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 6 of February, repeating indefinitely
Race Equality Week is an annual event across the UK that unites thousands of individuals and businesses alike to address the issues concerning race equality, diversity and inclusion in the workplace. Race Equality Week 2023 falls from the 6th to the 12th of February, with the theme – ‘It’s Everyone’s Business’.
The first Race Equality Week took place in 2021 following the Black Lives Matter Movement and the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on ethnic minority communities. The aim is to turn talk into action and implement equality solutions in UK businesses.
Here at Great British Speakers, we have an array of popular speakers ready to speak about why Race Equality Week matters to them. Their openness and honesty about their own race and equality issues aim to drive more positive, diverse workplaces.
Appearing in the Big Issue’s Top 100 Changemakers of 2021, Alexandra Wilson is a barrister specialising in family law, an author and a diversity campaigner. She first came to public attention when she spoke about how she was mistaken for a defendant rather than the barrister three times on the same day in court; “I don’t expect to have to constantly justify my existence at work.”
Since experiencing racial prejudice in court, she has made it her mission to challenge discrimination in the legal system. She released her critically acclaimed book In Black and White: A Young Barrister’s Story of Race and Class in a Broken Justice System in 2020 which explores her journey into the profession, discusses what happens if you have an openly racist judge, and portrays a justice system in which a disproportionately large number of black people are convicted.
