Conversations worth having
What is Talk About?
Talk About is a multi-platform organisation dedicated to connecting young people and professionals, breaking down current affairs and increasing career aspirations.
Our mission is to create the UK’s largest platform for young people and professionals.
We want to make current affairs more accessible for everyone while increasing career aspirations for young people. Our platform is constantly evolving, growing and engaging.
Our five guiding principles
- Maintain a broad information platform that young people can rely on and return to.
- Report factual and useful information on current affairs.
- Build a community of young people and professionals.
- Transform the way businesses engage with young people
- Make the complex simple (always).
Talk About in numbers
Talk About is a platform that brings the innovative ideas of future leaders to the current leaders of today. We do this through:
Our national community of contributors create content ranging from live streams to written articles.
Aged between 16-30, our contributors showcase their interest in politics, law, finance, the environment, technology, health and the world of business.
We create safe spaces for young people to come together, get inspired and equip them with the networks and knowledge to create the changes they want to see in the world.
At the heart of each project lies our belief that magic happens when young people and professionals come together to share ideas.
We work with various organisations from large corporates to educational institutions, designing and delivering bespoke workshops, live debates and exclusive events.
Our partners enable us to support our community of future leaders.
We host events designed to get people talking about global issues, learning from each other and developing solutions.
Currently all of our events are digital webinars or live streams so you can enjoy them from wherever you are.
Our biggest digital event is our fortnightly game show, Talk About Friday Night Live. Prior to the COVID-19 outbreak, we also held many public events across the UK and look forward to offering these again soon.
Spread across 48 cities, our contributors bring a wealth of diversity and ideas to our community
