Harold Broos

President – Harold Broos

For more than twenty years, Harold has been working extensively with Business Analysis to help his client realize great success. His attention to detail, and his consulting background allows him to provide real world experience and leadership for the Chapter.

Harold holds a Bachelor Arts from Western University, and a Masters Certificate for Business Analysis from Schulich School of Business, York University. 

Back in 2011 and 2012 when Harold developed, with the assistance of Michelina DiNunno and help of Thomas Palantzas along with Global Knowledge, the first IIBA Toronto Study Group, it became evident to Harold the value of aligning with Toastmasters International which Mary Ann participated in and spearheaded into reality. 

Also Jenny Garrett took the Small Group Meetup concept Harold envisioned and turned it into something amazing that he hadn't quite seen. As a result of Jenny's Small Group Meetups and Ron Demeda's exam focused Study Groups, over 50% of the last group of 26 were granted a IIBA Professional Designation before the clock ran out on September 22, 2016! We know how to beat the odds hands down!

Mary Anne Richard
IIBA Mississauga Toastmasters Club

1st Ever IIBA Chapter Toastmaster Club


Samia Mourtzakis

IIBA Markham Toastmasters Club

2nd Ever IIBA Chapter Toastmaster Club


It did not come easy, but Mary Anne and Samia with two great teams weathered the storm of building the first two IIBA Toastmasters Clubs. Our next Club will not be #3, because their success has inspired other IIBA Chapters to the same. Third IIBA Chapter Club goes to New York City. Samia and Mary Anne had to navigate many stakeholders, the IIBA Toronto Chapter President, traverse their teams through cultural differences between IIBA and Toastmasters International, motivate and inspire, and develop best practices on the fly. 

The idea was born in 2012 when Harold Broos, while creating and managing the chapter's first Study Group, recognized the need for a Toastmasters International solution. The result realized is IIBA Toronto's first two Toastmasters Clubs, which Samia and Mary Anne with their teams have done a great job of bringing into existence, all the while ensuring the Clubs sustainability. They will sponsor and mentor the next two clubs IIBA Toronto is sponsoring. The two clubs collaborate, share their best practices, and are building a webinar to help other IIBA Chapters and other association chapters start their Toastmasters Clubs. 

IIBA Toronto thanks these two Club Presidents for having done an amazing job and assisting many individuals build their Competent Communicator and Competent Leadership skills. They have participated in a wonderful act of community within the business analysis practice.
