The Utilities District of Western Indiana REMC recently announced it now offers a speakers bureau to groups in the region, including area businesses, social and fraternal organizations, agricultural groups, youth groups, education groups, seniors groups, women’s groups, and trade associations. 

     The speakers bureau is made up of UDWI professionals with strong public speaking experience and a wide variety of expertise.  The speeches cover vital business topics, including leadership, traits of a successful organization, effective marketing and communications, exceptional customer service, the future of electric power, organizational finance and planning, and human resources.  All presentations are free. 

     “Our national trade organizations conduct ongoing research on all kinds of topics, from how to run a successful business or organization to economic development or leadership,” comments Lyna Landis, Marketing & Communications Manager at UDWI.    “UDWI has access to that information and wants to share it locally.  We’ve organized the topics into entertaining, helpful presentations of all lengths that will offer resources to businesses and groups in our communities.”
