We often get asked can we book someone who is not on our website and the answer to this is YES. Whilst we have about 300 speakers on our website and add new names relatively frequently, we also have an extensive database of further contacts that allow us to book a wider range of speakers. Below are just a few examples of speakers we have worked with who are not on our website but have recently done speaking events for us.
We have worked with Matthew for many years and will continue to do so. His knowledge of the Speaker Market and ability to interpret our clients requirements is quite exceptional.
He is incredibly thorough in his approach and always goes that extra mile to ensure everything is exactly as required.
I am always happy working with Matthew, he has great credibility, he is very diverse in his ability to make things happen.
Matthew Fisher and I have worked together for many number of years. I have always found Matt to be honest, good natured and willing to work hard always carefully selecting the best appearances to suit my personality and lifestyle. The work Matthew has delivered for me over the years has varied from schools, colleges, attending film premiers, guest speaking to name a few all of which I have lots of memories and thoroughly enjoyed.
