As unity is strength, this conference brings together the experience of all Turin Clubs.
Read our stories and meet us in April!
It is the “oldest” club in Turin 😊.
It held the very first Italian Toastmasters Conference in 2012 and was finally chartered in March 2013. It has been a distinguished club 5 times in 6 years and is currently President’s Distinguished. It is a bi-lingual club with meetings held at a business location in the center of Turin. The club participates regularly in Area and Division events and has had some champions at Area and Division level.
This club was chartered at the beginning of 2016 as a group of enthusiastic people who wanted to grow in public speaking and leadership. The whole program is exclusively in English which gives the Club an international environment and attracts members from all over the world.
The Committee consists of Officers with varying degrees of experience who are all continuously trained through different educational and training programs. Despite its youth, the Club produced Toastmaster Irene Chirico who participated in the 2016 Division Conference in Athens as a winner of the Area Speech Contest.
Club activities started at the beginning of 2015 at Rivalta headquarters of AvioAero to better integrate the company into its new American parent, the global group General Electric. For this reason, meetings are in English, giving members and guests the opportunity to improve the language as well as their public speaking and presentation skills.
Members get involved in order to become more confident speakers and leaders in a safe environment while having fun.
The club mission is to bring public speaking to Turin headquarters of CNH Industrial – one of the largest industrial companies in Italy along with her ‘sister’ FCA. Activities started in 2017 as the first CNH club in Europe: two already existed in North America and a new one has started recently in Madrid.
The club had the luck of having an experienced member among colleagues in Katia Burdet; her passion and commitment brought Toastmasters within the company and made the foundation of the club possible. Even being newbies in Toastmasters champions Paola Vallino and Giulia Ferrari collected awards in Italian, French and English speech contests during the Division Conference of Genoa in 2018.
