Masterclasses in Communication and Leadership

What is a Masterclass?

A Masterclass is an online webinar led by a member of District 57 Toastmasters to teach our members tips, tricks, best practices and more to improve your self-confidence, communication and leadership skills. 

How can I learn more or sign up to teach a Masterclass?

Our community is incredibly talented and knowledgeable. This is an opportunity for our members to share this with others. Instructions to learn more about the Masterclass program and sign up to speak will follow soon.
