A speech should not just be a sharing of information, but a sharing of yourself.
— Ralph Archbold


Reuse International's "Reuse Movement Speakers Bureau" is a program guided by our Global Reuse Council.

We are working to expand the audience for the valuable ideas and good work of reuse experts - whether they be pracitioners, authors, journalists, researchers, documentary makers or event planners - who focus on the transition to a more sustainable future. The Reuse Movement Speakers Bureau provides expert speakers for conferences, meetings, training programs, and community, business, and university speaker series.

The Reuse Movement Speakers Bureau represent accomplished leaders, authors, and advocates with a track record of effectiveness and vision. Collectively, they have made hundreds of speeches and presentations all over the world. They have informed and inspired thousands with messages of hope and direction for the creation of a sustainable future. They know that individuals can make a difference because they have made a difference. Their experiences and speaking subjects cover discuss how reuse fits into a myriad of subjects including resisliency, sustainable materials management, zero waste, green building, the circular economy, product stewardship, and more.

As you consider which speaker or speakers may best meet your needs, you may want to keep several things in mind. First, we have provide a brief biographies for each speakers below along with a link to their full professional profiles. Second, we are constantly developing new information on our speakers that can help you better match them with your needs. Some of that information may be found by using links on the bottom of speaker's bio. Some can be provided by email in response to your inquiries and requests. So if you want more detailed information or have questions about particular speakers, please ask us. 

Finally, don't hesitate to ask us for our ideas and recommendations concerning speakers that might meet your needs. We will do our best to understand your audience and your objectives, and with our detailed knowledge of our speakers' strengths and backgrounds, we will develop options and supporting information for your consideration.

If you have selected the speaker you want to engage, if you know when, where, and for what type of appearance you want to engage your speaker, and if the funding is secured and you are ready to enter into an agreement, we'll quickly confirm the speaker's availability and hold the date while the paperwork is processed. The actual agreement will be directly between your organization and the speaker you are hiring.

If, as is sometimes the case, one or more of the issues has not yet been decided or if the funding has not yet been secured, we'll work with you to provide whatever information and assistance you need from us. If you will be submitting a funding or grant proposal, we'll work with you to determine the cost of your selected speaker. If you already have a budget, we'll work with you to figure out which speakers can be engaged within the constraints it imposes.

To book* a speaker or for more information, please contact us or the speakers directly. *Please note when there is a fee/honorarium paid, our speakers will donate a portion of the proceeds to Reuse International.
