Tips from your DTM Mentor
1) Please read the important FAQ before proceeding with planning your DTM journey.
https://www.toastmasters.org/Footer/FAQ/Education%20Program

2) An effective way to make progress on your education is to proactively look for the opportunities to speak. Following are some options.
- Teaching at Toastmasters Leadership Institute (TLI).
- Keynote speeches at TLI.
- Inspiration at contests (1-2 minute).
- Being a contest master for a club/area/division/district contest.
- Being a contestant at a contest.
- As a district leader whenever you visit clubs and share information, make sure to get your speeches evaluated towards relevant education manuals.

3) Beyond education - Toastmasters is an excellent way to grow as a human being. Beyond education, Toastmasters provides outstanding opportunities to connect with others. The best way to connect with others is to participate/help with Club Demo meetings, TLIs, Contests(participate, judge), Conferences, as well as International Conventions.

4) We encourage you to use the Toastmasters International Helpline. +1 949-858-8255 6 a.m.–7 p.m. Pacific Time, Monday–Friday, excluding U.S. holidays. This is an excellent resource for our organization.
