Speaker Registration Form

As we work with schools and children, speakers should notify us directly if any point there is any reason to pause participation due to professional or personal circumstances that might potentially cause reputational or safeguarding concerns. Please read the below carefully and confirm all points:

This is to let schools quickly know who you are on our website e.g. CEO of Aviva Group, Journalist & Presenter for ITV, Former Diplomat, Microbiologist & Academic.

Please provide a short biography below to go on the S4S website, so schools can see who supports the charity and learn more about a speaker should they be paired for an event. (min. 100 words)

Schools love to thank speakers for their support and so do we. Please provide your twitter profile URL or “@” handle so we can include it on your profile and to give you the public recognition you deserve!

Please list any links you would like to appear on your profile page on our websites, such as a link to your company biography, LinkedIn profile, Instagram, blog or a recent publication.

If you have a photograph you would like to include in your profile, please supply here. To make sure it shows up well, please ensure it is at least 250 x 250 pixels. If you have any issues uploading or hit the size limit please feel free to email to info@speakers4schools.org.

This section helps us narrow to schools that would best fit your preferences and interests before getting in touch with you about an event. This information is not put online with your profile or shared with schools.
Preferred locations for a Talk

Since speakers donate their time and travel, we endeavour to set up events within areas you are already based or are happy to travel to where possible. We will filter and prioritise school requests to match these areas, and check with you/your office if we have suggestions further afield. Feel free to include those regions you both occasionally visit (e.g. for friends, family, work trips) and those which you are based (e.g. office, home) and/or those locations en-route that might work for finding a school. We have a significant shortage of speakers in the North East, rural North West and East Midlands. If there will be any possibility of co-ordinating a talk with travel plans to these regions, please let us know. Please list at least two locations.

Please let us know more about your ability to travel within these locations or any further preferences on areas (i.e. “I am based in London, but have annual conferences at the University of Manchester so could do a talk there in the Spring.”):
Topic Guideline for the talk

The topic areas below both relate to your area of expertise, as well as the potential topic of the talk itself, but are used a general guideline when pairing you with a school. You/your office will be directly in touch with the school and should tailor the particular focus of the event based on their students’ needs and your preferences. As a note, these are non-curriculum specific talks. They are a chance for a speaker to share their personal insights and background to more broadly inform and motivate students.
Please select the topic(s) most relevant for you below:
