Speakers Bureau: supporting people from refugee backgrounds to share their experiences with others

We support people from refugee backgrounds to build their presentation skills and share their experiences with New Zealand audiences.

Speakers Bureau is a professional training programme that supports people from refugee backgrounds to share their experiences with New Zealand audiences. Graduates have been invited to speak at universities, Parliament, Rotary, schools, and conferences.

A sample of feedback from audiences has included:

'Students were blown away with your speaker's presentation today - they have been buzzing all afternoon and their motivation has gone through the roof! Staff were also deeply affected.'

'Dennis and Mohammad's presentations were definitely the highlight of our event and set the scene for the whole day.'

'His presentation breathed life into our studies and also provided us with many challenging thoughts to ponder.'
