Awareness Days

Awareness days / weeks / months do what they say on the tin. Raise awareness!

Addressing these topics as an organisation shows how much you care and provides a powerful way to kick start a conversation.

Of course these subjects should not only be spoken about and focused on purely when its an awareness day.

We have some suggestions for talks relating to awareness days that our experts are particularly knowledgeable about and that really speak to us.

Click on the month below and then there is a link to outlines for different talks.

If you have other ideas or something very specific in mind to mark an awareness day, we are always open to creating more bespoke content.
