Learn more about Beekeeping in Developing Countries

Why not invite a speaker to a regular meeting or larger event? Many of our project managers, trustees and other volunteers are available to present a talk at your beekeeping association. We also speak at WI, Rotary Club, Soroptomist, college and senior school events and meetings. Some are also experienced presenters at larger county or national events and conferences. Either send us an email or contact the individual below who most meets your needs.

As a guideline, we don’t charge a fee, but most organisations give a donation of around £60 plus they often organise a raffle or allow us to sell gift cards and cards or take a collection. Expenses to cover the cost of travel would be appreciated too.
