Inspirational Speakers - September 2023

September tends to be the busiest month for us, as the summer holidays finish and clients look to get a jump on events for the next year.
With that in mind, all our staff made sure they had a lovely break over the summer and enjoyed well deserved downtime, ready to take on this month… and what a month it has been!

We have been working with new clients and speakers (some of which are below!) and even working on new and improved updates to the website, which will be ready in a week or so – watch this space!

Our multi-academy trust held an INSET day for 300 staff today and we booked a speaker through Inspirational Speakers Ltd. The service by this company was excellent from start to finish! The booking system, support up to the event and following it were brilliant. As an educator, my role is not usually to manage large events such as this and so I really valued the service provided to guide and reassure me during the preparation process. The speaker was excellent and really motivated the entire audience. I cannot recommend Inspirational Speakers Ltd highly enough. Thank you!
