You may request a specific speaker using our request form. However, please note that final speaker assignments are contingent upon speakers’ availability and requesting a specific speaker does not guarantee their assignment to your event.
How long is the typical presentation?
Presentations are typically one hour in length but may vary depending on the set-up of a given event. Some of our speakers are able to provide multi-day workshops.
Do you allow for virtual presentations?
We do! If you are planning a virtual event, please indicate this on your request form.
Do you work with survivor speakers?
Yes. Our priority is for all speaker events in which HEAL participates to include someone with a lived experience of trafficking. HEAL has taken Freedom United’s Survivor Alliance Pledge to work ethically with survivors of human trafficking.

What is the process for speaker fees?
We work on a sliding scale based on the budget of the requesting organization and HEAL collects a finders’ fee from speaker honorariums. When submitting the Speaker Request Form, please include the honorarium amount your organization can provide and, for in-person events, also indicate whether your organization is able to cover speakers’ travel and lodging expenses.
