How We Work

1. Intake session

We discuss with you your company needs and collect as much information as possible about the objective of your event, the audience, the theme of the event, the topic of the speaker, the budget.

2. Research and proposal of the speaker

Selecting the right speaker for your event is of vital importance; we are experienced consultants in this field and will present you a short list of speakers for your consideration.

Our work will ensure that there is a perfect alignment of values, personality and chemistry between the speaker and your corporate culture.

We will not only help you to choose the best option but also guide and assist you through the whole process.

3. Agreement

Once the choice has been done and we have collected all information, we discuss every detail and requirement with the speaker, prepare the contracts and book the speaker(s ) ensuring that all details are discussed and requirements are met.

A 50% deposit will be required, with the balance 2 weeks before the event day, the speakers expenses will be billed after the event date.

The moment has come and we are thrilled because we know that the speaker you have chosen will improve a process of personal and social growth and open new doors.

Our speakers bureau advises you in choosing the speaker that best suits your needs, but also who organizes the briefing, drafts the contracts and assists you through the entire process.

A speaker bureau saves time and stress.

Yes, we will help you to select for you the right speaker for your events based on the language he has to speak, the objective, the topic, the budget, the venue.


Of course. It is important during the briefing stage to clarify your objectives and all further details with the speaker. We will arrange a briefing call with your speaker.

 It is very unlikely that a speaker cannot attend an event. However speakers are human and cancellations may happen. Should this occur we will do our best to find a suitable replacement, even if at short notice. In alternative we can postpone the events to another date.

As part of our speaker management service, we can assist you with logistics and travel arrangements. Terms vary between speakers so it is best to get in touch to confirm.

Speakers fees range from €/$ 5.000 to €/$ 200.000 or more, depending on a number of factors: their professional path, books sold, venue of the event, time commitment, travel.  Their fees include our commission.


As fees are flexible we will be able to give you an indication of the costs once we have a full brief, but we can quote the actual fee just at the end of the negotiation process with the speaker. It is our duty always to negotiate the best possible prices for our clients.

Generally the commission percentage paid directly by the speaker therefore in the most instances our service is free to you.

Yes if the event is on a venue, typical expenses include the speaker fee, flight expenses for one or two people, hotel accommodations and ground transportation, meals and tips. Airfare expenses are usually for first class or full coach. Some speakers also offer travel and expense flat-fee alternatives to cover all their typical, event related expenses.

If your budget doesn’t have room for the travel costs we can advise you to book a local speaker or to arrange a virtual event.

We mostly choose not to work with exclusive speakers. This because we want to offer the clients the possibility to work with an impartial agency.

If we would work with an exclusive speaker we would be committed to promote and suggest one of our exclusive speakers on other speakers. By working on not-exclusive base with all the speakers we can guarantee our clients the best choice for your events.

We have a database with many more speakers than the one listed in our website, but we also are in contact with many other agencies, in case you are looking for an exclusive speaker we co-broker the speaker with them.
