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. 20% of the 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. That connection will create such great relationships with those clients, that 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.
In the past 20 years we have reviewed over 14,000 Speakers and picked the top 750 to list on our website.
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, their backgrounds and make sure they are committed delivering 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.
