About the Speaker Bureau

The calibre of a presenter is critical to the welfare of an event. A funny, enlightening, or motivating after-dinner speech will make an award ceremony live long in the mind. A credible DJ will get an audience jiving into the wee small hours. Matching the wrong personality to the wrong audience is a tragedy. Don’t Panic.

If you need a peer-approved keynote speaker, a conference or panel chair, an MC, a host, even a Voice of God, we manage a diverse roster of regional and national personalities, public speakers, and thought leaders from business, technology, politics, academia, and the arts, to help you with your event planning. Contact Sarah Power, Speaker Bureau Manager on [email protected] for more information.
