Welcome to the Toastmasters Pathways learning experience, an exciting, flexible and interactive way to develop your skills and help others in your club develop theirs. Pathways helps you learn communication and leadership skills that you need to succeed. These District 71 incentives will add some fun and recognition to your journeys
Due to COVID lock down most incentives are offered, or can be offered, as qualified expenses that can be claimed, by prior approval, from the District Finance Manager via the Concur Expenses System.

We live in challenging times that require innovative adaptation for our members and clubs to thrive! Is your club motivated to improve the quality of experience members and guests receive? Quality is the difference between wow, ouch, and ho-hum in your members eyes. Clubs need to hear more “Wow! Fantastic! I am going to tell all my friends” to attract new members! Does your club want to challenge itself to set key improvement goals this autumn and show success next spring? If so there are two related incentives for that this year. The incentive runs in conjunction with the Moments of Truth (MOT) activity which is a proven tool to underpin a cycle of continuous quality improvement.
*Area Director or other District officer such as Division Director or member of the District Leadership Team
**If fewer clubs claim the incentive budget will be divided between those that have made successful claims.
*** To claim the Area Director or Club President should write to me (click to email Daniel Sandars PQD) telling me a)The club, the SMART goals that have been set, and the meeting Agenda where the MOT was conducted.
As a club, you want every new and prospective member’s initial interaction with the club to be a positive one. These decisive times when initial impressions are formed are known as Moments of Truth. Part of The Successful Club Series, Moments of Truth outlines how to create a positive first impression of your club and recognize and deal with situations critical to club success in English.
To make sure your goals are clear and reachable, each one should be:
Congratulations on your election to serve as a club officer for 2020-2021! We are thrilled to be working together.
Effective training for club officers is one of the most critical parts of delivering our mission to our members. Without properly trained officers, clubs cannot meet members’ needs or introduce the benefits of Toastmasters to others. Club officer training is also vital means to leadership development.
This year how District 71 delivers training has changed as we prevail over the challenges of the novel Coronavirus. This year we are offered for, the first time, a District wide Club Officer Training (COT) on the 4th of July and then to provide flexibility and choice a set of officer training sessions will be held that are coordinated by our twelve Division Directors and their Areas.
Club Officers deliver the Toastmasters International Club Mission: “We provide a supportive and positive learning experience in which members are empowered to develop communication and leadership skills, resulting in greater self-confidence and personal growth”
We will help you deliver that by addressing three key questions:
We are including generous facilitation activities and brainstorming because in the year ahead members, officers, and their clubs face uncertainty around roles and functions and need innovative thinking and idea.
Why do you need to be a good public speaker?
“Does oratory help me advance in my career?”
“How do I know my presentation is impactful before I show up with it in front of my boss?”
“Is there a secret recipe for those who excel in “Public Speaking”?”
“I’m looking for a public speaking course to help me get over my emotions and learn the basics – do you know any?”
“How can I give feedback without the other person taking it personally?”
You’ve probably heard many such questions? There have been times when at least one of them has crossed your mind.
You are invited to this special meeting, where you will
You will get answers to your questions.
You’ll meet people from all over the world.
You’ll see how public speaking can become fun. You’ll realise your feelings about making presentations easily be transformed.
It’ll be 90 minutes in English. It’s free via the Internet. Afterwards you’re invited to stay on for a “glass” of informal chat with our team. Having Confidence to speak with Influence – we invite you to a Zoom meeting. When: May 19, 2020 @5pm Dublin & London Time

Approximately 10-15 percent of our District’s Toastmasters clubs are in corporate environments (worldwide 60% are) – yet many of these clubs struggle. That’s because we support them using the techniques and knowledge that has worked for community clubs.
To help these struggling clubs, we must:
Think like a genuine stakeholder within the corporation
Meet their expectations of us as their education program provider
Have expectations of them beyond providing a meeting facility and tuition being paid
