Speaking Engagements 
& Panels


Looking for an industry thought-leader with
in-depth green-building and sustainability
knowledge who will educate, inspire and
motivate your audience?

The core group of The Spinnaker Group's
leadership team has long been tapped by event
planners -- corporate, industry, municipalities
and nonprofit -- to provide relevant, engaging green-building talks or
participate in panel discussions. Recent engagements include the list below. Reach out to Spinnaker~Speakers and have a discussion about whether a Spinnaker team member might align directly with your event's purpose and audience.

Tapping a Spinnaker team member for your event also brings with it our company's own promotion of your program.  

Lastly, a number of our programs and educational offerings can also be presented in Spanish and Arabic.
