For complete rules and details about joining or starting a Speakers Bureau, click here to download the Speakers Bureau Brochure (PDF).
A Speakers Bureau is a good way for organizations and individuals to find speakers to fit their needs, from keynote speakers to school room storytellers.
Speakers Bureaus provide Toastmasters with opportunities for public speaking experience outside of their club. This experience can be helpful for members who wish to pursue a part- or full-time career in public speaking. If you’d like to join an existing speakers bureau, contact your district, division or area officers to see if a bureau has already been established.
If you want to start a Speakers Bureau, work with your club vice president education to appoint an experienced Toastmaster as the bureau chairman. The chairman, VPE and education committee should establish standards for members who will participate.
