We Are Spectrum

A young, bold Speaker Consultancy committed to matching the best corporate story-tellers to organisations that value real inclusion.

Whether you’re looking for a keynote speech from a pioneering business leader, a seminar with an academic specialist, a dazzling entertainer or dynamic event host, working with Spectrum means you’re choosing the first UK Speaker and Entertainment Agency dedicated to searching inclusively and bringing more diverse voices into the Corporate Events space.

Spectrum is powered by 15 years in the speaking and events industry, a huge network of business inclusion experts and a desire to widen the corporate speaking landscape with cutting-edge stories and an intentional approach.

We believe that true diversity isn’t a category or a tick-box, it’s a spectrum.

Our Mission

enlighten: we specialise in perspectives. Our roster of thought-leaders and entertainers has texture and includes Women, BIPOC, LGBTQ+, Differently Abled, Neurodivergent and Socially Disadvantaged Story-tellers who captivate audiences and spark discussion.

educate: for any event, on any subject. Our industry-leading speakers are figureheads in their fields – they inspire, motivate and inform audiences by sharing expertise and experience from a vast range of specialisms, and showcasing what makes real people colourful.

empower: as well as elevating diverse voices, our mission is to empower those running events to know that they can curate their speaker and entertainment programmes inclusively; we’re safe space for Event Planners who want to make their events more inclusive to have important conversations freely.

energise: speakers to get you talking. Producing a corporate event with rhythm demands variety – whether you’re looking for specialist insight, motivation or entertainment, the universally useful or the staggeringly specific, we shape audience experiences that always create conversations.
