Want to be a Shropshire WI Speaker?

Application forms for inclusion on our Speakers' lists can be downloaded from this page.

As a County Federation of WIs, we have many approaches from people asking to speak to our members.  Many of the applications are from speakers on the same subject and our WIs want to be sure the speaker they are booking will please their members, especially as speakers’ fees are a major expenditure for our WIs.

We have found the most efficient of processing these applications is to hold auditions.  We hold auditions at least annually and sometimes, more often.  From the completed application forms we receive, we select those to go to the next round of auditions attended by approximately 100 WI programme secretaries and those which gain approval will then be included on our list of approved speakers.

Each of the audition slots is 10 minutes and timings are strictly adhered to.

We look forward to hearing from you.
