What is a Speakers Bureau?
A speakers bureau holds a database of contacts/businesses from diverse fields. This collection of business leaders is dedicated to sharing their industry and business expertise by going into schools to speak with students about post-secondary and career choices. The speakers bureau team makes the connection and introduction between the speaker and teacher, and supports both parties throughout the process of booking and logistics. Speakers will provide classroom support for scope and sequence.
