When the Rebbe called for the establishment of The Shluchim Office, helping shluchim find speakers was a specified goal.
"...א מקום מרכזי (און א טעלעפאן) וואו יעדער שליח קען זיך פארבינדן און בעטן אן עצה אדער הילף אין קיום שליחותו במקומו, מ'זאל אים צושטעלן א רעדנער וכו' וכו'..." (משיחת שבת כינוס השלוחים תשמ"ז – ע"ד התייסדות משרד השלוחים)"
"A center should be established, reachable via telephone, which every Shliach may contact to receive counsel or assistance in fulfilling his Shlichus in his location, [i.e.] finding a speaker and the like.”
(Kinus Hashluchim - 5747)
Indeed, The Speakers Bureau (as it was originally called) was one of the very first programs launched by The Shluchim Office. Over the years, the project facilitated countless events and speaking tours in Chabad Houses around the world and helped bring the work of Shluchim to new heights.
As we continue to develop our programs to meet the evolving needs of Shluchim, we are excited to be taking this initiative started by the Rebbe to its next stage.
