At Great British Speakers, we’re here to help make your event a success. Using our awareness days calendar, you can easily plan ahead to ensure you secure the best speaker for your day.
Our corporate events calendar is also here to provide you with inspiration on ways you can help motivate your audience and/or employees this year.
Some of the biggest events on the Awareness Days calendar include International Women’s Day (March 8th) and Black History Month (October) – both of which have become pivotal events for raising awareness of equality, inclusion and diversity concerns within society, and within the workplace more specifically.
We also focus on the importance of Mental Health, with World Mental Health Day (10th October) and Mental Health Awareness Week (15th-21st May), as well as International Men’s Day (November 19th), which is a powerful reminder for men to take care of their own health and mental wellbeing.
We know, however, that there are many more important awareness days than those we’ve listed, and will continue to update our events calendar as often as possible to provide you with the latest events news and best topical speakers on the circuit. But no matter the event or occasion, our expert motivational and keynote speakers are here with key takeaways to ensure your event is one to remember.
So if you’re running an event this year and would like to book a speaker for the occasion, get in touch with our team at Great British Speakers.

Coinciding with Movember, International Men’s Day (IMD) – 19th November –International Men’s Day provides a platform to highlight men’s achievements and contributions to society, while also addressing the challenges they face. This observance aims to promote positive male role models, foster discussions on men’s health and well-being, and encourage conversations about gender equality and inclusivity.
By recognising International Men’s Day, we can create awareness and promote dialogue on issues that affect men in various aspects of life. It allows us to acknowledge their strengths, embrace diversity, and work towards creating a more equitable and supportive environment for all. Let us come together to celebrate the positive impact of men and address the issues that matter most to them on this significant occasion.
With ‘Toxic Masculinity‘ said to be one of the main reasons why men are less likely to seek medical advice, International Men’s Day (IMD) aims to promote a different narrative. It seeks to empower men, encouraging them to prioritize their well-being and feel assured when seeking support. By doing so, IMD equips men with valuable tools to become positive role models for future generations, fostering a healthier and more supportive environment for all.
Find an International Mens Day Speakers – Our International Men’s Day Speakers are here to offer men guidance and support, by providing an open space to discuss sensitive subjects, such as mental health and wellbeing, male-cancers/physical health, relationships and fatherhood, and gender and equality. The day is also in celebration of inspirational male role models, many of whom have shown true resilience and overcome great adversities to get to where they are today. Plus, it’s also an opportunity to appreciate male role models in business, and the many men who have made fantastic achievements in history and modern-day society.
It’s probably unfair to hero just one of our Inspiring International Mens Day Speakers, however, Roman has probably created the greatest waves of late within the media to highlight the issues:
Whilst best known for being a radio DJ and TV presenter, Roman Kemp’s work on male mental health, depression, anxiety and suicide is fast eclipsing his media career. In 2020, his friend and colleague Joe Lyons took his own life after silently battling with mental health difficulties. Shocked by this, Roman has made it his mission to ensure everyone – particularly men – is able to speak up about their problems and to seek help before it’s too late. He brought this to the mainstream through his BBC3 documentary Our Silent Emergency.
Since this sad time, Roman has spoken at universities, and companies about male mental health and suicide, and has teamed up with the mental health charity MIND to promote the importance of speaking out.
With the worrying statistics on male self-harm and suicide, it’s more vital than ever to ensure men are supported and they know that they don’t have to suffer in silence.
