One of the key benefits of being an MRS member are the inspirational Speaker Evenings that you can attend for FREE.

Our regular events are designed to bring members and non-members the latest smart thinking as well as entertaining content. They are also the perfect networking opportunity, giving you a chance to meet other professionals with a shared interest in a friendly environment.

Call for contributions

We are now planning the 2018 Speaker Evening programme and searching for new and inspiring topics, and speakers for future events. These events will be held in London and around the UK.

‘Growing up on the Streets research, undertaken with 200 children in Africa, was awarded the MRS Presidents Medal in 2015. We were invited to make a presentation to MRS members – outlining the research method and emerging findings. The Speaker Evening was a great way to access specialists from a variety of sectors, obtain feedback and promote debate on the important issues of poverty and street children in Africa.’
