As an event organizer, executive, or manager, you will probably need a speaker to attend one of your events to communicate a message to your audience of workforce

But what you probably don’t know is that finding a speaker for your event can be much easier with the help of a professional.

And, no, we’re not talking about headhunters here.

What we’re talking about are speakers agencies, a reliable, effective, and efficient partner in speaker discovery you may or may not have known about.

Keynote Speakers Are Abundant. Your Event Is Specific

If you’re struggling to find a speaker that fits your event, or you simply don’t have time to do it yourself, consider the following 5 benefits of working with a speakers agency:

#1. Expertise

A speakers agency will have experience connecting you with a speaker that will fit your event. It’s rare that you’ll ever find the perfect speaker for your event, but it is possible to find a great fit. And this is where speakers agencies shine. Here’s why:

  • Years in the industry
  • Roster of speakers
  • Networking connections

#2. Risk Mitigation

Working directly with a speaker may save you money, but it also adds more risk. Not to say many speakers will do this, but you may get a speaker who needs to cancel, reschedule, or simply goes MIA. No matter the cause for the speaker not being able to attend your event, you’re not responsible for finding another speaker. This includes:

  • Searching
  • Scouting
  • Networking
  • Contacting
  • Negotiation
  • Booking
  • Accommodating
  • And more

When you choose to partner with a speakers agency, they can help you fill all of these needs.

#3. Communication

You or your event organizer already have enough on your plate. It’s safe to assume if you add more, you’ll quickly become overwhelmed and stressed. Communicating and managing one or many speakers is a full-time job in and of itself for events. That’s why a speakers agency is so valuable to your mission.

You can communicate directly with the agency to communicate and coordinate with their speakers, leaving you with more time to get the event prepared. One point of contact to manage multiple people allows you to do more with less time.

#4. Logistics

  • Accommodations
  • Bookings
  • Travel
  • And more

Once you get through negotiations with a speaker, the job has just begun. A speakers agency offers logistical know-how for their speakers. What they need, how they need it, and when they need it to perform at their very best.

Lean on your speakers agencies for advice and assistance when it comes to your speakers logistical needs.

#5. Time & Stress

You’re already doing more than what’s expected of you. You’re on a mission to provide the absolute best event for your audience. And you’re committed to impacting as many people as possible.

You’re probably on a tight timeline and stressed about it. A speakers agency can help you relieve that stress, give you back some time, and help you pull off a successful event.


You’re moving at the speed of light to get your event organized, planned, and executed. It’s time you partner with a speakers agency that can take some of the work off your shoulders. Here are the reasons to trust a speakers agency:

  1. Expertise
  2. Risk Mitigation
  3. Communication
  4. Logistics
  5. Time & Stress
