The Odette Finance Association and Odette’s Toastmasters Club collaborated and had the privilege to host a full-day with Andrew (Ande) Clumpus, a Senior Manager at TD Securities. Odette students ranging from Undergrad to Post-grad met with Ande for various sessions including informal conversations and a roundtable question and answer period where students were able to dissect a respectable industry professional’s brain to enhance their marketability in the work place and focus on their developmental goals.
Ande also had the chance to address the students in a more open setting and formal presentation. He spoke about his journey, what helped him achieve his accomplishments thus far, his current leadership involvement and the importance of it. He also spoke about some of the major trending initiatives TD is taking part in, and what the TD Bank Group looks for in hiring students.
Odette Toastmasters Club then had the opportunity to have this 2015 Toastmasters World Champion of Public Speaking sit in on a Toastmasters meeting here at Odette. He gave the Club insight as to how he managed being the youngest ever representative of his Toronto Toastmaster District and about his Toastmaster experiences, especially being a World Champion finalist at the tender age of 26.
