Speaker Connect

Our popular Speaker Connect program aims to connect emerging and established history professionals with community and local government organisations across New South Wales.

The program takes place throughout the year as well as during History Week.

Whether an exciting and thought provoking talk about Australian history, or a professional development workshop geared toward the practice of history, our Speaker Connect program will give both organisations and individuals the chance to further their professional skills and raise the profile of history.

The speaker was superb and the audience was very involved. Everything is made so easy for organisers and if I had any enquiries I received excellent support.

Speaker Connect was a really enjoyable experience. I loved meeting members of the local community and learning more about how they engage with history.

Speaker Connect 2017

It’s a great initiative that provides an easy way for historians to get their work heard outside the usual circles. Everything was really well organised.

Outstanding…a fabulous program to connect venues and speakers. It allows us to host speakers we would not ordinarily be able to host.
