5 benefits of using a speaker bureau to hire a guest speaker

From matching the perfect speaker to a client’s brief to ensuring that every logistical detail is taken care of, The Speakers Agency is dedicated to ensuring that events, both big and small, have the right voice to inspire, educate, and entertain their audiences.

At The Speakers Agency, our roster of speakers are the professionals of the speaking circuit. Furthermore, all bookings made with The Speakers Agency are covered by our booking contracts, meaning that in any eventuality, including a speaker cancelling, you are legally protected by our terms, and our vast network of speakers and industry contacts means we can always offer you a suitable alternative.

Here are five reasons why using a speaker’s bureau is not just beneficial, but essential for your event:

  1. Taking the Leg-Work Off Your Plate:

Organising an event is no small feat. From venue selection to catering, marketing to ticketing, there’s a myriad of tasks that demand your attention. Amidst this whirlwind, finding and hiring the right speaker can become an overwhelming challenge. This is where a speakers bureau shines. At The Speakers Agency, we take on the heavy lifting. We delve into our vast network of speakers, ensuring that you get the perfect match without having to sift through countless profiles or make endless phone calls.

  1. Expert Suggestions Tailored to Your Needs:

With a wealth of experience under our belt (over two decades, to be precise!), we don’t just provide speakers; we offer expert advice. Maybe you’re unsure about the kind of speaker that would best suit your audience, or perhaps you’re torn between a few options. Our team, with its deep understanding of speakers and their strengths, can guide you, offering suggestions that align with your event’s theme, audience demographics, and objectives.

  1. End-to-End Logistics Management:

Once you’ve chosen a speaker, there’s still a lot to be done. Contract negotiations, travel arrangements, accommodation, technical requirements – the list goes on. The Speakers Agency takes care of all these logistical details. Our comprehensive approach ensures that from the moment the speaker is booked to the time they step onto the stage, every detail is meticulously managed.

  1. Consistent Communication with a Single Point of Contact:

One of the most significant advantages of working with a speakers bureau is the consistency in communication. Instead of juggling multiple contacts – managers, agents, assistants – you have one dedicated person from The Speakers Agency team who handles all aspects of your booking. This streamlined communication ensures that any queries, changes, or last-minute adjustments are handled promptly and efficiently by the one person who knows every detail of your booking.

  1. A Wealth of Experience and Knowledge at Your Disposal:

Every event is unique, and over the years, we have been faced with a diverse range of requirements and challenges. This experience is invaluable. When you work with The Speakers Agency, you’re not just getting a service; you’re gaining access to decades of industry knowledge. Whether it’s understanding audience dynamics, knowing the nuances of different event formats, or having insights into what makes a speaker truly impactful, our expertise ensures that your event stands out.

While the digital age has made it easier than ever to find and contact potential speakers, the risks involved with this also remain higher than ever. How do you know if a self-proclaimed speaker is legitimate, guaranteed to turn up on time, and deliver content that’s appropriate for your event?

Hiring a guest speaker isn’t just about finding a speaker; it’s about finding the right speaker. It’s about ensuring that every logistical detail, from contracts to tech checks, is flawlessly executed. It’s about having the peace of mind that comes from knowing you have a dedicated expert by your side.

The Speakers Agency is more than just a bureau; it’s a partner in your event’s success. With our expertise, extensive network, and unwavering commitment, we ensure that your event has the voice it deserves.
