Speaker Connect - Host Organisation Application

We are looking for Speakers and Host Organisations for our Speaker Connect Program.

Purpose of the program: 

Our Speaker Connect program aims to match successful host organisations with emerging and established speakers. Our current Speaker Connect program can be held both in-person as well as online (depending on Host facilities) to enable Speakers and Hosts to attract a wide audience.  You will need to be familiar with how to stage an online meeting (via Zoom or similar).  Alternatively, contact us for a discussion about how we might be able to assist you technically.

What Host Organisations recieve from us:

We will provide a History Speaker after consulting with you about the topic, flyers and publicity to support and  promote the event in conjunction with you.  The HCNSW will cover the cost of the Speaker's fee & provide a travel stipend.

In return, host organisations will conduct their own event promotion, building on promotions mounted by the HCNSW and acknowledge the HCNSW in all  event promotions and promotional material.

Hosts will be selected against the following criteria:

Audience and and purpose - how would the program benefit your organisation?


- ability to stage an online meeting/presentation via Zoom or similar online meeting technology

-  previous experience in promoting and hosting events locally will be taken into consideration.

- willingness to provide the session free of charge to an audience (due to HCNSW paying the expenses of the Speaker).

-  willingness to acknowledge the HCNSW in all event promotions and material
