Corporate Recognition Award

Corporate Recognition Awards

Corporations from around the world have formed symbiotic relationships with Toastmasters. By sponsoring a club at their workplace, companies are allowing the Toastmasters program to help improve employees’ leadership, communication, and public speaking skills. By dedicating time and resources to supporting an in-house Toastmasters club, corporations provide further learning and growth opportunities at an affordable cost, setting themselves up for long-term success and maximizing their talent.

The Corporate Recognition Award is designated for our most distinguished corporate sponsors making an investment in the future of their employees and their organizations. Toastmasters’ Board of Directors and District leadership come together once a year to honor and recognize a select number of Toastmasters Corporate Sponsors for their commitment to the Toastmasters program.

Toastmasters corporate sponsors are recognized for providing support in one or more of the following ways:

  • Membership dues
  • New member fee
  • Charter fee
  • Meeting location
  • Promoting Toastmasters membership to all employees
  • Supporting Toastmasters events outside of club activities (District conference/events/training)

The Corporate Recognition Award is available only for Districts that have been scheduled for an International Officer or International Director visit. Once your District visit has been scheduled, please complete the nomination form listed in the resources below.
