The Embassy Speakers Program helps connect U.S. Embassy officials with Thai audiences in schools, universities, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and groups throughout Thailand. The goal of our program is to broaden the understanding of the United States, as well as to promote dialogue and sharing of ideas between Thais and Americans. The Embassy Speakers Program also provides an opportunity for students of English language to practice their English skills and think critically about global issues. Thai speakers are available for discussions as well.
Embassy speakers are available to speak on a wide variety of topics to locations throughout Thailand. Possible discussion topics include: Thai-U.S. Relations, U.S.-South East Asia Relations, the Role of the U.S. Embassy, Life and Culture in the United States, the U.S. Economy, Health and Medicine, English Conversation, and Studying in the United States, among others. Other topic suggestions are welcome. Speakers from the U.S. Embassy will present background information about the desired topic and then engage the audience in thoughtful discussions on the issue. They can address any size group – from single classrooms to large assemblies of students. The Embassy Speakers Program is a free service offered by the U.S. Embassy in Bangkok.
