There are tons of tech events in Europe happening throughout the year (check out our comprehensive calendar for the first half of 2015), but who are the best technology speakers from this part of the world?

Well, Bizzabo, a company that helps organisers with the community-building and networking aspects of physical events, has curated a list of Europe’s top technology speakers, based on its experience working with more than 4,000 professional conferences and events across the globe.

I can think of a few names that should probably be on this list (Sir Tim-Berners-Lee, Maelle Gavet, Saul Klein, Martin Varsavsky and Brent Hoberman spring to mind) but it’s not a bad list to start with.

In no particular ranking, here are the top 10 European tech speakers, according to Bizzabo:
