Great Stories + Fantastic Causes

SpeakerNet is your index to great UK public speakers

Tasked with the problem of finding a speaker or entertainment for an upcoming meeting or event? SpeakerNet is here to help. With our index of UK wide speakers, both charitable and paid, plus all kinds of after-dinner entertainers, you are sure to find someone to fit the bill.

Our filters and search tools make it easy for speaker-finders to engage just the right person for their next event.

SpeakerNet is not an agent. We are an introduction service. Once you are in communications with a speaker or entertainer all the arrangements are between you. All we ask is that you report back your experience to help others in the future

All sorts of clubs and associations can use SpeakerNet; U3A, Rotary, Inner Wheel, 41 Club, Womens Institute etc.

Our listed public speakers cover a wide range of topics such as History, Sport, Life Skills, Science, Hobbies and Travel. Some of our speakers charge a fee, some just expenses and some would like support for their Charities

SpeakerNet is free to use, however you may come across the occasional advert. In addition, some speakers pay a little extra to bring their listing to your attention.

Kind Words

SpeakerNet has been of the primary sources of my many talk bookings and by far the best publicity online platform through which to advertise talks. I strongly recommend it for both speakers and speaker secretaries. Mark Lewis

SpeakerNet is a great way to get your name out there, and it's totally free! It's also a good way for groups to find and contact speakers in their area, with useful details such as cost, subjects offered, travel expenses and other requirements. All in all,a jolly good thing! Penny Wheat

I have found SpeakerNet the best site I have used, both as a speaker myself, I have had more enquiries from this site than all other sites put together and secondly as a Speaker Secretary for my local History Society, this site has been most useful in finding speakers. Harold Hoggarth

If you are looking for a Speaker then this is the Website for you. With self explanatory Tags and easily navigable pages it is simplicity itself to make the right choice of speaker for your function. As a speaker myself I have had a lot of enquiries from the website and would recommend other speakers list their talks here Graham Douglas Hayes

A big thank you to SpeakerNet. What a great service for speakers. I always recommend this website to speaker secretaries when I give talks around the country. If my fellow speakers do the same, it will be in all our interests. I can't thank SpeakerNet enough. A brilliant service! Graham George Short

It is always difficult to find a list of speakers on a variety of topics all in one place. SpeakerNet provides a simple and easy solution for both ‘speaker seekers’ and speakers. I have had many bookings through SpeakerNet, over the past few years and continue to do so. Ian Maber

In my experience is the one site for speakers and groups that really works! It is easy to use and opens up an Aladdin’s cave of entertaining and informative talks for anyone faced with the increasingly onerous task of speakers. I have gained several bookings via the site and made many new friends in groups across the country. Nick Dobson

What a great resource the SpeakerNet website is for both speakers and speaker finders. As a speaker I have had some really interesting engagements via the site. I would certainly recommend it as a place to be listed. Sandy Leong

The last two enquiries has led to two confirmed talks bookings for next year. Once again, thank you, for your splendid site. The talks I give have been very successful with many repeat bookings. The research for the talks takes me to all sorts of places and the people I meet there plus the audience members at my presentations certainly enrich my life. Mrs Frances Raftery

Speakernet provides a wonderfully efficient service within the public speaking community. For those of us who like the sound of our own voice, the system is so easy.We are in control of our own input; adding, amending and deleting whenever necessary. Speakernet is my shop window and has helped me to raise serious money for Rotary charities. A wonderful resource which is constantly expanding and updating. When people ask for a list of my talks, I just direct them to Malcolm Darroch
