The Collective Speakers

 We believe the members of The Collective can learn from other proven leaders working in the community.

From the performers at Walt Disney World to the engineers at Lockheed Martin, the Orlando region is a diverse place with a diverse population. The Collective taps into Central Florida’s pool of talented professionals each month by hosting speakers who are willing to share their knowledge on a range of subjects.

Leaders from:

• Business
• Tourism
• Nonprofits
• Government
• Faith Community
• Media

Since The Collective launched in March 2017, the group has hosted some of Central Florida’s most respected leaders, including Florida Blue’s Tony Jenkins, the City of Orlando’s Marcia Hope Goodwin,  WKMG’s Julie Broughton, the University of Central Florida’s Grant Heston, Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer, Orlando Police Chief John Mina, Walt Disney World’s Ramit Kapoor, former member of the Florida House of Representatives Dick Batchelor, the Orlando Magic’s Linda Landman Gonzalez and many more.

However, there is no shortage of intelligent and talented people who call Central Florida home. The Collective is continuously looking for speakers to address the group.
