District 71 Toastmasters International

The Marketors Outreach programme has completed an Outreach marketing support project for District 71 Toastmasters which empowers individuals to become more effective communicators and leaders.

For nearly 100 years Toastmasters International has helped millions of people become more confident communicators, public speakers and leaders. Club meetings are at the heart of how members achieve effective communication and leadership skills. While each club has its own character, there are some things that are consistent, no matter where in the world.

District 71 Toastmasters is a strong, proud district constituted in 1972. It spans across Ireland, Scotland, Northern Wales, Northern England, Midlands, and East of England. Currently the District is made up of over 200 clubs and 4,500 Toastmaster members with a website at https://d71toastmasters.org/

In addition to District 71’s supportive Club environment, there is a structured education programme called Pathways. It is based on the more people get involved in the education programme, the more they develop their communications and leadership skills and confidence. The club meetings are designed to draw on all elements of the education programme, prepared speeches, table topics, evaluations as well as functionary roles such as timekeeping and tracking great use of language.

The Outreach marketing support project was managed by Liveryman Peter Rees who also provided Outreach committee support.

The Worshipful Company of Marketors’ Outreach Programme matches “good cause” organisations needing “pro bono” marketing support with one or more appropriate members of the Marketors, from Freemen to Past Masters. Outreach’s professional management approach helps document, define and time limit the marketing support, delivers our members’ marketing expertise and helps the “good cause” organisation to make their own improvements.

Many members of the Marketors based across the UK and overseas say they want to donate some personal time and marketing skills to help deliver some charitable marketing back into society. The Outreach programme enables that activity and records the Outreach activities of individual members. If you would like to help a good cause, regardless of where it is in the UK or overseas, please contact outreach@marketors.org
