Philately is a generic term having many facets and that is reflected in the range of subjects our local speakers give presentations on.​

Here is a list of those in the Surrey area will are able and willing to come along a give a talk to your local society and their area of expertise.

​If you should wish to book any of them please email Chris Forwood at forwoodc@aol.com saying who you would like to book with some dates and he will pass your details on. Also if you wish to give some displays and be included on this list, again email Chris and your name and subjects will be added.

​Some speakers are naturally good but most of us need to keep in mind some dos and don'ts - especially the one which says if you are looking at your stamps the audience can't hear you. A few elementary improvements can make a moderate presentation into a very good one. There are some notes for speakers here: http://www.surreyphilately.org.uk/notes-for-speakers
