Speaker Connect 2020 – now Online!
Did you know that we have now moved our Speaker Connect program online? That means that our Speakers can make presentations from the comfort and safety of their own homes, and Hosts can still host their sessions via electronic means (eg Zoom) and reach a wide audience.
It’s a great opportunity for our Members to undertake a paid speaking engagement, and for Host Member organisations to receive a speaker from the HCNSW at no cost to you.
Visit our Speaker Connect page to find out more about the program and how to apply to be a Speaker or Host (Members only).
