The Easiest Way to Choose a Commencement Speaker

Posted by Alexis Washington

According to the “Association of American Colleges and Universities,” there are nearly 5,300 accredited colleges and universities in the United States. In addition, about 3.6 million students are expected to graduate from high school in 2018–19 — that adds up to thousands of ceremonies which need a commencement speaker.


If each ceremony features one commencement speaker, this means that the annual demand for a speaker can total up to tens of thousands!




But with so much demand, where is the supply?


Finding the perfect keynote speaker for a commencement or graduation ceremony on your own can be a daunting task! But before you take a deep dive into an abyss of names, why not start with ours?
