Las Vegas Speakers Bureau Helps With Virtual Connectedness
Las Vegas Speakers Bureau has created an ‘Inspiring Speakers Series’ featuring virtual connectedness where people who have overcome extreme adversity have found a way to thrive. The stories are shared virtually in real-time and include employee interaction over existing conferencing platforms. Las Vegas Speakers Bureau has many great options to choose from and will work with you to find the best fit for your audience. The common thread is all the speakers being featured have an inspiring story to share about facing and working through an unforeseen challenge and thriving.
“There are some speakers, who ordinarily get tens of thousands of dollars plus travel costs, who will address your employees for much, much less,” says Jaki Baskow, owner/founder, Las Vegas Speakers Bureau. “During this time, it is important to continue to inspire your team, and with this option, you can do that without having to dig deep into your pocket.”
