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
