Are you the voice of men and boys in the UK? Do you have what it takes to be chosen as a keynote speaker at the Second National Conference For Men And Boys?
We’ve already got a great range of speakers lined up for this year’s conference on Friday November 2nd and we’d also love to hear from you if you have a suggestion for someone you’d love to speak at the conference – or if you’d like to put yourself forward as a speaker this year.
We’d hate to miss out on having a really great speaker at the conference simly because we hadn’t heard of them or thought to ask them
The theme of the Second National Conference for Men and Boys is “Building The Sector Together” and so we are looking to our speakers to inspire and motivate delegates to take actions that will help us build a dynamic sector working with men and boys in the UK.
The delegates are generally a mix of public and charity sector professionals, some service users and a range of freelancers working with men and boys so speakers need to relevant and of interest to this audience.
There are four different speaking opportunities and each require a slightly different approach.
The Activists Soapbox is an opportunity to ‘get on your soapbox’ and let rip about an issue you are most passionate about.
The Sector Showcases are hour-long sessions that will involve several speakers giving a short overview of an aspect of their work and an opportunity to be involved in Q&A and discussion. There are six showcase themes – fatherhood, health, mental health, violence and abuse, sexual health and developing men and boys.
The Best Practice Showcases are an opportunity to deliver a short solo presentation about your work. There will be no Q&A during these session, we do however invite and encourage speakers to make themselves available for Q&As from delegates throughout the day.
The Top Ten Thinkers section involves speakers who can be relevant to the entire conference and will challenge delegates thinking and/or leave delegates inspired to take action.
If you think you meet some or all of these criteria, or would like to recommend someone who does, then do please get in touch.
We can’t guarantee that everyone who wants to speak will be given a speaking slot but we if you meet the criteria we will do everything we can to accommodate you.
