FAQ

I would like to attend a public-speaking event. Is that possible?

Absolutely! We hold public talks every Thursday open to all. All you have to do is sign up for the event with your email and you will receive a link to access the talk at the scheduled time. To find out what the next talk is, visit www.mirthy.co.uk/talks.

I’m currently quite lonely. Can Mirthy help?

Mirthy’s mission is to reduce loneliness and keep older adults connected in their communities. With Covid-19, we have had to change direction to focus on online interaction. We have public talks every Thursday with a live Q and A: you can ask the Speaker questions and interact with fellow attendees using the chat function. If you have Facebook, you can also join our Mirthy community group here.

I’d like to get more involved. How can I help?

- If you’re interested in becoming a speaker and providing an online talk, please email abbie@mirthy.co.uk stating the proposed topic of your first talk.

- If you represent an organisation and would like to host interesting talks for your residents or members, you’re in the right place! Visit our catalogue page to browse our available talks and click ‘Book Now’ to book a speaker. Any questions, contact alex@mirthy.co.uk.

- If you are an audience member, spreading the word about the Mirthy mission to friends and family is greatly appreciated. Why not invite a friend along to a talk with you and give them a call after the event? You can also join our Facebook community group here.

I want to tell more people about Mirthy! How can I reach out to more people?

We would love people to print off or share our posters on social media, particularly at a time where we know online events are both needed and much appreciated. Please email abbie@mirthy.co.uk asking for a poster and stating where you plan to display the poster- it could be your window or a community board in the local Chippy! There will be information in the New Year about how to become a Mirthy Ambassador.

I’m not a public speaker, but I love to write. Is Mirthy interested?

Fantastic! We are looking for new writers for the Articles section of our website. Please email abbie@mirthy.co.uk if you are interested in writing an article for the Mirthy community.

What Our Customers Say

"This was a wonderful experience.

There is a saying that if one doesn't learn something new everyday then the day is wasted. 


The last hour has been so packed with information that if I learn nothing new for several days there is plenty in storage for me to ponder on."

"As a lead partner, we are excited to work with Mirthy and trial this new model which will bring talks to our 20,000 residents in their own homes via webinar technology.

We look forward to a long-term partnership.”

"Thanks so much, my iPad worked perfectly and the talk was superb.
 
I have been to Bruges lots of times and it was fantastic to see it again; I never tire of going there.


You did a wonderful thing and please thank everybody concerned. I would like to see the rest of the talks this week.
