PUBLIC SPEAKING

I am an experienced and engaging speaker, comfortable talking to business, community, school groups, the media (print, radio, TV), and general audiences. My areas of expertise include clean technologies, zero waste, circular economy, sustainable economic development, and green careers. Speaking engagements include:

“Amy Perlmutter is a longtime friend and professional peer. When I was searching for guest speakers for our UMass Boston Graduate MBA Introduction to Environmental Management course, Amy’s name immediately rose to the top of the list. 

“She is passionate about the environment, and her energetic, engaging style enables Amy to effectively share her knowledge and real world experiences.”
