The new speaker enquiry system has generated twenty enquiries since going live in August, so I’m pleased with results, worth the extra coding.

Liz Burton from Doncaster, South Yorkshire is the latest to sign up to the Speakers Website, she offers talks in the following areas:

Ancestral/Genetic Memory.

Past Life Recall.

What Really Goes on Inside Your Head.

How to Win Friends and Influence People.

Search under the Topics:  Complementary Therapy or Health

I may speak to her about the last subject… as recent events cause me to question myself!

The old system just sent an email when an enquirer found a speaker they were interested in, so I had no way of knowing how effective the site is. Therefore I decided to change the mechanism so that the enquirer fills in a form which sends an email to the recipient speaker but at the same time it alerts me and deposits the enquiry into a database, along with sending a confirmation to the enquirer. So if anything goes wrong I can ensure that the contact can be resurrected.

Nine new speakers have signed up from the beginning of 2012, the topic areas include, travel, culture, literature, writing, nostalgia, health, history, disaster relief, and humour from a legal point of view.  The new speakers are flagged with a “new” graphic to make selection easier.

Yesterday I did a very successful talk on Parlington Hall to Garforth Probus Group, it was the first outing of my newly crafted version, which included some unique nineteenth century photographs of the old place along with some more recent, as the hall was in a state of serious decay. I will be doing this same talk to Wetherby Wives Ladies Group in early May, so hopefully it will be similarly well received as yesterday’s talk.

Work is underway to produce the 2009-10 printed version of the Yorkshire Speakers Directory series. The publisher Chris Helme, has recently sent out an application form to all listed speakers, if you have not received one and would like to be listed in the print versions, then please contact us.

The price for an entry is £5.00 for the first directory (1 of 3) and £2.50 for each thereafter. So if you wanted an entry in the North, South and West Yorkshire publications, the cost would be £10.00. To purchase a copy of each book is £7.99, less 25% for speakers listed in the respective volume. 

The books are used extensively by Speaker Finders and enable people who are less confident with the Internet to contact a prospective talk giver.
