About Speaker Buzz
We believe that in today’s challenging world, organisations and their people need more support than ever to develop and maintain morale, clarity of purpose, resilience and productivity.
Our handpicked speakers talk passionately and inspirationally about today’s most relevant topics – from workplace wellbeing and leadership for remote teams and mental health in our always-on digital culture, to urgent challenges around diversity, inclusion, social impact and the environment.
We also believe that bringing about change takes time.
While a one-off motivational talk is hugely effective, we work closely with our clients to create bespoke support programmes that address long-term challenges and objectives to deliver lasting change.

"Mollie Hughes was simply fantastic! The content was brilliant, it was interesting to hear her motivational mantras and what she has had to overcome, whilst on the expeditions particularly but also coping with down time afterwards and during fundraising.
The presentation was excellent, the audience enjoyed the footage and it worked really well over Zoom. Many attendees had family members listening in the background knowing that they would be interested … a benefit of working from home."
"Cal Major is a such a brilliant speaker. She is articulate, intelligent and passionate about her subject but delivers it in a relatable and engaging way. Her core message around plastic pollution is so key across all sectors, but she also brings messages around resilience, endurance, team work and goal setting. I would thoroughly recommend her as a speaker."
"Laura is the best speaker I have ever been lucky enough to listen to. For the 90 mins at the conference, my focus didn't waiver once, I didn't want it to end!"
“Lauren Currie brought real honesty and humility to the conversation which made a mark on us all.”
"We had the pleasure of having Rupal join us at ZX Venutures for a workshop on 'finding your voice' surrounding International Women's Day. The inspiring and relatable conversation addressed a major challenge many of us face at different points in our lives - being our authentic selves. The level of depth, life experience and insight that Rupal brought to the conversation left our team with much to reflect on as we manage our lives and careers. Thank you for an engaging and memorable session."
