Information for Speaker-finders and Bookings-secretaries

Public Speaker in Hampshire Dianne Mannering

The Public Speakers Corner website is FREE for you to use

I am Dianne Mannering and I created this website so that Speaker-finders, Bookings-secretaries and Programme-secretaries with modest budgets can find Public Speakers without having to pay a fee for the service.

A few pointers……..

Each speaker has a page. The top of the page denotes the home location of the speaker so that you can quickly ascertain that they are within a reasonable range of your venue.
The Speaker Profile gives brief details of the speaker and states the counties that he/she is prepared to travel to. All speakers give an indication of their fee and travelling expenses, so, by the time you scroll down to look at their talks you know that the speaker falls within your club’s financial criteria and that your venue is within their travel limit.

There are six search options shown in the purple navigation bar along the top of the pages:-
Browse by County – select your own county, any speaker appearing in that section is prepared to travel into your county. The speaker’s own home town is given underneath their name.
Browse by Theme – the list of themes continues to expand. I recently included Science.  ‘General Interest’  includes talks that don’t fit neatly into any of the categories. Again the speaker’s home town is given underneath their name.
New Talks – Here you’ll find speakers new to the website and also, it is a showcase for our existing speakers to let you know about their latest talk.


Stand Alone Speaker – This is someone who does not necessarily need a projector to illustrate their talks. Often though a speaker who gives illustrated talks will advertise as a Stand Alone speaker to let you know that they are able to speak without using a projector when this is required.


I would be very grateful if you would let me know if you find an out of service phone number or an email address that pings back as speakers sometimes forget to let me know when they change their contact details.  My email address is at the bottom of every page.


If you are looking for a talk on a specific subject email me with the details and the approximate fee your club is prepared to pay and I will enter your requirements in the Speakers section ‘Opportunities to give your talk’  this facility is free for you and the speaker to use.
