Invite Brian to Speak

Dear Friends,

Thanks for your inquiry about having Brian McLaren come to speak. Since the late 1990’s, Brian has been in high demand as a conference speaker, often traveling more than 100 days per year. In the next few years, he will reduce his travel significantly due to family priorities, environmental concerns, and writing commitments. Brian's 2013 schedule is now full and we are currently accepting engagements for 2014 and early 2015. We will open booking for late 2015 on October 1, 2013.

1. In-Person Appearances

Between September and May of each year, he will be available for a maximum of four one-day engagements in North America per month. Preference will be given to pastor/clergy and college/young adult groups of 350 or more. He will also be available for 1-2 international trips per year of four to five days each.

2. Virtual Appearances

Instead of having Brian travel to speak with your group, you can have him address your group via interactive video conferencing technology. By using Skype or another free or inexpensive online service, Brian can deliver a lecture with visuals, and he can take questions and respond to comments as well. This arrangement saves money (air travel, hotels, etc.), reduces environmental impact, and, when combined with small group interaction (for which we offer support and resources), can provide a very effective educational experience. Equipment needed: high speed internet (not dial-up), computer with Skype capabilities, video projector with sound.
