Reaching Out – Booked Out is going digital!

From Monday 20th April, Booked Out will be running a range of online sessions as part of our new initiative Reaching Out.

We have a range of expert speakers with years of presentation experience who will be delivering sessions on a variety of topics. These will be high quality, engaging sessions designed by the speakers themselves with core links to the English curriculum. 

Online sessions will be delivered live through Zoom, Skype or whichever platform works best for your school, and will run for 30-45 minutes.

This is an Australia-wide project, so schools from all over the country can book any speaker offering online sessions. This is your chance to host an interstate speaker you’ve always wanted to meet!

Online sessions will be offered at a reduced price to support schools during these difficult times. Prices start at $250 ex GST per session, plus a booking fee. Some speaker exceptions will apply.

Many of our speakers have already signed up to deliver online sessions, with more to be expected. We have added a new category (‘Online – Virtual Visits’) to our search feature so you can now browse our speaker list and find the speaker best suited to your enquiry.

To see who is available, click on ‘Find a Speaker‘ and select ‘Online – Virtual Visits’ in the Audience, Speaker Type or Location categories.

We will organise these virtual sessions in the same efficient way we handle your in-person bookings. You can make an enquiry online or via a speaker page, send us an email at or call us on 03 9824 0177. 

We are hopeful that in-person school visits will resume in Term 3, so online sessions are a temporary measure to continue encouraging a love of literacy among your students.

This project is supported by the Copyright Agency’s Cultural Fund.
