Events in the series typically consist of 50-55 minutes of prepared remarks from the speaker followed by 30-35 minutes of moderated Q&A discussion that is driven in part by subscriber-submitted questions. 

Subscribing patrons will be treated like members of a special community who play an active role in the series by providing feedback and discussing the topics raised in each performance in an exclusive online forum.

The Arizona Speaker Series is dedicated to providing the highest quality speaker experience in the country right here in Phoenix, with a very personal touch for the subscribing members of our community.
