Poverty Speakers

Several factors contribute to the global problem of poverty. According to The World Bank, almost half of the world’s population – 3.4 billion people – struggled to meet basic needs in 2018. 

Our poverty speakers address both the causes and the consequences of global poverty and inequality. Some of them are sharing their personal story about a life fighting poverty. A keynote on poverty and inequality will give you insight into different types of poverty in the world as well as keys to reducing poverty.

Our speakers address consequences as well as solutions to poverty


There are more contributors to the problem of poverty, such as disability, lack of education, theft, war and natural disasters, just to name a few. The consequences of poverty are the basic needs not being met, including food, clothing and shelter. Poverty reduction is therefore a major goal and issue for many international organizations, such as the United Nations and The World Bank.

Keynote speakers on poverty often campaign for the poor and try to activate citizens to be a part of the global movement to end extreme poverty. The speakers are highly motivational with the ability to mobilize and motivate large groups of people. Keynotes on global poverty, social change, and civic engagement are very common and speakers help people realize their own ability and power to make a difference.

A keynote on poverty can be both insightful and engaging for an organization as it covers a global problem that is of great consequence. Understanding poverty and learning how to help can be of great use for companies and organizations that want to contribute to ending poverty.

Solutions to reducing poverty in the US could be creating more jobs, raising the minimum wage and invest in affordable, high-quality child care and early education – just to name a few! The best way out of poverty is a well-paying job. In addition, supporting pay equity is important to fight poverty. Our poverty speakers will elaborate on different solutions to reducing poverty, however, there is no simple solution to global poverty. 

Book a thought-provoking and informative keynote on poverty with one of our top experts or one of our great personalities sharing their own story of a life in poverty. Our professional consultants are ready to help you find the perfect speaker for your event.
