Suggestions of 256GUEST SPEAKERS16 April 2015 The Guest Speakers List is prepared, with the permission of the speakers, for the use of Probus Clubs only.The speakers list is continually updated and available, via E-mail, on request from Patricia Owens.Thanks to those Probians whose feedback has enabled updated changes to be made to the list.Please send any new information to:Patricia OwensTel. 9332 8569 E-mail: patricia.owens@westnet.com.au Proudly Sponsored by Free Call 1800 066 272 email: travel@villa.com.auPlease Note: This list is solely for the use of Western AustralianProbus Clubs affiliated with the Probus Association of W.A.Please destroy old copies appropriately1mailto:travel@villa.com.auGuest Speaker Officers Role.Arranging interesting speakers programs is one of the most important and challenging assignments in a Probus Club. To hold the interest of members, programs must be well balanced with informative and thought-provoking subjects presented by accomplished speakers. Some highly qualified people are uninteresting speakers; so it is a good idea, if possible, to check on a person's "track record" before extending an invitation to speak at your club. Club members should be regularly invited to suggest potential speakers. In addition; Look ahead six months and plan a varied program of potential Speakers taking into account the interests of your Club members. Discuss future speakers at Management Meetings and arrange for publication of speaker details in the Clubs Newsletter Approach potential speakers at least three months before the meeting at which the person is invited to speak. If necessary, explain the objectives of Probus. Ask Speaker for the title of the talk and biographical notes (for the information of the Newsletter editor and the members chosen to introduce the speaker, Follow up with a letter confirming the arrangements, setting out details of location, time (suggest arrival in time to have tea coffee with members), length of address (around 45 minutes plus question time), transport arrangement, and your contact telephone number. Follow up with reminder telephone call about five days before the meeting, checking on any special arrangements, equipment required (blackboard, screen, video) and confirm any transport arrangements. Provide a mobile phone number for emergency contact. Greet speaker on arrival; offer refreshments, introduce to President, committee and member who will be introducing the said speaker. Arrange for a member, preferably one with some understanding of or interest in the subject to thank the speaker and present a small gift*as a memento of the visit. It is very important that the persons introducing and thanking be brief with their remarks and dont become an extra guest speakers! Try to have a short list of emergency speakers who can fill in with an interesting talk at short notice. It is most probable that there are excellent speakers in your own club who, if asked, will have a program prepared; but make sure you have more than one reserve speaker. Many clubs have a Member talk at each meeting; for 10 minutes before the morning tea break about their professional or business career: or some special interest. Such talks are almost always very interesting and help to promote friendship within the club. Small gift many clubs give a bottle or two of reasonable quality branded wine.
