Northeast Speakers LogoThe District 53 Speakers Bureau—covering Montgomery to Glens Falls, NY, the Berkshires to the Pioneer Valley, MA and all of CT, was created in January of 2017.

We support the community areas in which we live and work by providing outstanding speakers for local businesses, associations and organizations. At the same time, our members get the opportunity to showcase the presentation skills they’ve developed through their Toastmasters training.

Speakers Bureau members are business professionals, parents, educators, community organizers, writers, trainers, coaches ,entertainers, community advocates and more, from all different professions and all walks of life.

In addition to their diverse personal and professional backgrounds, all Speakers Bureau presenters are currently members in good standing of Toastmasters International. They’ve met requirements of communication training, and many have earned advanced awards, held officer positions, and competed in speech contests against some of the best speakers in the world.???

Whether it’s a 10-minute presentation, a keynote speech or a full-day seminar, our speakers will add a compelling element to your gathering without subtracting from your budget.

AudienceSpeaking engagements arranged through the District 53 Toastmasters Speakers Bureau are a complimentary community service. Some Speakers Bureau members may be available for future appearances on a for-fee basis.

The Bureau does not schedule, negotiate, or collect fees for any paid appearances.

Speakers will be asked to fill out a brief evaluation of their speaking engagement with your company or organization after their engagement has ended. Your organization will also be asked to fill out a brief evaluation of the speaker to help us ensure and maintain the high standards of our speakers bureau.

The Speakers Bureau is here to work with you and to make sure your next event is a success.

Whether it is a lecture, keynote address, business meeting, presentation, or even an office party, let the District 53 Toastmasters Speakers Bureau help you find a dynamic speaker for your upcoming events.
