of success.

Many other successes were recognized during the conference, including Alberto Vargas, the winner of the Humorous Speech contest in English, and Stephen Gagné, the winner of the Evaluation contest in English.

This conference brought together members from the 185 Toastmasters clubs making up District 61, which covers the eastern part of Ontario, the northern part of the state of New York, and the province of Quebec. The 12 French-speaking, English-speaking, and Spanish-speaking clubs in the Quebec city area were very proud of their success in hosting this prestigious event.
