The Goodman Speakers Bureau is fully committed to advancing the role of professional speakers in the  meetings industry. Professional speakers add great value and significance to every meeting, large or small, regardless of topic or industry. We are equally enthusiastic about meeting planners who seek to learn about keynote speakers and how to better make use of their talents.

We are actively involved in the sponsorship of several key events attended by meeting planners, association executives, and others who use professional speakers. These events provide valuable opportunities for professionals to hear keynote speakers first-hand, and learn how to use them more effectively, creatively, and strategically to meet all their meeting objectives.
