Join us for We Need to Talk Live!

Pearson, the world’s learning company, in partnership with I CAN, the children’s communication charity, invites you to join us for We Need to Talk Live!

We Need to Talk Live is a new platform where leading thinkers and influencers from the education, health, employment and charity sectors come together to make their mark through a series of thought-provoking speeches, highlighting how fundamental communication is to all aspects of life.

Our line-up of notable speakers and influencers will aim to inspire and provoke new thinking on the importance of communication and its impact on an individual's life outcomes and our wider community, with a particular focus on education, mental health, relationships and employment.

Speakers on the day include:

  • Carrie Grant | broadcaster and campaigner

  • Lord Karan Bilimoria | the founder and chairman of Cobra Beer, the Vice President of the CBI and an independent peer in the House of Lords

  • Felicity Gillespie | education advisor to the UK Department of Education

  • Richard Gerver | award-winning speaker, bestselling author and world-renowned thinker

  • Simon Bucknall | international speaker, coach and facilitator. I CAN ambassador.

The afternoon will conclude with a panel discussion chaired by Bob Reitemeier, I CAN's Chief Executive and the Head of Clinical Assessment at Pearson, Robert Reilly Craig. Lunch will be served and the event will close with a drinks reception. The full programme and topics will be shared in due course.
