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.

“In our work as a charitable foundation, one of our most pressing challenges is to help ourselves and others think more systemically about issues.
Lauren Currie is the most fantastic guide to creating the sort of voice rich culture that is an absolute prerequisite to doing so. She has a warm, original and practical take on how to get going on these areas. We really couldn’t recommend her more highly.”
"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!"
"Kenton’s achievements are truly exceptional. He can literally and metaphorically get your team to climb to new heights! An outstanding motivational speaker."
"Cor Hutton has been my first choice inspirational speaker for the last 2 years on a seminar I run on gender diversity. It is a session that aims to motivate and educate my delegates in equal measure and Cor’s talk is one of the most inspirational and motivational stories I’ve heard and the perfect way to close my event. Cor is passionate, humble and heart-warming but delivers her talk with ambition and humour. The reaction she receives to her story is lovely to see as delegates are left with a smile (sometimes a tear) and a whole lot of admiration. I would absolutely recommend Cor as a speaker at any event. She is a true inspiration of what grit and determination can achieve."
"Nathan came to speak with our members at NED'S Club and had the room enthralled, both with his stories and incredible imagery. We look forward to having him back again one day."
