Many of our bureau members offer fee-based presentations, workshops, and seminars as part of their businesses. If you wish, you may engage a speaker beyond their initial, free speaking engagement. For this purpose we have provided links in their profiles to their personal or company web sites. You may work further with a speaker at your discretion with the understanding that if you hire a speaker through their business, you will not introduce or acknowledged them as a “representative” of Toastmasters. In these instances, all coordination, liabilities, and responsibilities are between you and the speaker.
