ACEs Connection Speakers & Trainers Bureau Pilot Announced!


ACEs Connection is proud to announce the pilot of our Speakers & Trainers Bureau! This pilot program will run from March 14 through May 1, 2019. During this pilot, the bureau is free of charge.

The Speakers & Trainers Bureau is a service that provides to subscribers a list of vetted different speakers and trainers for hire. The list contains information on a Speaker's credentials, experience, sector specialties, and contact information.

We developed the Speakers & Trainers Bureau because you often ask us to help locate speakers and trainers. This bureau will help us keep track of resources available and enable you to easily search for speakers and trainers.

People who would like to join the Speakers & Trainers Bureau can apply byfilling out this google form. ACEs Connection staff will then vet the speaker. The vetting process requires applicants to agree that they will always cover the five parts of ACEs Science:

The five parts of ACEs Science include:

  1. The original ACEs study and research on child adversity and resilience
  2. How ACEs impact brain development – neurodevelopment or brain science
  3. How ACEs impact lifelong health – physiological or body science
  4. How ACEs impact generations, including historical trauma – epigenetic science
  5. How trauma-informed & resilience-building practices help heal ACEs – neurobiological science

Speakers and trainers must also be members of ACEsConnection.comSpeakers and trainers must also be members of Although we have a vetting process we strongly encourage you to communicate with Speakers and Trainers to make sure they fit your needs. 

After a speaker or trainer has been vetted by ACEs Connection, the listing will be included on the bureau map in March. The listing will stay live until the first week of May. Additionally we are testing a Speakers & Trainers Database on ACEs Connection and you will receive a listing in that database.   

After the pilot concludes, there are three tiers for speakers who are approved to be included in the Speakers & Trainers Bureau. This pricing structure is comparable to other speakers bureaus you may find on similar websites. The cost structure for each tier is:

$200 for 3 months

$350 for 6 months

$700 for 1 year

We hope you will join us for this opportunity to improve our Bureau and prepare it for launch. Thank you for your support of ACEs Connection and this project.

While I completely understand the need to cover expenses, I would encourage you to consider a reduced fee.  For rural states like West Virginia, speakers are rarely paid by requestors and speakers themselves cannot afford the fees above.
