Keynoteworthy is a platform connecting diverse thinkers and speakers with event organisers. We believe representation on stage matters because impact does not end on stage – it’s where it begins.

Quite often, we’re seeing the same old line-up of speakers, that is, celebrities, cheesy motivational speakers and an all-male line-up just to name a few. People need fresh ideas and perspectives. That’s why we go to events and conferences right?

So, to prevent history from repeating itself, Keynoteworthy was created to make it easier to introduce great speakers to the world. We feature authentic speakers – both emerging and experienced who are passionate and ready to challenge your ideas.

If you’re an event organiser needing help to curate your line-up, get in touch to see how we can help. Otherwise browse our directory of diverse keynote speakers

Cathy Ngo

Founder + CEO

I believe everyone – of all genders, sexualities, religions, ethnicity, abilities, and backgrounds – should be able to attend an event, look up on stage, and see someone giving a talk on stage that looks like them, and think ‘that could be me’.

In a world where it’s about who you know, I found event organisers were selecting the same line-up of speakers. This meant you got the same perspectives only repackaged differently. Frustrated with the lack of balanced representation at events, I founded Keynoteworthy as a way to amplify the voices of  the ‘everyday speaker’. There is no shortage of talent out there, so I wanted to make it easier for event managers to find amazing people.

I was disappointed to find that the traditional speaker agency and bureau tended to only feature celebrities and professional speakers (which is why we’re seeing the same people). And so, next minute, (with lots of coffee and wine), I launched Keynoteworthy on the kitchen bench.

Whether you’re an event organiser, a speaker or someone who just wants to make events more inclusive, I hope you find this website a wonderful resource.
