About Us

The Goodman Speaker's Bureau Mission

The Goodman Speakers Bureau knows choosing the right professional speaker for an event can be an overwhelming task for meeting planners. Investing in a speaker is a vital and highly visible part of any event. At the Goodman Speakers Bureau, our mission is to help meeting planners meet the goals of their organization's meeting by selecting the right speaker for their event. Each event is unique, and we use our industry knowledge, strong relationships, and professional approach to help select, book, and manage logistical details of the keynote speaker throughout the event planning process.

We invest in building relationships with the professional speakers we represent. 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 work hard to find the most appropriate, affordable and available speaker to recommend to our clients.

When considering a professional speaker for your event, we have exclusive insights into:
  • A speaker's style, personality, and delivery method
  • The depth and breadth of a keynote speaker's expertise and industry knowledge
  • A speaker's comfort level with very large or very small groups
  • Knowing if a speaker only accepts keynote presentations
  • Knowing if the speaker will provide extras such as free or discounted books

As 30+ year industry veterans, we can objectively evaluate speakers on your behalf. We know if a well known celebrity can pull off a great speech – or if a lesser-known industry expert would deliver exactly what you are looking for at an more reasonable fee range.

We also know how to negotiate and package the best arrangement with a keynote speaker. In the past, we have recommended keynote speakers to serve as Emcee for an event, arranged VIP dinners with motivational speakers and top executives, arranged a round of golf with a speaker and the executive team, and made agenda recommendations based on the strengths of a speaker.

At the Goodman Speakers Bureau, we take pride in delivering professional speakers that inspire the best performance.
