Guest Speakers & Interviewees

Speaking across Cornwall & beyond on Mental Health, Social Anxiety & Confidence


If you're looking for guest speakers for your event, podcast, radio or tv show, or perhaps someone to interview for a news article, then we can help!

We welcome the opportunity to start a conversation with you that shines a light on mental health and social anxiety and the effect that this can have in someone's life, whilst exploring the path from socially anxious to quietly confident and redefining what it means to be quiet, celebrating the quietude within your own audience.

Each member of our team has personal experiences that we can share, and between us we can also talk in-depth on the topics of creativity, spirituality, nature, blue health and photography - so there's sure to be a team member who's the perfect fit for your audience's needs. Take a look at our team members who can assist you below - we've even included a list of topics we can speak on with suggested questions on each speaker's profile to help you out!

"I cannot speak highly enough of the talk delivered by Stacie and Hayley of Quiet Connections, responses to their recently delivered talk included ‘you couldn’t hear a pin drop’; ‘I knew it was going to be powerful but boy….’; ‘so inspired and moved by you two incredible souls’ were just some of the comments we had back. But more than just on the day, Hayley and Stacie had real impact– their talk remained on people’s hearts, minds and actions and was truly crammed with ideas worth spreading."

"I heard you speak at the Cornwall Business Fair today and I was genuinely touched by your words and relate totally to the imposter syndrome. Something I know only too well. I just wanted to thank you for sharing."

Attendee Cornwall Faith & Mental Health Day

"I cannot tell you how much your exhibition and your talk touched me today... tears were streaming and I cannot imagine the courage it took you to share your stories in that way! I honestly don't know how you did it! Thank you so much for your bravery, strength, composure, honesty and passion in sharing as you did... you held yourselves with a great deal of grace and confidence today (even if you didn't feel like that inside!) You should be incredibly proud of yourselves - you moved mountains today! I pray that it helps many more people and brings awareness and compassion, support and safety to all those who need it so desperately."
