Seasons Greetings from Great British Speakers! And a look back at 2020

19th Dec 2020
Happy Christmas from Great British Speakers


It’s been a year unlike any other and for many of those in the events industry an absolutely cataclysmic one.

Who would have foreseen when we were on our stand at Confex ’20, held for the first time at EXCEL London that days later it would start to take shape as the Nightingale hospital on the very spot we were standing in?

Sadly for obvious reason we couldn’t attend two other shows we normally exhibit at, CHS Leeds and Venues and Events live, but we really hope to be back there and meet you in person as soon as it’s safe.

Continued investment in a challenging climate…

Faced with many cancellations and postponed events in true Great British Speakers style we never considered stepping back or even standing still, we went ahead and totally rebuilt the website adding more features along the way.

We’ve taken time to ensure we’ve included all the features you’d need to get just the right talent for your project. This has been a major ground-up rebuild and redesign where we’ve listened to clients and used the experience we’ve gained over the last two years to create something really special.  

You can create your own shortlist together to share with colleagues and clients as you go.

We’ve not just added more specialists in areas such as diversity, leadership, the environment, tech, travel and construction, you can now find them more easily with our powerful search tools to get just the right person from your project.

Great New Talent!
