Speakers Bureau

Inspiring Speakers

The Community Living Speakers Bureau is available for speaking engagements at your community club, classroom, event or organizational meeting, Our speakers deliver their own, personal stories, that will leave you feeling inspired.

The individuals involved in the Speakers Bureau have had a variety of life experiences and their talks can be tailored to any group. Some of the topics that the Speakers Bureau has brought to their presentations include:

  • Speaking to classrooms and schools about the impacts of bullying
  • Telling their personal stories of working to be included in community life
  • Experiences with self-advocating and standing up for themselves
  • Their employment experiences and how it has impacted their lives

There is no cost to book the speakers. They have experience with groups both large and small, and with an audience of adults or children.

The Speakers Bureau is also a way that individuals with intellectual disabilities can work on building self-confidence while being included in community initiatives.
