WHO WE ARE
The Speakers Collective is a Social Enterprise bringing together some of the UK’s leading campaigners and speakers on a range of issues fundamental to society - including mental health, suicide prevention, sexuality and gender.
Speakers Collective members are experienced professionals, the majority speaking from lived experience. They can provide a variety of services from keynote speeches, lunch and learns, half-day and full day workshops and consultancy. They are passionate about ending stigma.
We provide a community of support for those who work alone, share their lived experience and discuss social issues within a range of settings. We do this by meeting weekly (virtually) and providing training, networking and opportunities for collaboration.
training and mentoring
We are committed to supporting the next generation of speakers and provide mentoring and support for new members.
safety and quality
We recognise that many schools, corporate and third sector organisations look for outside speakers on these topics, but often don’t know how to assure safety and quality. All our speakers are regularly peer-reviewed, learn and work collaboratively and have signed up to their own charter of best practice.
The aim of the Speakers Collective is twofold:
1. To create a community of support for those who work alone, sharing their lived experience within business, education and public sector settings.
2. To ensure that those seeking speakers can be confident that our members will speak with integrity and professionalism, in line with the Speaker Collective Pledge.
