Who We Are
When we first started this Agency we received some powerful advice from Tim Sanders, formerly of Yahoo! This is what he said:
“Don’t think about sales or closing deals, just position yourself so that whenever you can help someone you help them, no matter what you think the outcome will be. 20% of those people will take your help and you will probably never hear from them again. But that won’t matter because the other 80% will remember you and how you helped them which will create such great relationships with those clients, not only will you build a great business – you will build a great life.”
We have followed that advice from the very day we heard it and the results have been remarkable.
There are over 750 Speakers on our website individually picked from the 12,000 speakers we have reviewed over the past 15 years in the Industry.
Our speakers come from two main sources:
- Research: We have a research team constantly looking at the latest Speakers on the circuit. Before we add any Speaker to our site we review their references, look at their backgrounds and make sure they have ability to deliver outstanding results for our clients.
- Clients: We have a network of 3200 clients who have been booking speakers for 10-15 years and are our eyes and ears at thousands of events annually.
