Finding a professional speaker is so easy … just fill out an online form and you’re done!
The Goodman Speakers Bureau knows many meeting planners or executives looking for a speaker can be overwhelmed with all the options, the process and the fear of picking a dud. Since an investment in a speaker becomes a vital (and highly visible) part of any event – you need to be sure you make an exceptional choice!
So, let your first stop be The Goodman Speakers Bureau. We invest countless hours getting to know each professional speaker. We also work very closely with each client to determine the specific purpose for each speaker they hire – whether for a meeting, conference, educational seminar or other event. Then, we get to work to find the most appropriate, affordable and available speaker to recommend to our clients.
We know professional speakers may all look the same when surfing online or watching YouTube video clips. But the reality is far, far different. So, before you fall in love with the first speaker that pops up on Google, we’d like to caution you – there’s more to consider, such as:
- A speaker’s style, personality, and delivery method
- A speaker’s comfort level with very large (or small) groups
- Knowing if a speaker only accepts keynote presentations
- Being able to arrange a round of golf with a speaker and your executives
- Knowing if the speaker will provide extras such as free or discounted books
How could you possibly learn any of this through an online web search?
As 30-year industry veterans, we can objectively evaluate speakers on your behalf. We know if a house-hold celebrity can pull off a great speech – or if a lesser-known industry expert would deliver exactly what you are looking for (and at some impressive fee ranges).
We also know how to negotiate and package the best arrangement with a speaker. In the past, we have recommended keynote speakers to serve as Emcee for an event; we’ve arranged VIP dinners with the speaker and top executives; we’ve made agenda recommendations based on the strengths of a speaker; and much, much more.
True – we may not be able to create a list of 1.8 million speakers in 2.9 seconds. But, using our expertise, relationships and industry knowledge, we can recommend a “home run” professional speaker for your meeting or event – every time!
