Speakers Bureau & Experts Guide

The Palm Beach Atlantic University (PBA) Speaker and Expert Guide is a tool to help local and national journalists create more compelling stories by identifying and connecting with University faculty members. In addition, the guide helps churches and program chairmen of civic and educational organizations to find interesting and informed speakers.
When using this guide, please keep in mind that faculty are on campus according to an academic calendar; you’re not likely to find them during Christmas or spring breaks, for example (check the university calendar for additional information). In addition, students and classes are uppermost in the minds of faculty members, and they may not be immediately available.

To arrange an interview with one of the experts and for general information about PBA, please feel free to contact me directly:
