Need a speaker for your next event?

Since the Entrepreneurs’ Forum launched back in 2003 we’ve had many brilliant guest speakers entertain, inspire and educate our region’s entrepreneurs.

We’ve built up a great reputation (even if we do say so ourselves!) and often get asked to recommend speakers and make introductions, so we've pulled together a list of the people who've most impressed our members over the years.

If you've got an event that needs an inspirational speaker, we'd be happy to try and help. Take a look through our recommendations, pick out a speaker and contact kerry@entrepreneursforum.net or fill out our quick form with your event details. We'll see what we can do!
