About

Love to travel? Enjoy public speaking? Then volunteer as a travel talk speaker!

Travel educators deliver workshops that teach travel skills gained through their personal experiences. This is an excellent way to share your love of travel, hone public speaking skills, and try out innovative marketing techniques to promote your presentation.

Speakers are asked to:

1) Create a title and description for your presentation that describes what will be covered and why people should attend

2) Create a PowerPoint or Prezi presentation to go with a talk that is at least 45 minutes long

3) Deliver the presentation at least two times, once at Hostelling International Seattle (audiences from 10 to 50) and again at the flagship REI in Seattle (audiences have ranged from 40 to over 100)
