Asfar’s Digital Coffee & Talks social action project is always keen to connect with new Speakers.

We welcome Speakers with expertise in different subjects including those who wish to deliver online training: Digital Talks do not have to be lecture style activities.

Digital Coffee & Talks invite potential Speakers to contact us at with subject ideas and we will arrange a skype call to discuss the subject with you directly.

All of our Speakers are volunteers, who wish to share information on key subjects to our network of young people throughout the world.

Although no payment will be offered for a Digital Talk, it should be noted that many of our Speakers go on to be involved in some of our wider programmes that do offer speaker/facilitator remuneration.
