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 local area but can take engagements further afield if you wish
Timewise, the role will be restricted for the dates and times the group is looking for so could be daytime, evening or weekends. Many groups have flexibility however 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.
You should have a friendly and welcoming personality as you will be the face of TWAM to members of the Public. . 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.
We provide an induction to the role which may be either over the phone, electronically or in person and a volunteer handbook on starting. You will have a named contact within TWAM for any questions or problems and further training can be provided as required. You will also be given a TWAM Polo Shirt wear and an ID Card if required.
A Speaker pack will be provided which includes presentations on a memory stick, written narrative for presentations, Pictures and Posters and examples of our publicity material
From the role, you will gain a warm satisfaction at the difference you are making to people’s lives. You will also have opportunities if you wish to learn new skills. We will provide a reference if required for a future employer or other organisation
