2024 Shortlist Announcement

What are The Speaker Awards?

The Speaker Awards are our way of celebrating the talents of top class speakers who know how to engage and inspire people, whether online or face-to-face.

We created these awards to give a well-deserved standing ovation to those who work hard to share their knowledge and stories, making a real impact on their audiences.

It's not just an awards ceremony; it's a chance for speakers to connect, share experiences, and grow together in their craft, fostering a supportive community that values the art of speaking.

Who is The Speaker Awards for?

The Speaker Awards are all about celebrating excellence in speaking.

They're designed for speakers who stand out in their field, showcasing exceptional skills and delivering messages that truly resonate with their audience.

No matter your background or expertise, if you strive for excellence and impact in your speaking, these awards are for you.

It's our way of recognising and honouring those who elevate the art of speaking to new heights, inspiring others to do the same.
