Practical Action talks
We can find a speaker to talk to your group, online or in person. It’s a great way of sharing our work with your club, church, or group.
In recent weeks we’ve been asked to talk to student groups, walking clubs, churches, rotary clubs, and humanitarian societies. Luckily, we have some amazing supporters who are willing and able to tell people about Practical Action’s work, including how we are helping overseas communities respond to Covid 19.
We’ve had very positive comments, including Rajesh Shah from the Desi Ramblers, pictured hiking in Wales. The Desi Ramblers can’t go walking during lockdown so are meeting on Zoom instead, and asked for a speaker to address their group for half an hour. Rajesh was full of praise for volunteer speaker Rachel Berger’s presentation and said, ‘We really liked the insight she gave.’
To request a talk for your group, or to find out more about becoming a presenter, contact Holly.
We have a bank of presentations and scripts to help you talk to groups, and we always consult with you on where and when you want to present.
We are so grateful to our speakers, for spreading the word to new audiences. They have a direct impact on our work, by raising funds and awareness of what we do.
Please contact us for more information on how to join our speakers group.
