Personal stories to inspire

Are you running a United Way workplace campaign? Hearing a personal account of how a gift to United Way creates opportunities for a better life for people in our region can offer your colleagues a deeper understanding of where donations go. Our speakers can be selected according to your company’s area of interest and will come directly to your workplace (or other designated meeting place) to share their heartfelt experiences.

To book an agency speaker, contact us at 416-777-2001 or speakersbureau@uwgt.org.
