our speakers

At Utopia we endeavour to drive forward thought leadership in purpose, inclusion, creativity and entrepreneurialism every day. And because of this we meet extraordinary people who are on the same journey and want to share their thoughts, experiences and ideas too. So we decided to curate a speaker offering made up of people who evoke empathy, curiosity, inspiration and change. You can check them out below. If you’d like to book any of our speakers, or just find out a little bit more, please contact Tolu Farinto and he will be happy to help.
