Calling all potential guest speakers

28 August 2017  Coordinator Connect

MHPN is developing a Guest Speaker Register to help connect networks with presenters.

If you or someone you know would like to present at a network meeting, let us know by providing your details on the Guest Speaker Register Form.

Initially, the Register will be used to help project officers work with network coordinators to source speakers with particular fields of expertise. 

Presenting at a network meeting

Guest speakers can present in person, or where technology allows via skype or video conferencing.

If would like to register to present at another network’s meeting, please provide your details on the Guest Speaker Registration Form.

If you know someone who would be interested in being a guest speaker, please forward them this news article and recommend they think about volunteering to speak at network meetings.

Completing the Guest Speaker Registration Form will take about 5 - 10 minutes. You'll be asked to provide information like:

  • name
  • profession
  • contact details
  • topics on which you can present
  • how far you are willing to travel to present at a meeting.

 What happens after I provide my details?

  1. Your details will be added to MHPN's Guest Speaker Register.
  2. MHPN project officers will liaise with network coordinators to determine what speakers are available in their area.
  3. If your presentation subject is of interest, the coordinator will either get in touch with you directly or via MHPN to make the necessary arrangements.

It is important to know that you can ask that the initial contact with the network goes through MHPN, with your contact details only provided to the network's coordinator with your express permission.

Email MHPN or call 1800 209 031 for more information.
