Welcome to Burman Speaks

Burman University is dedicated to providing students with a quality Seventh-day Adventist education as well as a stimulating work environment for our faculty conducting research, but we are also passionate about sharing the abundance of talent and expertise that exists within our campus community. An initiative of the Burman University Office of Advancement and Marketing Department, Burman Speaks is a bureau of key presenters and performers made available to the public.

Our vision is to encourage the spread of ideas worth sharing and to provide a platform for the best and brightest of Burman University's faculty, alumni, and students to share their ideas, tell their stories, and engage with audiences across Canada.

Choose from a diverse list of speakers to present at your upcoming event today! Topics include everything from ethics, conflict, leadership, international development, entrepreneurship, education, religion, music, women's rights, biology, peace, and justice.
