Speakers Corner Connects Virtual Showcase Programme for 2021

For a history graduate I’m always looking forward – tomorrow never dies right?

The Speakers Corner Connects Showcase Series has been curated to show event organisers how the power of the spoken word can be delivered via a virtual platform during social distancing measures. It’s never been more important to be inspired by some of the greatest humans to have walked this planet.

Last year we organised over 10 incredible events (which you can view here) and we're excited to be able to share with you our exciting plans for 2021.

Each month will have a virtual showcase dedicated to a subject matter which will enhance our learning, skill development, career progression, and provide the inspiration to overcome whatever challenges this year has in store!

Every virtual showcase is free to attend - but we do have a maximum capacity of 500 attendees per event. We look forward to sharing some incredible moments with you in 2021!

Thursday 22nd April at 3PM: How Will We Live and Work Post-Pandemic


When our audience logs onto this virtual masterclass it’ll have more than a year since the first national lockdown was announced in the UK. The pandemic has created a seismic change in how we live and work, but as the vaccine rollout gathers pace, we’re now looking forwards with optimism.

The pandemic arrived during a period of global change. The UK has left the EU and there is a new US President, two big changes which will affect the business community we move into a post-pandemic world.

Our virtual masterclass will provide an opportunity for our audience to hear from three speakers, each with a different perspective, discussing the future of how we live and work. There are sure to be plenty of questions so make sure to stay to the end where our panel will convene for a Q&A session.

Thursday 20th May at 3PM: A year on from Black Lives Matter…what’s changed? 

By the time this virtual showcase takes place, it will have been almost been a year since the death of George Floyd sparked renewed Black Lives Matter protests across the globe. The protests sparked a wave of brands championing the merits of diversity, but 12 months on and with Pride taking place in June, it is the perfect time to discuss the progress made and the steps we need to take to reap the rewards of a truly diverse and inclusive society.

Our expert speaker line-up are going to tackle crucial issues, examining whether we’ve become a more tolerant and diverse world, have the promises made by brands been reflected within their boardrooms, and the impact the pandemic has had on diversity within society.
