The Regional Opportunity Initiatives, Inc. Speakers Bureau provides K-12 schools an opportunity to bring awareness to the many careers available in Southwest Central Indiana through meaningful connections with regional employees. ROI maintains a list of local volunteer speakers who come from a wide variety of disciplines, many with specialization in Southwest Central Indiana’s key industry sectors of life sciences, national security and defense and advanced manufacturing.

Speakers share interesting points about their company, real-world problems, job responsibilities, personal connections regarding their unique career path, and the skills and education students need to pursue that line of work. Many speakers also bring items that illustrate specific job functions or products.

All speakers will be contacted by ROI and a background check will be conducted prior to being placed on the speaker list. If you would like to be considered as a speaker, please fill out the form below. ROI will contact you to obtain further information.
