Need a speaker for your next event?

Since the Entrepreneurs’ Forum was launched back in 2002 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 guest speakers and make introductions, so we've pulled together a list of some of the people who've impressed our members the most 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 (or two) and contact steven@entrepreneursforum.net or fill out our quick form with your event details. We'll see what we can do!
