The Don’t Panic Speaker Bureau specialises in motivational speakers, award hosts, performers and inspirational conference speakers for a range of events for the public sector and corporate industries.

Awards hosts bring life and soul into your ceremony – they engage with the audience, keep them entertained throughout the awards presentation, and make sure everything goes to plan whilst reading from a personalised script. Performers will add extra entertainment value to your event – from poets to DJs to Comedians. We have incredible talent on offer to take your event to the next level and add that ‘something special’ touch.

A skilled presenter or conference speaker can captivate an audience, inspire delegates and provide the necessary insights through a skilled and concise presentation. Choosing the right presenter or speaker gives your event the credibility it deserves and ensures your key themes or messages are at the forefront of your event, whilst keeping the audience engaged.

So what makes the Don’t Panic Speaker Bureau different?

As event organisers ourselves, we at Don’t Panic understand the pressures and challenges of managing an event and working with motivational speakers, so we’ll provide a hassle-free, efficient and professional service to deliver great quality content for your event. From your initial enquiry, we’ll carefully manage every aspect of the speaker booking; checking availability, negotiating fees, issuing contracts, managing accommodation, catering to travel requests and creation of briefing notes. The Don’t Panic Speaker Bureau takes the weight off your shoulders and enables you to give the rest of your event the attention it deserves.

Loved hosting again .. if it’s virtual for now so be it. But let’s get events back soon as .. god knows we need a room full of people, laughter and energy once more .. Amen to that 🙏

Hold Still. This is the most moving project I have been involved in. 100 photographs from 31,000 were chosen for this Exhibition at The National Portrait Gallery which launches online today. "Hold Still" is a portrait of our nation. Take a look.

We're heartbroken to hear about the passing of Zak Edwards. He was an inspiring member of the speaker bureau and will be missed.

Sending love to all his family and friends at this hard time.

An absolutely incredible BBC Imagine documentary! Well done @lemnsissay, @jorourke72 and everyone involved! If you missed it, you can catch-up on @BBCiPlayer now!
