Become a speaker

We’re looking for new speakers throughout the UK. You don’t need any previous public speaking experience, just a passion for Farm Africa and our work.

By giving up your time, you’ll help us to change lives in Africa, and support others in their efforts to raise funds.

We’ll provide comprehensive training and resources to assist with your talks. In return, you’ll give around six talks a year to engaged and interested audiences.

What’s important is that you:

  • have enthusiasm for our work
  • want to motivate others to get involved
  • want to develop the skills needed to deliver inspiring talks.

What will I be doing?

As a volunteer speaker, you’ll talk to a variety of groups within your community, educating audiences about the issues facing rural Africa and inspiring them to get involved with Farm Africa’s work.

We’ll support you with:

  • a one-day training course when you first start
  • ongoing briefings
  • updates on the latest Farm Africa developments
  • support and advice from the fundraising team - we’re on hand to help.

Becoming a speaker lets you:

  • develop your public speaking skills and confidence
  • gain training and experience
  • meet new people in your community
  • learn more about international development and Farm Africa’s work.

If you’re excited at the idea of being part of our family of speakers please fill in this short form. We are constantly updating our speaker training days schedule and hope to see you at one of them.

Please note that the speaker network currently operates in the UK only and unfortunately we are unable to reimburse travel costs for international supporters to attend training days. 


Alternatively please get in touch at or call us on 020 7430 0440.
