Hummingbird Speaks is a speakers bureau focusing on amplifying unheard voices and providing diverse perspectives on various topics!

Our speakers provide diverse perspectives on topics such as workplace culture, humanity in the workplace, the LGBTQ+ Community, Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion, underserved communities, leadership, coaching, & more!

Why Hummingbird Speaks?
Hummingbird Humanity works to research and vet speakers to create a seamless process of providing the right speaker for your topic at a price point that works for your organization.
In addition to streamlining your speaker search process, a member of the Hummingbird team will assist with connecting you with your speaker for an introductory kick-off call to ensure you are given the space to share your speaking engagement needs directly with the speaker.
We will also provide a digital engagement coordinator to manage the technical aspect of your speaking engagement for needs such as presentation screen sharing, chat engagement, & providing a safe space for folks to engage anonymously.
“On our end, we feel like the process was very smooth and honestly could not have been better for our first celebration of Pride. Our initial exploratory meeting with you was easy to schedule and the turnaround time on the proposal was quick and exactly what we were looking for….I would partner with Hummingbird Speaks again and I would absolutely recommend the team to others.”
