Industry Speaker Bank

The Industry Speaker Bank offers schools and students insight into a variety of industries and career pathways through the real-life stories of volunteers that are experienced industry professionals.

Schools and students will develop:

  • An understanding an industry and some of the roles and pathways within it.
  • An understanding of how a career journey develops incrementally over many years.
  • An increased understanding of the value of transferable skills.

Role of the Industry Speaker

BNLLEN is always seeking new, local volunteers from varied industry and career backgrounds. We only ask that you make yourself available a few times a year to share your story and insights about the industry you work in, with a focus on:

  • the benefits of working in your industry
  • your career journey and how it developed from a young age
  • providing students with real life, tangible examples of your success.

How it works

BNLLEN will contact you if a school requests you to present as a solo speaker or part of a panel. We will try our best to give you a minimum of 4 weeks’ notice.

BNLLEN will facilitate an agreement between you and the school regarding content, time frame and audience for the event, ensuring a clear understanding of expectations. A staff member of BNLLEN will present on the day where possible to support you and help facilitate the event.

If this is something you would be interested to become involved in, please contact
