What advice do you have for potential Accredited Speaker Program applicants? 

I would recommend they first write out their speech and then craft it into a spoken word presentation. Once it is in a presentation format, the speech needs to be spoken before in my opinion at least 50 non-toastmaster groups. This will give the speaker enough time to understand their speech and it's impact or value to an audience. Only then would I suggest they apply for the AS.

Available to serve as a mentor for Accredited Speaker Program applicants? Yes.
