Why Do We Offer American Speakers?

Traveling to the United States is the best way to get to know America. But short of that, you can get the flavor of America right here in Morocco. One of the top priorities of the U.S. Mission to Morocco is to arrange for our diplomatic representatives to visit and speak to groups of people across Morocco. In the past, we have arranged for officers to discuss American foreign policy, the work of the United States Government, and other aspects of American society, politics, and culture at a number of different schools, universities, and organizations, or at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate.

To facilitate this work, the U.S. Embassy has established a Speakers Bureau, offering your group or school the chance to hear from Americans first-hand on the topics of interest to you. Our goal is to get American diplomats talking face-to-face with people who want to hear from them. Diplomacy is not only shaping policy; it’s sharing experiences. Our staff come to Morocco with varied and extensive academic, cultural and professional backgrounds, all of which we are eager to share.

Whether you’re interested in life in America or U.S foreign policy, the Embassy has someone who can speak on the issue.

What We Can Talk About?

Some of the topics we can offer American perspectives on include:

  • Foreign policy
  • Politics
  • History and culture
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Social media trends
  • Study opportunities in the U.S/ exchange programs
  • Funding opportunities for associations and NGO’S

How we can talk to you?

Speakers are available at no charge and can travel to meet you and your audience.  Or, we are happy to welcome groups to either the Embassy in Rabat, or the Consulate General in Casablanca.  If an in-person meeting isn’t possible, we can even connect with you virtually via digital videoconferencing.

If you are interested in arranging an American speaker, we would be pleased to arrange such a visit. Please do not hesitate to submit your request via our online request form.

Please request speakers at least one month in advance. If you have additional questions please contact the outreach coordinator at IRCRabat@state.gov
