The Speaker’s Bureau program was founded in 2015 after discussing different avenues for those we support to be able to find a way to tell their stories and advocate for themselves and others. To date the bureau continues to grow with additions of those outside the company joining. The speakers enjoy speaking to any size group and will often travel to area businesses to speak to a group. Recently they have started a “Coffee and Conversation”, where they will speak about a specific topic and afterwards have a panel discussion. The speakers work very hard on their topics and even started to dabble in creating digital stories. If you would like to learn more about Speaker’s Bureau or invite them to come speak to your group please contact us at the information below. Also, check out their recent videos!
