“The strategic alliance with Rotary is exciting and allows for both organizations to leverage our unique and similar strengths,” said Deepak Menon president of Toastmasters International. “We look forward to providing our current and prospective members with on going additional offerings that meet their evolving needs.

The ongoing relationship between the two organizations will begin at the grassroots level with local club members learning and working together, said Rotary International. The joint project will give the opportunity for Toastmasters to take their leadership skills and apply them outside of the club environment which will make more of a community impact. As an organization, Toastmasters will be opened to potential new markets and members.
