In his various professional and volunteer roles, Steven is often called upon to facilitate, train, inform, interview, motivate, and entertain. Indeed, for most of us, our opportunities to grow and succeed at work and socially hinge largely upon our ability to impress and influence others.
When Steven was laid off from Lockheed Martin Canada, in 2004, he immediately joined two professional societies with the goal of rebuilding his social network and launching a new career as a self-employed Lean and TQM consultant. One of those societies was the ASQ. The other was Toastmasters International.
If you have ever wished that you could be a more effective and influential speaker, then Steven will suggest you seriously consider joining Toastmasters International.
If you agree, disagree, or just wonder why, then join us at our Networking event on September 17.

For the second year of this electronic Newsletter, I have a lot of ideas and projects. But, I can not achieve them alone.
One of them is to encourage the dissemination of knowledge while presenting to the public men and women from our area. I would like to know of any regional quality professionals you would like to hear from and on what quality subject. I will gather this information and try my best to have interviews with those you referred. Of course, if you know someone very interesting and you want to interview him or her yourself, I would be pleased to publish your article. The goal is evidently to share the results with you via our Newsletter, to increase knowledge, to give a public voice to interesting people in our community and to stimulate participation.
May I also remember you that you can send me your French or English articles related on quality if you want to publish them in the ASQ 401 Montreal Section Newsletter.

Having ASQ certification gives you an edge in the market and can significantly increase your income.
ASQ Certification often leads to higher paying employment. The money invested in education and certification increases chances of finding employment quickly in the downsizing environment we live in. People who take the section-sponsored refresher courses, and spend at least twice as much time as spent in the classroom on self-study, have an 80%, or better, chance of passing the examination on the first attempt.
