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."
"Just wanted to say a big thanks to Laura for her great workshop. It was good fun, she had really high energy and was the perfect fit for our culture internally! Laura kept the session upbeat and interactive and we have had really good feedback so far. Keep up the awesomeness!"
"Cor's message lands within your soul on every possible level. I have the pleasure to watch Cor time and time again hold a room, hold every person within the palm of her hand. It changes where people operate from as human beings. I am delighted and honoured that Cor is part of the Reach Your Peak event and every time she presents we have no dry eyes in the room. How Cor uses her life experience is nothing short of inspirational – it's real, it's raw and it's heart wrenching, but makes you feel truly amazing and aware that your life has to have purpose and meaning to it."
“Sincere thanks for delivering a truly inspirational speech at our annual conference. Many colleagues have remarked on how touched they were by your words and felt your speech enhanced and championed the theme of positive partnerships perfectly: it was a wonderful end to the first day.”
“I would like to thank you for contributing your passion, insights and experience as a speaker at the Global UBS Philanthropy Forum in Singapore where we looked into the promise of a collaborative approach to tackling social change. Your engagement was invaluable and was received very positively by the audience. The feedback on the Forum, both from participants and UBS colleagues, has also been highly positive."
