Special Guest & Featured Speaker

Guest We are excited and fortunate to feature our International Director, Monique Levesque-Pharoah, DTM as our guest speaker at the Spring Conference.  Monique will provide the keynote presentation and plenary session on Saturday, May 6th.

As a member of the Toastmasters International Board of Directors, Monique Levesque-Pharoah, DTM is a “working ambassador” for Toastmasters International. She works with the Board to develop, support and modify the policies and procedures guiding Toastmasters International in fulfilling its mission, empowering individuals to become more effective communicators and leaders.

A Toastmaster since 1994, Monique is a charter member of her home club, Vital Words, in Winnipeg, Canada. Throughout her journey, she has held several high-profile leadership positions within Toastmasters, including District Director, Region Advisor, and currently International Director. Monique also received the Presidential Citation award in 2015 for her continual support and dedication to the organization.

Professionally, Monique manages sponsorship and events at Health Sciences Centre Foundation in Winnipeg. In her role, she’s responsible for identifying and implementing sponsorship strategies to meet her organization’s strategic, operational and fundraising goals.

Monique credits Toastmasters for her professional success: “Whether it’s giving an effective media interview for a charity I represent, using the High Performance Leadership program to successfully launch a new event, or recruiting and working effectively with volunteers, I have to credit Toastmasters.”
