Nobel Prize Speakers

There is no higher accolade than the Nobel Prize, and a Nobel Prize speaker is certain to become the highlight of any event. At Aurum Speakers Bureau, we are immensely privileged to represent a diverse field of Nobel Prize-winning speakers who’ve claimed the greatest honor in a variety of fields.

Since its establishment in 1901, the Nobel Prize has been the preeminent award for excellence in Chemistry, Literature, Medicine (or Physiology), Peace, and Physics. An additional prize has been awarded since 1968, to recognize luminaries in the Economic Sciences. The prize was the brainchild of chemist, inventor, and entrepreneur Alfred Nobel. Each year, an international panel of around 3,000 academics identify potential Nobel Prize recipients. There is no restriction on the gender, ethnicity, or nationality of nominees – an approach which ensures a diverse field of entrants reflective of the very best international talent. Nominees are then subject to an expert-led selection process; those luminaries awarded prizes are known as Nobel Laureates.

With a maximum of three prizes per category, Nobel Laureates are few in number. It’s little wonder then that many academics regards their knowledge, views, and personal reminiscences as intellectual gold dust. Browse our range of Nobel Prize speakers to add authority, credibility, and gravitas to your event.
