1. Halesowen O5O Club - West Midlands
Halesowen College O5Os Club is putting together next year’s Speaker Program. The talks are given on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday morning with a six day stint when you present your talk at 11 o clock each morning to six different groups of 050s members – average group 40 people. The venue is Halesowen in the West Midlands B62. You need to be fairly local if you are interesting in putting yourself forward for the morning talks because you have to be there in time to start at 11 o clock. The talk duration is approximately one hour.
I gave my talks there for several years when I was living in the West Midlands – it is a modern building within the College grounds and all you need to take along is your memory stick with your talks on it, they have superb inhouse equipment for your use.
The pay is negotiable, depending on the subject matter and should include any travel expenses.
If you would be interested in presenting your talks at the Halesowen College 050s Club, please email the Community and 050s Co-Ordinatdor, Jill Hughes and direct her to your page on my website: firstname.lastname@example.org
Jill is also available 8.30 to 5pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays Tel: 0121 602 7769
You don’t have to be on my website to contact Jill about your talks, she is very keen to put together an interesting and varied program for the members of the Halesowen 050 Clubs – so if you think you fit the bill then send her an email.
2. Do you have a talk about The Gunpowder Plot or Climate Change/recycling?
I am Ann Richards the Speaker Seeker for Ilkeston U3A.
I have used this website to source local speakers on several occasions and Ilkeston U3A members have received some very enjoyable talks.
I am now preparing our programme for next year and I am looking for a couple of very specific topics to include in 2019 – they are:-
- in November – something about the Gunpower Plot (our monthly meeting is on 5 November 2019)
- at some point during the year – something about climate change or reducing/recycling waste
Ilkeston is in Derbyshire- but actually on the Notts/Derby border – very close to the M1 junctions 25 or 26
We would normally expect a speaker to talk for about 45 minutes – bring their own equipment (lap top, projector) and we expect to pay in the region of £80 including travel expenses (but could go a little higher for the right person if it involves a bit more travelling)
Please email me if you have a subject that would fit the bill:- email@example.com
3. Do you have a Christmas Talk?
I am the treasurer for Woodford W.I in Cheshire and I am looking for a speaker/entertainer with a Christmas theme for our Christmas party/meal at the Deanwater Hotel in Woodford on 5th December in the evening.
We would need someone fairly local who is humorous and entertaining for about an hour and who is preferably a standalone speaker.
We are prepared to pay around £150+
Please email me if you feel you can offer a suitable program – firstname.lastname@example.org
Susan Hyslop – treasurer

Does anyone want some free audio equipment?
I have some audio equipment that I no longer use. There’s a speaker (small and very portable) complete with hand held mic. There’s also some wireless amplification stuff that I bought three years ago and never got round to using – the technology defeated me, it all looked very simple when the fellow in Maplins showed me how to use it, but my technological abilities failed entirely when I tried to set it up at a talk venue. So, if any speaker living anywhere near Alton in Hampshire wants to come and collect this stuff, I’ll be happy for them to make use of it. Email me for more info or to arrange to collect.
