Our Speakers

Our network of speakers are eminent, leading figures who are specifically nominated by their peers or invited to participate given their fantastic contribution, expertise and influence in their field or industry.  We work with partners, institutions and existing speakers to maintain this special network of figures through their recommendations and invitations. These are figures who hope that by sharing their wisdom and insights as individuals at top of their profession they can spark imagination, encourage, inspire and broaden horizons for young people of all backgrounds. To find out how we place speakers with schools, please see our How it Works page for the full details.

Have you been contacted by one of our partners or someone in the network about becoming a speaker? Contact us here.
