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.

Yorkshire Speakers features a Bookshop, which is designed for low volume publications, the sort of thing that historical societies produce. It is no competitor to Amazon! but I thought it would be useful for speakers as another route to the public. For those who are new to publishing it is now extremely easy to self publish through websites like http://www.lulu.com

The idea for this “Blog/Forum” was suggested by Tony Morris a recent recruit to the Yorkshire Speakers Directory website. He said…”I wonder if you could add a forum to the Yorkshire Speakers Directory site so people could discuss the issues we’ve been writing about and share their experiences.”

The issues were all the usual suspects, no need to mention them here, what would be better is if other users started to set out their own views and then we can see if this site can be of real benefit?

To improve the service offered by the Yorkshire Speakers Directory I have set up a “Blog” to allow people to communicate and offer comments and advice!
