How much will speakers be paid for talks?

Speakers will be paid £75 for every booking and each booking will be a live Zoom talk followed by a Q&A, unless otherwise specified.

How long should talks be?

Talks should be around 50 minutes long to allow time for a 10 minute Q&A, keeping the event within the hour.

What’s happening with pre-recorded talks?

We will continue to use the pre-recorded talks for our Free Thursday events. These events won’t have a Q&A and you won’t need to be available at the time of the viewing - which is good considering some are at 4am for our NZ audiences!

We will also use pre-recorded talks for our McCarthy Stone and NHRSF audiences. These events will have a live Q&A following the screening of your talk.

Speakers will be paid £75 for these events.

How do I add a new talk to the website?

If you have already given a talk with Mirthy and are a confirmed Mirthy speaker, you simply need to send Abbie a title and c. 100-word description ([email protected]) of the talk you want to add to the catalogue. I will be in touch with any questions and we can schedule a Zoom call if needed.

How are club bookings now working?

Clubs can continue to book speakers through our website. Speakers will receive £75 for each club booking. These bookings will be live on Zoom, followed by a Q&A session.

How do I give a talk on Zoom?

Most speakers will present their talk accompanied by a PowerPoint presentation. On Zoom, you can share your screen so that the audience will be able to see both your video and your slides.

There will be a training session on Monday 28th June 3 - 4:30 pm . For an invitation to this event, please email [email protected]

What makes a speaker a ‘Mirthy speaker’?

Mirthy speakers are the highest quality speakers. They are confident and comfortable in front of a camera, highly knowledgeable on their chosen topics, and warm yet informative public speakers. Within our community of public speakers, there are performers, tour guides, presenters and toastmasters providing a huge variety of styles of presentation.

If you are interested in becoming a Mirthy speaker, please send an email to [email protected] detailing the talks you offer (titles and c.100 word descriptions).
