Bringing you the latest news about our speakers, events, workshops and lots more.
As the school holidays approach and many of us look forward to a break (albeit maybe in the UK) this is a roundup of our July 2021 Speaker News. This month we welcome new speakers Oscar O’Connor and Dr Stephen Simpson to our website, have news of some workshops run by Anj Handa, a new showreel from Anna Hemmings, and some podcasts ideas to listen to including those featuring Gary Hibberd, Enda O’Doherty, and Bennett Arron.
Over the last few months, we have been fortunate enough to work with a number of speakers on the issue of cybersecurity. As remote working is likely to stay, in some part, for many of us, it is a time to be even more mindful of what potential threats we may face online.
If you are planning an event and looking to learn more cybersecurity these are just a few of the speakers we work with that might be of interest.
Our July 2021 Book of the Month is “Thirteen Lessons that Saved Thirteen Lives: the Thai Cave Rescue” by Inspirational Speaker and one of the cave divers involved in the rescue, John Volanthen.
James Poulter, a leading thought leader and keynote speaker on the future of work, voice technology, and conversational artificial intelligence, and the team at Vixen Labs are proud to announce the launch of their Voice Consumer Index 2021. This is the most comprehensive study of US, UK, and German voice users to date across smart speakers, mobile, and the web and dives deep into behaviours and attitudes.
Whilst it is exciting to hear that live events could be returning in the near future and enquiries are coming in, many of the online events enquiries we receive are still very short notice and sometimes fall within a week or less. In the past few weeks, I am pleased to say we have even booked a few speakers with less than 24 hours’ notice. Will this short notice lead time remain? Is this going to be the new norm?
Whilst the easing of lockdown has been pushed back a month, we have seen a noticeable rise in enquiries about the return to the office and what might be different and how employers can find ways to support their team through this transition. These are just a few of the speakers we work with that might be able to help and provide advice and support for you and your teams as we move forward to a new way of working. We have also included a few speakers who offer different insights into the return to the office – including how to maintain a culture of innovation and even how fashion may have changed in post-lockdown.
This is our June 2021 speaker news round-up featuring this month updated speech topics from Rohit Talwar, feedback on speakers including Dr. Beth Healey, Anthony Bennett, and JJ Chalmers, we welcome inspirational speaker Andrew Pain and Fashion Stylist Gemma Sheppard to our website and have news on Alison Edgar’s new book.

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.
