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

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. Professor Ian Maber

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

Thank you SpeakerNet and thank you for all you do. I've had nearly 50 talk enquiries via SpeakerNet since 2020. Keep up the great work! David Ramsden MBE

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 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

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

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 Short

Lottie Dale gave an excellent talk this afternoon on 'Treading the Wards - A Nurse's Tale' to our Probus group so I would like to report our appreciation. 'Thank you for your talk, today, Lottie. Brilliant! Well presented, some entertaining stories and a reflection on days long gone. Great! Lottie Dale

I just wanted to say thankyou for making the connection of speakers to events possible. I’ve had several enquiries already and now have a couple of firm opportunities booked into my diary – all as a direct result of Speakernet! Anon

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
