Faculty and Alumni Speakers
Events with faculty and alumni speakers are usually very popular and can drive membership. In addition to faculty, alumni often want to hear from other alumni. Utilize your regional contacts and network. Locally, who do you know that would make a good speaker? Another alternative is to build an event around viewing a live or prerecorded presentation from the Wharton Webinar Series. If you are interested in scheduling a Wharton professor to speak, please fill out the Faculty Request Form before reaching out on your own. Given the extensive commitments of Wharton faculty, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to meet all speaker requests, but we will work with you to best accommodate the request. Contact your staff liaison for special requests and to discuss alternatives to having a faculty speaker.
