FreeSpeakers.org goes virtual with offerings – Kane County Chronicle
In fact, some speakers have updated their topics to reflect the financial and health crises due to COVID-19, a news release stated.
The community service project, FreeSpeakers.org, is a pro bono speakers bureau serving the region’s clubs and organizations for nearly 25 years. It was started in Hinsdale, IL.
FreeSpeakers.org normally serves the community through live, in-person seminars and speaking engagements. Rarely do the speakers engage in virtual meetings. However, a lot has changed due to the coronavirus.
“We asked our speakers about the idea of presenting virtually, and the response was very enthusiastic,” Andy Richardson, director of FreeSpeakers.org, stated in the release. “Perhaps you are continuing your organization’s meetings virtually via a web conference such as Zoom. If you need a presentation during this time, know that most of our speakers are willing to present virtually.”
As always, all speakers present at no cost, and there is no fee from the bureau.
