Our team here at Speakers Corner has the privilege of establishing strong, personal relationships with the individuals we represent. Working closely with our speakers to ensure that everything goes smoothly at an event - from the consultation and booking stage, to the briefing and logistics in the lead-up - it's no surprise that we've accrued a wealth of in-depth knowledge about them, their speaking topics and how they like to operate.
This month, we've rounded up a selection of our speakers who hail from the intriguing world of security and risk: from the tech-savvy cybersecurity experts who work behind-the-screens to keep us safe, to the mathematically-minded geniuses adept at calculating risks for businesses, not to mention the futurists and trend forecasters who examine the uncertainty caused by various global events in order to predict what might happen next.
Check out the below as a taster of the 6000 speakers and artists we represent in total (with 1000 listed on our website), and for more information, call or email us - we love to chat!
Caspar Berry - the professional poker player
No stranger to risk, Caspar Berry is a professional poker player and entrepreneur, who lays out the odds for businesses. Just like his background, his take on the subject is unique, insightful and refreshing.

Maxine de Brunner - the Senior Met Police Officer
The individual behind the UK's largest counter-terrorism exercise, Maxine de Brunner was one of the Met Police Service’s most senior officers. Rising through the ranks of a highly pressured working environment, she led one of the most historically significant change programmes to the policing service across London. Well-placed to discuss cybercrime, and the transformational change within organisations needed in light of this, she is recommended by Accounts Manager Verity.
Josh Klein - the hacker
Who better to advise on protection against hackers than someone who used to be one? Innovation, creativity and change are the products of Josh Klein’s take on hacking – the ideological and technical process of taking something apart and putting it back together – but better. When he's not busy hacking everything, Josh takes to the stage as an inspirational keynote speaker - and Head of Marketing Charlotte is a fan!
