To help individual Rotary club members achieve their personal and professional goals, Rotary International aligned with Toastmasters International to provide opportunities to improve their communication, public speaking, and leadership skills while increasing their impact within the community.
This alliance with Toastmasters differs from Rotary International's relationships with other organizations: It enhances your membership experience through professional development opportunities and connections beyond local clubs for both organizations.
Sharpen your communication and leadership skills through the Rotary and Toastmasters Alliance
Many individuals who joined Rotary were afraid to speak in public. Rotary develops confidence and skill in public communication and the opportunity to practice and perfect these skills. The Rotary and Toastmasters alliance is an excellent way for Rotarians to learn and develop enhanced speaking skills. As professionals, communication is our gateway to reaching customers and clients and promoting our service projects.
Toastmasters provided Rotary eight interactive web-based learning modules for Rotary members:
The courses are self-paced and can be taken on a laptop, personal computer, or iPad. Companies can use the web-based professional development training Rotary provides for employee development. Course completion certificates are provided upon completion of each course.
The Rotary Club of Owasso connects with the Keystone Toastmasters Club to provide additional speaking opportunities for Rotary members to complete their public speaking, communication, leadership, networking, and evaluation learning modules.
