If you’re organising an event in Yorkshire, we will help you find a suitable speaker. On this page you’ll find Yorkshire speakers who have made their name in business, politics, sport or entertainment. All were born or raised in England’s largest county. One became our first blind Cabinet Minister, another secured and led the most successful Olympics in modern history. Four are master wordsmiths – whether through poetry, journalism or stand-up comedy.

It’s impossible to produce a definitive list of the “10 best Yorkshire speakers.” There’s no public vote, no independent awards and it certainly has nothing to do with their fees! All we can usefully do is highlight our agents’ favourites and those who always generate positive feedback.
