  • At least one 20-30 minute presentation for your bureau repertoire. You are encouraged to update your profile later to add up to 3 total speeches.
  • A list of other roles you may be interested in performing: emcee, meeting facilitator, coach, consultant, trainer, keynote speaker, target speaker (for Toastmasters contests)…
  • A Web link to your 20-minute qualifying speech. This must be videotaped before a live audience of your choice.  This can be a speech from your bureau repertoire.
