Volunteer Speaker (CSVA)
The role of the TWAM speaker is to talk to groups in your local community leaving them with the challenge to support TWAM through tool collections, financial provision or by volunteering.
The groups you speak to will be diverse in nature and could include churches, schools, Rotary Clubs and many others.
You will be speaking in your general geographical area but how far you go is up to you as you are free to accept or decline talk requests as you wish.
The role will generally be needed for the dates and times the group is looking for so could be daytime, evening or weekends, although there may be some flexibility and you do not have to accept a speaking engagement.
Typical tasks may include Taking calls and emails from members of the public and arranging talk engagements Preparing a presentation and ensuring you have sufficient supplies of all literature you may need Carrying out the talk leaving groups with the challenge to support TWAM.
Passing on any donations made by the group to Head Office for thank you letters to be prepared If tools have been provided, arrange for the local collector or TWAM van to pick up from you or follow up in a few weeks and arrange pick up if a collection is being made.
What skills do I need?
You need to have a friendly and welcoming personality as you will be the face of TWAM to members of the Public.
You need to be willing to travel a little as at present our speaker coverage does not cover all areas of the UK.
You need to be happy to be out front and to enjoy public speaking being able to deliver a talk or a sermon with passion.
Ideally, you will be familiar with Powerpoint and modern media methods as these will be expected by many groups.
