What to Look for in a Good Speech - by Bill Brown DTM

"What I specifically look for in a good speech may be different than what you prefer. I would submit, however, that these three criteria (a clear message, organized flow, and good delivery) need to be there in some form. These are foundations that you build upon and include in your speech writing and in your evaluations".

Exchanging a Pathways Path

If you've chosen a Path in the education program and realize it's not right for you, here's how you can exchange it for another:

1. Call Toastmasters International

2. You must do it within 30 days of purchasing/signing up for the path. No exchanges are permitted after the 30-day period

3. You can only exchange one Path per program year.

FAST TRACK FAQ for Toastmasters members:

1. How will this affect my club?

The goal of Fast Track is to bring new members to your club. While your club experience won’t change, we hope that people who complete the course will seek out a club to gain your valuable evaluation feedback.

2. Is Fast Track free with my membership?

No. Fast Track costs $4.99 USD for both members and non-members.

3. Is there an age requirement for Fast Track?

Unlike Toastmasters clubs, which require you to be age 18 or older, there is no age requirement for Fast Track.

4. I am already a Toastmasters member. Is Fast Track right for me?

If you have a big speech or presentation to prepare for and cannot make it to your club or get on the agenda to practice, you can use Fast Track to quickly refresh your skills.

5. Will I receive credit in Pathways for completing Fast Track?

No, you will not receive credit in Pathways for completing any Fast Track courses.

Introducing Toastmasters Fast Track - Later this month, Toastmasters Public Speaking Fast Track will be rolled out!

The goal of Fast Track is simple—to bring new prospects to Toastmasters and, ultimately, convert them into members. We hope that you will share the Facebook and LinkedIn posts with people who might need help with public-speaking skills but aren’t ready to commit to joining a club. To learn more, watch this video.
