A speaker's bureau is a staff of seasoned professionals who are skilled at helping you choose the perfect motivational speaker for your event. Using a speaker's bureau makes booking speakers a much easier process than attempting to contact speakers directly. It also helps you develop events that are typically far more successful than events developed without the kind of expertise a speaker's bureau can provide.
Choosing and booking a speaker is not as straightforward as most people think. Great event planners know success is a matter of collaboration between the event planner, the audience, and the motivational speaker. A speaker's bureau helps to ensure the speaker you ultimately choose will support your event objectives. A speaker's bureau has relationships with many speakers, so you don't have to waste time calling your way down a list only to hear, again and again, that speakers you were thinking about hiring are not available. You'll even tap into a network of top-notch speakers you'd never have found on your own, offering you more choices and options than you would have enjoyed on your own.
Absolutely not. No audience is too big or too small. We are committed to supporting all kinds of events and can help you select a great fit for your event, whether it's a private gathering of 50, a charity function of hundreds, or an arena-sized convention of thousands of guests.
Just call us and be ready to provide us with a series of salient details. First, we'll need to know your budget. There can be vast differences in speaker fees, and knowing how much you can afford to spend will help us begin pinpointing which speaker is going to be right for you.
Next, we want to know more about your audience. Who are they? What sorts of problems or decisions are they facing? A speaker who is perfect for convincing high school students to pursue a college education is going to be unsuitable if you're trying to give an audience of sales executives additional tools for expanding their territories. The speaker's style matters, too. Some events call for an energetic, playful, comedic style while others call for an intense, erudite delivery.
This brings us to your goals for launching this event. What do you want to teach or accomplish? What changes do you want members of your audience to make after they walk away from your event?
Finally, we need logistical details, like the date, time, and location of the event. This will ensure the speakers we recommend to you are available when you need them.
Based upon your answers we then provide you with a list of choices and suggestions. We'll also give you each speaker's marketing materials so you'll have all the information you need to make your final decision.
I used to try to reach out to speakers individually, without going through a speaker's bureau. Frankly, that turned event planning into a nightmare. PB Talent actually made the process fun for once. I'll be calling them from now on.
