"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other peoples thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own Inter voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. Somehow they already know what you want to become. Everything else is secondary."

Stacey Ianco Portrait

Stacey Ianco

VP Marketing

Hi! My name is Stacey Ianco and I am in my third year at Ryerson, majoring in marketing and minoring in professional communication. I was always passionate about public speaking and enjoyed doing presentations in front of audiences. I came across Ryerson Toastmasters and saw how perfect joining this student group would be. Not only would it help my communication skills for future job settings, co-op opportunities or professional interactions, but it would be a great way to improve my skills and obtain useful feedback. Public speaking is an important skill that requires hard work and dedication and being in this club has helped me learn not only these qualities, but others including leadership and organization.

Jacob Rodrigues

VP Management

Hello! My name is Jacob Rodrigues, currently pursuing my Bachelor of Commerce degree with a Major in Economics and Management Science. As a 4th year Co-op student, I am also currently pursuing a role at Celestica as a Supply Chain Production Planner, specializing in operations and lean management. As VP of Management at Toastmasters, the responsibilities I undertake vary depending on the needs of the club; in general it is the goal of mine and of the other executive members to ensure everything runs smoothly, from Marketing to Events to Education. As a student-run club and internationally recognized brand, Toastmasters had tremendously impacted my ability to present, speak, and uphold myself in all social settings, both business and casual. It is because of the skills I learnt and developed with Toastmasters I find myself in the positions and roles I fulfill today, and I encourage all who want to improve those same skills to join Toastmasters today!

Sabrina Loc

Director of Education

My name is Sabrina Loc, a third-year Marketing student. I joined Ryerson Toastmasters in September 2020 and have been an executive team member ever since. Ryerson Toastmasters has aided me in sharpening my leadership skills. Completing the Dynamic Leadership pathway, I learned how to lead, listen, collaborate, and have fun while speaking for an hour every Tuesday! Being a part of the Education Department, my Vice President and I strive to make every meeting valuable, running everything in the background from organizing and scheduling to encouraging others to meet educational milestones. Ryerson Toastmasters has enriched my undergraduate life and taught me many valuable lessons, and I will continue to learn as I aim to complete my second pathway.

Allen Tumbaga

Director of Membership, Marketing, and Events

I first heard of Toastmasters while taking a public speaking course. When I found out that Harvard Toastmasters was collaborating with Ryerson Toastmasters, I was quick to join. Even with a bit of public speaking experience, I found my skills improving significantly since joining the club. I believe that by being a part of Ryerson Toastmasters is the best way to improve and enhance your public speaking skills.

Jasleen Gosal

Senior Director of Marketing

Growing up, I was shy, always finding myself fearing in-class presentations and having trouble initiating conversations with new peers. As I grew older, I realized my shyness and introversion had become a hindrance to my success, and that it was time to get out of my comfort zone. This realization led me to join Ryerson Toastmasters. For me, Toastmasters is a gateway to not only foster my self-confidence but my personal and career growth as well. I hope to help others like me overcome their fear of public speaking and bring out their inner leader. Remember it’s at Toastmasters “Where Leaders are Made”!

Brandon Lee Pack

Director of Events

I have always considered myself an extroverted person, which I believe stems from my Caribbean background. This has always played towards my advantage, having a passion for communication and having strong confidence. My love for communication has lead to many interesting paths from pursuing languages in Spanish and French, debating and public speaking. Due to these experiences, this allowed myself to set ambitious goals, in minoring in 3 subjects of Information Technology, E-business and Finance along with gaining a love for sales, being a member of SLP's TRUST Development Team. Thanks to my personality and enjoyment of new adventures, other opportunities arose in my life from singing competitions, modelling to intramural waterpolo. As these experiences played a key role in my personal development, I look forward in seeing how these new ventures continue my growth.
