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.

Mental Health Awareness Week runs from the 15th to 21st of May and is hosted by the Mental Health Foundation.
The awareness day provides a fantastic opportunity for UK-business and event organises to raise awareness and focus on helping their employees and audience adopt good mental well-being, and provide them with a safe space to discuss mental health challenges.
Mental Health Awareness Week Facts!
Over the two decades it has been running, themes have included the connections between mental health and nature, kindness, loneliness, sleep and body image.
To really understand why good mental health in the workplace is important, we can take a look at some key stats:
At Great British Speakers, we are proud to be working alongside a team of professional mental health and wellbeing speakers who would be perfect for your next mental health event. They all have personal and/or professional reasons why mental health and well-being is such an important conversation to have.
It is believed that before the COVID pandemic, one-in-eight people suffered from some form of mental health issue. However, afterwards, that figure is said to have risen by a quarter, a rise that is still present today thanks to the cost-of-living crisis, limited NHS provisions, global wars and inequality.
If you are running an event for Mental Health Awareness Week, or you’re just interested in boosting your employee’s mental health and well-being, then the Great British Speakers team is here to help.
Anna Williamson is an experienced TV presenter and radio broadcaster, but behind closed doors, she suffered from an almost crippling battle with her mental health. Her experience with Generalised Anxiety Disorder and post-natal depression, and her recovery, she realised that there is still a massive stigma around poor mental health and well-being.
As a result of this, she was determined to use her own experiences to help others and became an official ambassador for MIND, a counsellor and life coach, and achieved Master NLP Practitioner status.

As reported by MIND, approximately one in every four people will experience a mental health problem in a year, with one in six reporting one every single week. Due to worries about employment, money and global inequalities, this figure is set to rise, and it won’t be long before we can all say we know someone suffering. This is why it is so vital to get everyone educated and talking about their mental health. By hiring a professional and dedicated mental well-being speaker, you can rest assured your employees will be left with the tools of the trade to support their own, and their colleagues, mental health.
Thanks for using the Great British Speakers Awareness Days Calendar to help you find the best speaker for your upcoming event.
