As far as I am concerned please go ahead and "be" our speaker for 

I will try to change to "generally" later today and update speaker 
to be Michael Paoli.

I hope someone else will make the announcement.
I know Michael does not want to make the announcement as going to be the 
speaker and I do not blame him for not wanting to do it!

I will be out untill tonight, will check on things at that time!
