Most Popular Speaking Topics

We often get asked what is the most popular speaking topic we get enquiries for.

To mark the end of 2023, we have looked through all the speaker bookings and enquiries we have had and shortlisted the top 5 subjects we get enquiries for – with an honorary mention of two subjects that have been on the rise in the last year.

The list is not in any particular order but be interesting to see whether this changes in 2024. We hope you find this interesting.

Most Requested Speaking Topics

Diversity and Inclusion

More and more organisations have been looking to hear diverse perspectives on how businesses can do better at ensuring a more inclusive and diverse workforce. With Pride Month, Black History Month, and Disability Awareness events, it has been a very popular area we get requests on.

Speakers such as Winston Clements, Jackie Handy, Matt Ellison, Anne Wafula Strike (pictured), and Donna Fraser are just a few speakers we have worked with this year.

High Performance/Building High-Performing Teams

From sales kick-off events, and clients bringing their remote teams together for the first time in a while, to organisations merging two or more companies there has been a constant thread of enquiries wanting a speaker on creating high-performing teams.

Speakers such as Martin Robert Hall (pictured), Richard West, Phil Olley, and Penny Mallory are just a few of the speakers who cover the subject.

Mental Health

Anthony Bennett speaker bookingHelping staff with their mental health, how to avoid burnout, managing stress, and having a positive mindset  – the modern ways of living and working have seen a rise in people struggling with their mental health.

Katie Maycock, Andrew Pain, Sue Firth, Anthony Bennett (pictured), and Dan Keeley have all proved popular choices of speakers.


Dealing with change, managing change, and how you create change again have all been topics we had enquiries on.

We work with speakers who talk about their own personal experiences of change such as Darren Edwards and Marc Convey (pictured) and those who offer insights into change they helped to manage or instil in their work such as Richard Gerver, Garrett Emmerson, and Maxine Hulme.  

Technology & AI & Innovation

Last year there was great interest in the Metaverse – this year there has been a lot of interest in AI and chatgpt and how it will affect business and what might be coming next around the corner.

To explain all of this the likes of James Poulter (pictured) and Sina Kahen have been speaking on the subject. Sitting alongside this subject has been cybersecurity and both Alex Wood and Charlie McMurdie have been speaking for us this year on the subject.

On top of these, the other two subjects which we have seen more interest in this year are-

Growth Mindset

A Growth Mindset is an approach to life in which an individual believes that their talents, intelligence, and abilities can be developed further. They believe that while people have inherent qualities and traits, success comes from constant personal development.

Sophie Bennett (pictured), Anna Hemmings, and Danny Crates all cover this area

Psychological Safety

Psychological safety is the belief people will not be punished or humiliated for speaking up with ideas, questions, concerns, or mistakes. In team environments, it is the expectation held by members of that team that teammates will not embarrass, or punish them for sharing ideas, taking risks, or giving feedback.

Mark Denton, Anj Handa, and Winston Clements have all covered this topic

I hope this is of some interest and we look forward to seeing what may prove popular in 2024.


We have worked with Matthew for many years and will continue to do so. His knowledge of the Speaker Market and ability to interpret our clients requirements is quite exceptional.

He is incredibly thorough in his approach and always goes that extra mile to ensure everything is exactly as required.

I am always happy working with Matthew, he has great credibility, he is very diverse in his ability to make things happen.

Matthew Fisher and I have worked together for many number of years. I have always found Matt to be honest, good natured and willing to work hard always carefully selecting the best appearances to suit my personality and lifestyle. The work Matthew has delivered for me over the years has varied from schools, colleges, attending film premiers, guest speaking  to name a few all of which I have lots of memories and thoroughly enjoyed.
