Call for speakers through BCS Dorset

One of my volunteer interests is in supporting the BCS activities in Dorset.

I am currently overhauling the operation of the Branch to achieve maximum traction and progress and welcome new contacts, ideas and collaborations. I am also keen to organise online web conferences remotely on the same lines.

Are you an IT professional interested in giving a talk to our membership? Please get in touch if you’d be interested in giving an evening presentation in Bournemouth (email groups@bcs.org.uk FAO BCS Dorset Chair). The Branch can cover all reasonable costs for travel and subsistence from anywhere in the UK.

Our most successful work, historically, has been organising events such as evening lectures, talks and demonstrations. I’m particularly keen to get speakers to our events that are not only from Dorset, but across the UK and beyond.
