Speakers Directory

Lakeland College is pleased to present its Speakers Directory. This guide lists faculty and staff members who are happy to share their expertise with the greater community. Lakeland is proud to connect with and serve as a vital resource to the communities it serves.

The directory is an educational service available to:

  • Civic organizations
  • Business and professional societies
  • Schools and clubs
  • Government organizations
  • Religious organizations
  • Other community gatherings

All members of Lakeland's Speakers Directory have a professional interest in the fields they represent, and welcome the opportunity to bring new ideas to your next meeting or event.

To request a speaker, contact Lakeland's community relations manager at (920) 565-1050. If you cannot find a topic that fits your needs, please don't hesitate to ask and we will work to find a speaker who can meet your specific needs.

Please contact us at least four weeks in advance of your event when requesting a speaker. However, if you need a speaker on shorter notice, we will attempt to work with you to meet your needs.

Speaker Fees

Lakeland operates its Speakers Directory as a public service; however, some of our speakers may request an honorarium to cover presentation supplies/materials and travel. Honorariums will be negotiated on a case-by-case basis prior to the engagement of a speaker.

If you have questions, please contact Gina Covelli, community relations manager, at (920) 565-1050 or .
