Toastmasters did more than change my life. It gave me a life. – L. Mallette


Probably the most significant step Linnaea took was to join the worldwide non-profit organization dedicated to effective speaking and leading Toastmasters International. She joined in 1987. Conquering the fear of public speaking not only gave her confidence increased her self-esteem; it made it possible for Linnaea to share her experience with others. It also gave Linnaea the wonderful Toastmastering experience that she delights in sharing with fellow Toastmasters.

The Toastmasters District 52 Traveling Speakers Club Coaching Team

Invite Linnaea to speak at a club open house under the District 52 Traveling Speakers Club Coaching Team.  The program was created to help clubs with membership in the following ways:

  • By providing very skilled and confident presenters speaking on important and useful communication and management topics to provide ‘meat’ for club Open Houses.
  • By providing ‘challenged’ clubs (clubs with membership and attendance difficulties, but not eligible for a club coach) with a speaker on a topic designed to help the club with membership and/or attendance and participation.
  • By providing ‘advanced’ and successful clubs with a communication or leadership speech of extra value.

The club submits a Speaker Request Form  
requesting a Traveling Speaker should be returned filled out, scanned, and emailed to:




Requests must be at least a month (or two meetings) in advance, leaving time for clubs to generate at least 5 confirmed guests; and/or for Traveling Speakers to prepare, customize and rehearse their presentations. Exceptions can be made if clubs already have 5 guests confirmed, AND if the topic is one that does not require extra preparation time.
