What is Speakezee?
Speakezee is the world's largest searchable database of academic expert speakers.
At its heart is the desire to help speakers engage with their audience and to make it easier for organisers to find relevant experts to talk at their event, whatever the size.
It also allows speakers to showcase talks, share materials and collect evidence of impact from the audiences in the form of comments and discussion.
How does it work?
Speakers create a simple profile which focuses on subject expertise and speaking experience. The more complete the speaker profile, the more likely you will be contacted by an organiser.
List a talk you can give or have given in the past. Add materials you might want to share - papers, slides, videos or even a soundcloud podcast.
Event organisers can find and shortlist speakers using a quick and simple search. Once an organiser has found the perfect speakers they can send an invitation to speak at their event.
The best profiles will include recordings of previous speaking events.
If you don't find what you're looking for, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will see if we can find the right speaker for you.
Start a discussion
Audience members can leave comments, questions and feedback for individual talks. Speakers can respond to questions and audience members will be alerted if and when their questions are answered. It's the perfect way to start a discussion.
Promote your event
Event organisers can submit their event for promotion on Speakezee and benefit from the feedback and file sharing functionality. Contact the Speakezee events manager on "List Your Event"
