Speaker Guidelines

We offer an opportunity for speakers to come to WMB networking meetings to talk about an area of business inspiration or business/personal development, and provide our members with one or several of the following:

  • Practical Information that will help their business in terms of organisation or growth
  • Self development - Personal & Professional 
  • Motivation 
  • New inspiring ideas (products or services) that would be useful for business
  • Leadership Skills
  • Sales & Marketing ideas
  • Financial help 
  • An opportunity for members to meet other inspiring business people with a story to tell
Our members are looking for practical and tangible help and advice which they can immediately put into place and will make a difference to what they might already be doing.

As a WMB speaker,  you will be asked to email us a ‘catchy title’ and a couple of sentences outlining the talk, at least 4 weeks prior to the scheduled talk.  We also ask our speakers to submit a blog about the subject of the talk for our website, and to use to help market and promote the meeting.
Please confirm any special dietary requirements, and also what equipment you might need such as flip chart, projector etc.    
The time allowed for the talk is 20 minutes to include questions and answers.  It’s not long, and we appreciate it if you can keep to the timings as we have a very tight schedule for the meeting. 

Arrive at the venue for 11.50am latest, before members and guests get there. This gives us a chance to meet you and help you to set up, and go through any questions which you may have. The networking commences at 12.00 noon and finishes at 2pm. 

Your talk will be towards the end of the meeting, after everyone has enjoyed the 2 course lunch.  

We are happy for you to promote your business, mention a special offer, products, or latest book, at the very end of your talk.  And then, please respect that our members are not expecting to be sold to, so this needs to be a soft promotion and NOT a hard sell.  

CHARGES:  We ask our speakers to pay for their lunch, the same price we charge a visitor, which is £28 per meeting, and is payable in advance. WMB members are charged at a reduced rate of £15
