Running throughout June and July 2022, we will be hosting a series of Broadcasts and Virtual Talks with eminent leaders who are leading the charge for early technology adoption. These talks to young people will showcase the breadth of roles and career choices that the technology-enabled workplace of the future can offer.


Our Predict Virtual Talks are between one speaker and one school using a video calling platform. We recommend that Speakers for Schools Virtual Talks are between 40mins and one hour long. A Virtual Talk can take many formats. However, we have found that there are two main formats to be considered for an impactful talk – either a talk followed by a Q&A session or an interview format.

Broadcasts take place during the school day and outside of the school day (timings of broadcasts change in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure we are best able to support young people). Young people will not be required to download apps or software to access events. There will be no login to access broadcasts.


Information and access information about upcoming talks will be added to this page ahead of the events and sent to the Speakers for Schools’ network via email. We will also be sharing news of upcoming speakers and talks on our social media.
