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.

“Dan’s ability to deliver key messages on resilience, motivation and life planning were received exceptionally well, especially as many of our young people either suffer or have suffered in these areas in the current climate. I cannot recommend Dan as a speaker enough. The feedback and response that I have received from Dan’s guest speaker appearance has been nothing short of phenomenal.”
“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.”
“Lauren Currie is a great storyteller… her passion is not only engaging but also completely infectious and inspirational. She loves design and making things better as much as tartan and the colour red… this is not an exaggeration.”
“Mollie Hughes was our speaker for International Women’s Day 2021 and she was absolutely perfect. Hugely inspiring, motivational and brave, as well as friendly, down-to-earth and an excellent speaker. Her presentation was awesome, and the themes of coping with isolation, creating a positive mindset and motivating yourself really resonated with our colleagues. It was a true privilege to hear about her adventures first-hand.”
"Sally’s story is startling in its impact"
