What the Audience is saying...

This series is extremely well run and organized in all respects. But the quality of speakers remains the key component to keep us coming back each year. We're looking for speakers that bring unique content that we won't necessarily obtain in our day to day following of news, events, and the world and this Series provides just that.

My husband and I look forward to our date night at the MPSF Speaker Series each month. The speakers have made us laugh and cry, delivered hopeful inspiration and unique perspectives, and most importantly, brought the local community together for an unforgettable evening of entertainment.

Each event is a gateway to new ideas, prompting reflection and dialogue long after the applause fades. My buddies and I eagerly anticipate these gatherings, not just for the knowledge shared but for the connections forged with like-minded individuals. In a world craving meaningful engagement, the MPSF Speaker Series offers a sanctuary for thought-provoking discourse and collective growth.
