READ Speakers

At READ, we believe there is still a thirst to hear people speaking live about their new ideas, inspirational stories, real-life adventures and the incredible ways they might have dealt with unexpected adversity. It gives audiences the chance to experience the story in close proximity and to be able to delve further with questions and debate. As well as promoting non-fiction titles across a range of subject areas via traditional PR methods, we also work with authors and anyone with a story to tell to get them in front of a live audience to deliver their talk.
