Speakers bureau

Hands Across the Hills has been in demand to speak to groups and audiences of all sizes. 

 

Our usual format is to have two speakers, who show a short film about Hands Across the Hills, followed by an hour’s presentation of our work, including at least a half hour for questions and answers (Q&A). 

 

Total presentation time: 60-90 minutes.

Our speakers are also available for media interviews.
