Awards Hosts Speakers

The MC makes all the difference between an awards evening and a fantastic awards evening. Empathy, humour, timing, insight, intelligence, personality – that’s all you need to be a great awards host.

Specialist Speakers will be sponsoring awards throughout 2018. As a speaker bureau we were delighted to sponsor the Chartered Institute of Public Relations Excellence Awards at the HAC Showground, London in June. And we are delighted to sponsor CIPR Pride Awards in nine UK cities and to be a supporter of the UK Sponsorship Awards at the London Marriott in March 2018.
