easy-Speak Testimonial

"After using a spreadsheet for many years, moving to Easy-Speak was not only an enormous time saver, but it also provided so much more information at the click of the mouse. Being a web based tool, easy-Speak makes it easy for others to fill in for the VPE as required. This is the only “complete club management system for TM clubs on the planet”.


  • Saves time - lots of it:
  • create and complete an agenda in less than 15 minutes
  • quickly track member progress and attendance on built in charts
  • schedule speeches and assign roles in a flash
  • Improves members' education - by ensuring an even distribution of assignments
  • Proves to be an amazing system - a must have for every club."

More Testimonials

Do you know, as a PR member I am getting into the power of the blog and it's alternative the discussion board. Having now linked it to our clubs FB group and run the RSS feed through our website, I can get my members to join in the online PR of our club without thinking about it!

Members can elect to fill the role(s) they want on the night. We need to leave a few gaps for visitors that feel confident to take on Ah Counter or Jokester.

I love the history saving feature on when our members completed their speeches and roles. When we need to submit awards, we just need to go to Communication or Leadership Progress of the member. How can that be beaten by any other planning system?

Another wonderful feature is the 'paid to' info. My club offers members the option of paying for a year at a savings of $5. During this dues renewal, any officer can see who has paid and who we need to ask to pay. Love this feature.

I use the Club Charts to monitor the progress of speeches and completion of leadership tasks before assigning the roles and scheduling the speeches. I could not do that efficiently as a VPE without it. I work with the VPM to check that members know how to set their OWN goals in easy-Speak and empower them to take charge of their education pathways.
