SPEAK: Desire


Welcome to the next pop-up event from SPEAK, the public speaking platform for people with ideas and stories. The theme for this pop-up is “Desire” where we will be exploring the ideas and stories of 10 unique and diverse individuals in relation to our theme. Brought to you by producer Alex Pursglove.

“If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.”

C.S. Lewis

SPEAK: Desire is an exciting theme that explores what “Desire” means from 10 different perspectives. It is our desire that people will leave this pop-up event with a deeper understanding of the role that desire plays in our lives, as well as new insights into their own wants, aspirations, and passions.
