“Working with the ISB has been a life changing experience for me. It has empowered me with confidence and knowledge about a subject so close to all our hearts.”
“The ISB training reinforced my sense of professionalism, in all that I do, tapping into the Muslim ideal of perfecting one's craft. The ISB embodies that. An authenticity that permeates all that we do."
These were the words shared by two certified speakers with the Islamic Speakers Bureau of Atlanta. ISB speakers tell stories of empowerment, acceptance, outreach, professionalism, opportunity, and building relationships that they wouldn’t have experienced if it weren’t for the ISB.
