The Speaker Bureau is a group of dedicated volunteers from across Canada that promotes discussion and learning on global issues and inspires Canadians to get involved in international development.
Are you looking for a dynamic speaker to inform and motivate your audience about global issues and international development? Do you want to learn more about how people from across the country are contributing to reducing global poverty and find out what you can do too?
Presentations range from 20 to 60 minutes. Through personal stories and speakersâ€™ first-hand experience, audiences will learn about the value and impact of international development and how Canadians are contributing to improving the quality of life of communities in the developing world.
Presentations can be tailored to a variety of audiences, such as students, educators, community groups, service clubs, businesses/corporations, student leadership associations, and non-profit organizations.
Topics range from empowering communities, promoting gender equality, improving rural livelihoods and strengthening access to quality education and healthcare. Meet the speakers.
We currently have speakers in Truro, Calgary, Edmonton, Greater Toronto Area, Montreal, Ottawa, Quebec City, and Vancouver. We will try our best to respond to requests in other communities, availability and resources permitting.
This program is made possible with the support from Global Affairs Canada.
