Powell Gardens’ Speakers Bureau is a resource for businesses, interest groups, clubs, and more in our community. The Speakers Bureau brings together a collection of knowledgeable individuals from Powell Gardens, making them available for speaking engagements. Consider requesting a speaker for your next conference, meeting, or continued education event.
Powell Gardens’ Speakers Bureau fees are $75 for non-profit organizations and $100 for for-profit organizations.
Speakers must be booked at least one month in advance. Powell Gardens cannot guarantee that we will have a presenter for your date, but we will work with your organization to find a date that works for all parties involved.
Speakers Bureau presentations are approximately one hour long and accompanied by a visual aid (PowerPoint). Powell Gardens’ staff can supply their own laptop, but will need visual support, such as a TV or projector and screen. There is an additional fee for organizations outside of Powell Gardens’ 25-mile radius.
