Welcome to the Hope Conference

The Hope Conference is built around you and will be extremely collaborative for everyone attending.  Our 2021 programme included the speakers Jonny Benjamin MBE, Jake Mills, Heidi Stewart and Steve Gilbert OBE.

The event is hosted in Birmingham and our next Hope Conference will be on Friday 11 November  2022 by The Speakers Collective, a social enterprise designed to facilitate important conversations, Chasing The Stigma, a national mental health charity.


Our 2021 Hope Conference was sponsored by BHSF a not-for-profit health & wellbeing provider, helping to keep employees physically, mentally & financially healthy.

We would love for you to join us in person and be part of our next Hope Conference in 2022 creating a really inspiring conference.
