Top Benefits of Working with a Speakers Bureau

Planning an event is a lot of work, and securing the right speaker can feel like the biggest hurdle. The Speakers Agency is here to help you overcome that hurdle with confidence.

What exactly is a speakers bureau?

A speakers bureau is a curated talent roster of renowned speakers and event hosts on the circuit. These are industry experts, captivating storytellers, and engaging personalities who have a proven track record of success on the event stage. Speakers agree to be registered with a reputable bureau like The Speakers Agency, and we build longstanding relationships with each one. This allows us to provide in-depth insights into their expertise, presentation styles, and ideal audience fit.

The three main benefits or working with a speakers bureau

  1. Peace of Mind & Guaranteed Quality: Booking a speaker directly can be risky. With The Speakers Agency, you’re partnering with a reputable company with a proven track record. We meticulously vet all our speakers, ensuring they are reliable, professional, and deliver exceptional presentations. Having been in business since 2001, we like to think we’re doing something right!
  2. Expertise & Perfect Pairing: Finding the perfect speaker for your event requires expertise. Our team of booking agents are industry experts. They possess an in-depth understanding of our vast speaker roster, encompassing thousands of specialists across diverse fields. This allows them to perfectly match a speaker’s unique talents and experience to your specific event goals and audience.
  3. Contingency Planning & Backup Support: While cancellations are rare, unforeseen circumstances can arise. When you book through The Speakers Agency, you’re protected. We have iron-clad contracts in place, and in the exceptional case of a speaker cancellation, our team will work tirelessly to secure a suitable replacement, ensuring your event runs smoothly.

Why choose the Speakers Agency?

Transparency and ethics are at the core of everything we do. We meticulously vet all our speakers and only represent those with a proven track record of reliability, professionalism, and delivering high-impact presentations.

Additionally, we streamline communication by assigning you a dedicated Account Manager who will be your single point of contact throughout the entire process. Offering personalised service, our team will take the time to understand your specific event goals, target audience, and budget to curate a shortlist of speakers perfectly tailored to your needs.

Unlike some speaker booking agencies, we are also unbiased in our expertise. Our recommendations are driven solely by one thing: your event’s success. Account Managers will provide objective recommendations based on the best fit for your event, free from any incentive to promote specific speakers.

With a long-standing history of excellence since 2001, The Speakers Agency boasts a team with experience you can trust.
