Interactive workshop led by Hilary Briggs DTM, Immediate Past Division B Governor and founder Early Bird Speakers
There’s a saying “If you’re not growing, you’re dying.” It can apply to us as individuals, as well as to Toastmasters International as a whole. Starting a New Club offers the chance to stretch your leadership skills to new levels, as well as helping to spread the benefits of Toastmasters to more people.
Just as we have a supportive environment to help develop our speaking skills, taking the step of founding a club provides a safe space to work on your Leadership skills too. This workshop will feature input from those who’ve taken this brave step in the last 12 months, including the founders or Presidents from Bloomsbury Speakers, 1st London Toastmasters and Covent Garden Speakers, and help extract their learnings from the journey so far.
The aims are to:
· Inspire confidence so more members take up the challenge and start a New Club
· Share best practice - and discuss some of the typical issues that arise – such as how to build a team to help make it happen
· Draw out the leadership opportunities and their applications in the wider world
So whether you have aspirations to push your leadership potential to the limit, want to share the benefits you’ve gained from Toastmasters with friends and colleagues, or simply want to find out more about what’s involved, book your place now!
