The Henry Ford Heritage Association is proud to offer our speakers bureau to your group or audience. Henry Ford’s interests and activities went well beyond his automobiles and we have several members with the expertise to provide informative talks on a wide range of subjects related to his life and accomplishments.
Our speakers are available for a modest tax deductible contribution to the association. All of our presentations include a copy of our introductory newsletter for each member of your audience. Some of our speaker’s profiles are included here.
For more information on how the Henry Ford Heritage Association can provide an informative talk tailored to your audience please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and a member of our speakers bureau will be in touch!
