Our Young Leaders

We are excited to announce our Senior Speaker model!

We’ve launched this new cohort of 15 Jack Talks Speakers for this year as a way to:

  • Fulfill a need in the Talks program to have speakers who are available and trained for advanced Talk opportunities (e.g. workshops, adult Talks, high-profile Talks, corporate Talks)

  • Provide additional training and professional development opportunities for speakers

A Senior Speaker is a Jack Talks Speaker who has chosen to enhance their skills and commitment to mental health as part of the Jack Talks program. This small cohort is selected from experienced speakers. These Senior Speakers take on additional responsibilities and opportunities while continuing to deliver regional Talks. 

We invite you to view their profiles below and learn more about the Senior Speaker model by clicking here.
