Request a Speaker

If you are searching for a speaker for an upcoming program or event, please fill out our online Speakers Bureau Form to request this complimentary service. Sessions can be interactive or presented as a lecture and possibly scheduled with as little as one week of notice based on the requested speaker’s schedule. It is not necessary to have audio/visual equipment as our speakers can bring their own.

Our speakers have been invited to present at various types of locations, such as:

  • Assisted living facilities
  • Community-based non-profit groups
  • High school classrooms
  • Local companies’ staff development trainings
  • Public libraries

Examples of recent speaking engagements that have been coordinated through the College of DuPage Speakers Bureau include:

  • An interactive session for a small group at an assisted living facility with Amelia Barrett, associate professor of theater arts, titled “Use Improvisational Exercises to Get People in a Playful Mood, Promote Spontaneity, Trust, and Foster Both Physical and Mental Activity”
  • A lecture at a local investment firm with Dr. Kenneth Gray, professor of psychology, titled “Behavioral Finance: How Married Couples Choose Their Investments”
