How The Process Works
1. Tell us about your event
Drop us an email or pick up the phone and tell us about your event you working on. Any details such as date of event, timings, locations, audience profile and the type of speaker (or specific speakers) you are looking for and the budget you maybe working with. We want to get a clear understanding of your brief.
2. Speaker ideas
Once we have an idea of your brief we will pull together a shortlist of names and ideas that we think will fit with what you are looking for. That shortlist will include links to a show reel, video clips and any testimonials, it will also include a fee guide for you.
3. Choosing your speaker
Should any of the ideas appeal we sent over – we will then contact them and check availability for you and you can then decide on which speaker you wish to confirm. Once you wish to go ahead we will issue contracts and secure that speaker for you.
4. Your event
Once the speaker is contracted, we will continue to keep in contact and help arrange a briefing call with the speaker, handle all travel logistitics and, if required, get any presentations sent over in advance.
5. Post event
After the event we will be in touch to make sure all went smoothly.
Your account manager will always be your main point of contact so the same person carries your booking from start to finish without being passed over to different person.
There is a trend amongst speaker bureaus that speakers fees are listed and broken down into fee brackets to help clients see who would within their budget and help manage expectations.
While most speakers do have a fee they like to ideally command, we sometimes feel that listing fee brackets could be inaccurate as they don’t account for the following –
- Depending on their profile and experience some speakers fees will increase and some may go down and it is not always easy to keep apace with these changes
- We work for you – and it might be the case that some speakers would consider fees for a reduced rate if the circumstances were right eg. if the event was local to them, or happened to be a quieter time of the year, or the future of the event appealed to them.
As a general guide speakers listed on this site tend to fall within the £1000 – £20,000 fee bracket, with a majority of them in the £2,500/£3,000 to £10,000 bracket.
We work on the basis that we are always happy to approach speakers with lower offers (within reason), and see if we can make it work for you.
