MPSF: The Best Speaker Events in the Bay Area

The MPSF Speaker Series, founded in 1990, is now the largest community speaker series in the United States, averaging over 8800 subscribers annually.

Our original (Peninsula) Series began in San Mateo, in response to the desire for stimulating intellectual entertainment in San Mateo. The concept of bringing nationally recognized speakers to a local community was so successful that over the years we expanded into Marin (now with two nights, Marin and Marin 2) and San Francisco, which ultimately moved into the beautiful and historic Oakland Paramount Theatre to the great delight of continuing subscribers.

The 2020-2021 MPSF Speaker Series brings seven speaker events online to adhere to health and safety guidelines for COVID-19 –curated with your input to present a range of ideas and innovations for the enrichment of our community. Speakers represent a wide variety of subjects from world affairs and politics to business and economics, education and the arts to the environment. Speakers are chosen on the basis of their extraordinary – usually lifetime – achievements and unique expertise in their particular field of endeavor.

"This series is extremely well run and organized in all respects. But the quality of speakers remains the key component to keep us coming back each year. We're looking for speakers that bring unique content that we won't necessarily obtain in our day to day following of news, events, and the world."
