Speaker Updates - September 2022

September is always a busy month for us – but this one tops the chart! 
We have started working with lots of new speakers (new to us, not new to the world of speaking!) which means I get to do what brings me joy – speak to lots of inspirational people and find the perfect events for them to speak at.

I have been growing our connections with speaker coaches, videographers and showreel creators, so that we can help speakers – either new to the market, or speakers looking to ‘level up’ as and when they need this.
