Area 56 Director - Mike McNeil ACB, ALB


Area 56 is comprised of four unique and engaging clubs within the Burlington/Waterdown area. First Burlington Toastmasters, Skyway Toastmasters, Mansion Toastmasters, First Waterdown and Burlington Advanced. If you are are interested in improving your communication skills, perhaps your leadership skills or maybe both. Either way, Toastmasters can help you!.

Toastmasters can help you achieve your goals in the timeframe of your choice. Some people join to improve communication, become a stronger presenter, improve their English, become a better leader, meet new people, and more- what is your reason?
