Speech requests are meant for us to help to find clubs who welcome speakers from other clubs and have a speaking slot they can help you with, or for clubs who just want fresh faces now and again to stay connected with the wider Toastmasters community.
If you would like to deliver a speech at another club, let us know more about it and we will feature you here.
