College of Business faculty should complete the form below to request a speaker from the Speakers Bureau for a class.
Speakers should present for no longer than 45 minutes. Speakers may be asked to prepare a presentation based on faculty requests and their expertise.
Faculty members will be expected to meet their guest in the classroom 10 minutes prior to the beginning of class and introduce the speaker to the class. Speaker gifts should be picked up from the Development Office (Bate 3121) prior to class and presented by to the speaker at the conclusion of the presentation.
A thank you note should be sent to the speaker by the faculty host.
For the success of the Speakers Bureau and to be considerate of our speaker's time, faculty should coordinate all speaking engagements through the Bureau. It is important that we don't over-burden those who have volunteered and that we maintain a record of scheduled visits from our distinguished guests.
