Speakers bureau


Do you need a guest speaker to talk at your school, college, civic league, business, or other group? TWUUG can help!

What we can offer

As businesses, schools, and other organizations continue to show more interest in Linux, Unix, FOSS, and related topics, there is an increasing demand for information from reliable sources. There is nothing quite as powerful as hearing from a local user who has real-world experience. TWUUG has a group of users in the field, including systems professionals and college-level instructors. Many of these TWUUG members are quite willing to share their experience and time with others.
