Academic & Author Speakers

Academics generally work within a university, combining research, teaching, publishing journals and administrative duties. Academics are the life-blood of a university, without whom the institution would not exist. They dedicate their lives to study and become experts in their chosen field. Their work in research provides enormous benefits to society and drives continual advancements.

All the major breakthroughs in technology, medicine and science that we hear about are a result of the work conducted by academics in collaboration with industry and government.

There is nobody better qualified to speak on a particular subject than an academic and that’s what makes them a great speaker choice for event planners. Book one of our academic speakers to your next event and let your audience benefit from learning the latest discoveries and advances being made today.
