Webinar: Vibrant Toastmaster Programs in Corporations

A Handbook for Building and Sustaining Vibrant Toastmaster Programs in Corporations

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

Audio (only) webinar with authour Pat Johnson DTM, Past Toastmasters International President. An informative discussion that can change your interaction with, and expectations of, your corporate programs. We covered these key points

  • The importance of beginnings
  • Preparation prior to your initial meeting with the corporation
  • “Corporate Speak” versus Toastmaster jargon – know your audience
  • The demonstration and/or information meeting
  • Potential challenges you may encounter in the corporation
  • Leadership roles and responsibilities for everyone
  • Supports required from the district team
