About Your Speaking Opportunity
Please provide as much notice as possible (3 weeks minimum) when making a Shout Out speaker request. This time is needed to organise a speaker as well as provide sufficient time for speech writing and preparation.
Please give us an overview of the type of event you are hosting and any further details you wish to express.
Please provide building name if applicable and street address.
Eg. key note speech, presentation, panel discussion, casual talk
Please note: We cannot guarantee your preferred speaker will be available on your event date. If you wish to have another speaker at your event, you can select your second speaker preference as an option below. If you select no preference we will provide you with a speaker tailored to your event details and topics of discussion.
If you wish to choose more than two speakers please let us know who you would like to speak at your event.
Please note: Our speakers will speak on these topics from their own perspective and/or experience
In order to find best speaker/s for your event we need to know about your audience.
Eg. school students, age/level, service providers, corporate/business, community group/club, general public, government sector etc
Speaker Safety and Comfort
The safety of our speakers is paramount. Some of the issues they talk about can be sensitive and can result in challenging behaviour or confronting questions from audience members.
Some of our speakers have accessibility requirements/considerations such as requiring wheelchair accessibility, gender neutral toilets and/or sensory sensitivities. We want to make sure our speakers' needs are considered in the booking, to ensure comfort and safety.
Select other if you have anything to add.
The aim of Shout Out is to promote the views and perspectives of multicultural young people as worthwhile and valuable to public discussions. As such, we suggest a minimum of $100 payment for the Shout Out speaker to recognise the value they bring to your event as well as cover costs associated with transport and the development of their presentation.
If you do not have a large budget, please consider a gift or certificate of appreciation. The speaker fee can be negotiated with the speaker once they are confirmed.
Please keep in mind a booking fee of 10% will be charged based on the reimbursement costs as well as 10% GST.
Once you submit your request, you should receive an automated email confirming your request. MYAN WA will endeavour to make a speaker for your event. We may contact you for further information or clarification if needed.
Please note , our staff work part time and need to liaise with a number of young people prior to confirming your booking. However if you do not hear from MYAN WA with a week of making your request please contact us on 9227 5440.
Once a speaker has been confirmed, you'll receive an email that connects you with the speaker and provides their contact details. It will also ask you to outline;
- Transport and parking options
- How to access the venue
- Who will be the contact person on the date and their contact number
- Technical equipment including audio visual
From here, you'll be able to liaise directly with the speaker regarding any changes to or cancellation of your event.
If your event is cancelled for any reason, please advise both the speaker and MYAN WA with as much notice as possible
If a booked speaker needs to cancel, they will inform you as soon as possible and MYAN WA will aim to find a replacement.
