As you can tell from the speakers page, we are coming up a tad short on speakers – that can’t be right, everyone has something to say! Come on, give it some thought: what would you like a slot to chat about? A few ideas include:
- Talk about a local group you’re involved with – yes, you can give a talk in addition to having a table! You’re going to be making a pitch to people coming by your table anyways, so why not take advantage of being able to tell them that they can hear more at a certain time in the speaker’s area?
- Talk about an interesting topic – If you think it’s interesting, no doubt other people will, too.
- Talk about a cause or campaign – Are you helping to support a movement to change something or fix something or fighting to keep something? There’s a zillion and one causes out there; come, tell us yours and what we can do to help!
- Talk about something inspiring – Inspire us! Have a look again at the festival aims; perhaps you and a few friends could come together and give a talk about ideas to increase audience members’ greenness (of course that’s a word, I just used it!) or sustainability? Perhaps you’d like to inspire us to be more positive and compassionate? You could tell us some practical methods to accomplish that, and perhaps illustrate it with anecdotes of how small acts of kindness have made real differences to the recipients. Those are just a couple of ideas off the top of my head – the sky’s the limit!
That’s just to get you started thinking – there’s such a bewildering array of choices to think about, once you get going! Go on, put the ol’ thinking cap on! Please get in touch by email at WhatsOnNorthwest@hotmail.co.uk once you’re inspired to share your message!
