From the Toastmaster Leadership Institute (TLI)

We are delighted to serve District 114 through the Toastmaster Leadership Institute in this Toastmaster year 2021/2022, and look forward to working closely with all toastmasters across the district in supporting the District to carry out its mission to build new clubs and support all clubs in achieving excellence.
Embracing the New Normal:
The last year was particularly tough for some clubs and members as we were all forced to go online for our meetings, but this year we plan on fully embracing this new normal, and utilising available virtual tools to diversify the learning opportunities open to Toastmasters members, and by so doing offer even greater value to the community.
Your Ideas:
We will be delighted to receive more ideas on how you can help us fulfil our mandate even better, and we are happy to hear from you at any time!
We will present two modules during this event.


Marketing drives prospective members to get curious, check out the toastmaster experience, and decide whether toastmasters is for them. In this session, participants examine prospective member motivation; craft corresponding marketing messages; and identify communication channels, tools, and resources that support club marketing efforts.

Member Engagement & Retention

This is one of the biggest challenges clubs face as the initial excitement of joining Toastmasters wears off, and the pressures of everyday life begin to squeeze back in. High engagement drives member achievement, which leads to membership growth and strengthened community.

Inviting collaborators:

District 114 has come fully of age, by now, and we are eager to tap into the combined our combined experience and skill. To this end, we would like to invite you to collaborate with us via two avenues:

Discover the Trainer Within:

A few times throughout the year we will offer the Toastmaster Speaker to Trainer training, which is meant to equip members with the skills to support the district in carrying out Toastmaster Training. A major focus will be on maximising the opportunities offered by the virtual environment to provide flexible and interactive learning opportunities. This will not only give members the opportunity to develop valuable transferable skills, but it will also build our capacity as a district to support the different clubs in growing and excelling.
