What is Speakezee?
Speakezee is the world's largest searchable database of 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.
Invitations that come with a speaker's fee are subject to a 20% commission charge.
If you are a state school, then please indicate this in your invitation to a speaker. There is no charge for using this service. If you are an independent school, then please visit Speakezee Schools (http://www.speakezeeschools.org/) which provides information about our fees for a curated service that supports our independent state school partnerships.
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 Speakezee admin team will review the request and forward to the speaker.
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 admin[at]speakezee.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.
