You can also be a mentor to help a new club during its first six months after chartering. See Setting up a new club for more about these roles.
The High Performance Leadership Programme
The High Performance Leadership Programme is also a great way to develop your skills in setting vision, planning and getting a team involved, right the way through to completion. More information is available on the advanced leadership page on www.toastmasters.org. You can also find out more here in this HPL Flier.
Projects that members have completed include projects within Toastmasters and outside. Many people relish the chance to use their growing skills at work, for a charity they are involved with in their spare time, or in another area of their lives.
Recent examples include revitalising a local football club, organising a Toastmasters event, using HPL to increase personal performance on a project at work, raising funds for a local school. It’s a flexible programme that will enhance your leadership skills whatever the project you choose to work on.
