Looking for a speaker for your group or school?

Looking for someone to speak about Fairtrade  / Traidcraft in Fairtrade Fortnight? Or at any other time?

I am Teresa Goatham, registered with Traidcraft as a speaker but as they have had to put their scheme matching speakers and requests on hold (see this page) I have created this page to help you find me.

I live in Gillingham, Dorset and am happy to travel within a reasonable distance of my home. I have few fixed committments so am available most days of the week or times of day.

Besides schools I am happy to attend Guiding / Scouting groups  for perhaps more activity based sessions as well as speaking to adult groups..

Fairtrade Fortnight 2017

In case you were wondering, Fairtrade Fortnight this year is Monday 27 February – Sunday 12 March.

Talks / activities

Tailor made according to your requirements – length, subject, age and knowledge of audience / class.

I can introduce  Faitrade, or talk on one particular aspect e.g. Traidcraft or the difference Fairtrade actually makes in the lives of individuals. I have met several Fairtrade producers and being able to talk about individuals I have met can help make the importance of Fairtrade ‘real’ in a way that talking about the general principles doesn’t always.

Primary Schools

Please note:  experience has told me that talking to a single class or age group or splitting a school into 2 or 3 groups works far better than me talking to a whole school of 5 – 11 year olds.

To arrange

If you think I can help please contact me to discuss your requirements.

Contact me via :

email teresa@goatham.co.uk or tel:01747 823797


My expenses – usually just travelling expenses (18p / mile), possibly more if you would like me to bring materials / consumables.

If you are a group that usually pays speakers a donation would be appreicated, which I will pass to Traidcraft Exchange, the charity part of Traidcraft that does development work.

Are you a Fairtrade speaker too?

I am happy to use this page to publicise other speakers – please let me know if you would like your contact details  and a little bit about your availability etc. added here.
