  • My Guide partnership
  • puppy walker
  • or wonderful stories from our dedicated volunteers

All of our speakers are helping to raise awareness and funds to support our mission, to make sure that no one living with sight loss is left out of life!

Our speakers can offer a variety of interesting talks that cater to all kinds of audiences:
