Have you ever found yourself looking for local professionals to speak with your students or professional group? The Cartersville-Bartow Chamber of Commerce has a new resource to connect the public to subject matter experts that can assist by sharing their experience and expertise. This new tool is the Speakers Bureau and it can be found on ForBartow.com, the Chamber’s new workforce development website.
What is the Speakers Bureau?
The Speakers Bureau exists to connect educators and event planners to local speakers for a multitude of programs where professionals are needed. A few areas of expertise that are offered from our Speakers Bureau participants are: Advertising & Marketing, Customer Service, Diversity & Inclusion, Education, Entrepreneurship, Finance, Human Resources, Leadership, Legal, Motivational, Non-Profit, and Professional/Personal Development.
