New speakers’ agency getting ready for launch


A new intelligent speakers’ agency is launching this week with a list of 40 respected speakers.


Hire Intelligence – which was set up by Patrick Walsh and Clare Conville -  said that its speakers would convey complex ideas in an accessible and entertaining way.


Those on the agency’s books already include Professor Richard Wiseman, who has been lecturing and popularising science for years; Carl Honoré, lifestyle guru from the Slowness Movement; the New York Times' bestselling historian Andrea Wulf and Professor Jim al-Khalili, who has become a familiar face on the BBC and from this October will be presenting Radio 4’s new flagship science programme.


The agency launches tomorrow (28 June). For more information email
