“The Power of the People Around You” — Community Speaking Tour

The world has done it tough over the last few years – especially people in local community groups, but I (Barnaby Howarth) am on a community speaking tour until June 2023 telling those groups that by sharing these experiences together is making them stronger. 

The tour kicked off with a speech to the Pennant Hills Demons Division 3 AFL team, where I spoke to the players before their game about how the seeds of small goodness they put into the football club will give them the strength they need if they doubt themselves on the field. 

For the local community group, the “Power of the People Around You“ tour will reassure them that all of the strength and resilience they need to overcome any challenge they face is inside them right now. For the community group, the speech will be free when donated by a supportive business.  

For businesses, donating a speech to a community group gives them the chance to give back to the world without having to use up any precious staff or resources – I will organise the entire speaking event directly with the community group. This is a chance to add value to the communities your business lives and works in after a couple of years of being in struggle city. 

The business won’t be engaging as a direct sponsor of the community group, so no work needs to be done in aligning messaging and weighing up if it is the right fit.  

A number of community groups have already expressed interest in having me speak for them, so if you represent a business and would like to get involved, those community groups are listed below…  

For more details, see the promotion attached, then if you are keen, half keen or would just like more information, give me a call on 0404 851 203 or send me an email at barnaby@barnabyhowarth.com.au.
