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.

An event every year that begins at 12:00 am on day 8 of March, repeating indefinitely
International Women’s Day (IMD) falls on the 8th of March each year, and the theme of this year’s event (2023) is #EmbraceEquality.
IWD is a time to celebrate the achievements of women throughout history and in modern society; the day is embraced globally to great success. The day also looks into how we can work together to create a more gender-equal workplace, free of gender bias, stereotypes and discrimination; how we can create an environment diverse and inclusive, where differences are celebrated, valued and excepted.
Last year, the theme of International Women’s Day was #BreakTheBias – a global call to action to fight discrimination. This year’s #EmbraceEquality theme is all about celebrating diversity and embracing our differences, within the workplace and beyond…
Since we launched Great British Speakers it’s been really encouraging to see just how influential our inspirational female talents have been to our clients, and to the success as a speakers bureau. From day one we’ve been fortunate enough to be able to offer household names – such as Nigella Lawson, Kirstie Allsopp, Anna Richardson, Princess Michael of Kent and Mary Berry – to our clients. As we have grown, we’ve introduced more extraordinary female talents to our teams, such as the founder of the Women’s Equality Party Sandi Toksvig, tech entrepreneur Alex Depledge, property travel icon Carol Smillie and Olympian Dame Kelly Holmes to name a few.
Mandy Hickson is without a doubt one of the most popular inspirational females on the speaking circuit here in the UK. Mandy was the only female pilot on her Front Line Tornado Squadron for the Royal Air Force and she has operated from some of the world’s most hostile environments, including patrolling the ‘No Fly’ zone over Iraq. She demonstrates only too well the importance of remaining calm under pressure and leading, quite literally, from the front, in order to get the best from herself and her team and she can help you achieve this within your organisation.
