Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do you choose the speakers for DAY17?
    We’re looking for varied, entertaining speakers with a message that will make a difference.

    We start by creating a ‘must have’ list. For this event, I'm happy to say every one of the five professional speakers I invited immediately said yes.

    The 12 other DAY17 speakers are members of TEAM17. They were given the theme, ‘Learn, Connect, Inspire’ and have applied and gone through a vigorous selection programme to ensure that their content will provide maximum impact.
  • Will there be any of those terrible sales pitches?
    There’s no ‘stage selling’ at this event, so you can relax knowing there won’t be any of those embarrassing sales rants which take up 2/3 of the presentation. DAY17 is all content.
  • How long will the day last?
    We start at 10:30am and finish at 6pm. There will be refreshments at the start of the day and a social hour at the end of the day with a bar.

    There's a 90-minute mid event break with many places to enjoy lunch just metres from the Gala Theatre.
  • How long does each speaker present?
    Speakers will give 5, 10 or 17-minute presentations, ensuring amazing diversity and that their best content is shared.
  • Where is the Gala Theatre, Durham?
    The Gala Theatre can be found at 1 Millennium Place, Durham, DH1 1WA

    It’s a walk, or a very short taxi ride, from Durham Station which is on the East Coast main line.

    There’s lots of parking next to the Theatre.

DAY17 is hosted by Michael Heppell. Michael has been described as ‘One of the top three professional speakers in the world’, ‘The cure for an average life’ and by Davina McCall as ‘The person who in one hour changed my life’.

Is DAY17 right for me?

We love to push the limits and we've created an inspirational event for DAY17. 


Our last DAY17, June '23 in London, was just an afternoon - in Durham we have the whole day (and more) together.

Which means even more learning, loads more time for networking and more fun.
