It's Not About Us
First off, it's not about us. It's about you. Over the last decade and a half, Premiere Speakers Bureau® has grown into one of the most respected speakers bureaus because we never forget one simple thing: It's all about you.
We don't take anything for granted. We work hard day in and day out for event planners ― experienced and newcomers, domestic and international, from big companies and from small ones ― just like you. And we have a good time doing it.
When we opened our doors in 1994 we were fortunate enough to figure out a few critical lessons early on. We figured out that your success is our success and that customer service isn't a business practice relegated to the past. We quickly found that by taking care of our clients, our other business goals would fall smoothly ― and frankly, effortlessly ― into place. We learned early on that the "big score" never outranks taking the time to build long-term relationships with really great people.
THE PREMIERE DIFFERENCE
You have a lot of options, and we don't take your business for granted. Premiere Speakers is the constant pursuit of ways to make your event smoother, easier and better. Here are just a few things that set Premiere apart:
1. Full Service ― at No Cost to You!
We provide our "turn-key" service to you at no charge because we are paid by the speakers. Why would speakers pay us rather than take your call directly? Speakers do it because it's good business ― we handle all the details. It is very difficult for a busy speaker to return your calls when traveling between speaking engagements. It is even harder for them to promptly mail demo tapes and press kits. They know if they are a good speaker, we will recommend them to our other valued clients.
2. We Specialize in Speed
One thing that we at Premiere pride ourselves on is our speed and efficiency to handle all last-minute needs. Need a speaker for a last-minute event? No problem. Our online proposals, access to speaker calendars and efficient staff give us an edge to solve your needs as soon as they arise.

3. We Handle Emergencies
Because the speed and efficiency that we just mentioned, we are always ready to resolve emergencies. The thought of a speaker's plane being delayed, a traffic jam on the way to the convention center or, even worse, a speaker who cancels at the last minute, haunts meeting planners. Flights do get canceled (our speakers always have back-up flights), roads do get iced and a speaker could get sick. However, this is when we really shine. All of our resources, our knowledge and our contacts can be put together to find a replacement speaker ASAP.
4. We Do All the Dirty Work
You can spend a great deal of time sifting through brochures and other materials in search of the perfect speaker. Then you have to call your top candidates to see who is available. Then once you select the speaker, you have to call the ten you didn't select and let them know why and so on.
At Premiere Speakers Bureau®, we first listen to your needs and objectives. We then provide you a proposal with bios, photos, topics and fee information for the best candidates that meet those needs. You only have to look through one packet to find just the right speaker. And then once you make your choice, we will check availability, take care of pre-event details ― EVERYTHING! We will send you a Premiere Flight Plan, which contains all of details that you need to ensure a stress-free event.
5. Online Access to Everything
We understand the you're busy, and we want to provide you the best information whenever and wherever you are. Our online tools such as our digital catalog and online proposals ― both of which are iPhone compatible ― allow you access to Premiere in the manner that works best for you. We even offer web events for event planners looking for something less traditional. Of course, if you prefer to do business the old-fashion way, pick up the phone and give us a call!
6. Exclusive Access to World-Class Speakers
Although Premiere can book an event with nearly any speaker you want, we are the exclusive bureau for some of world's best, most compelling speaker. From politicians like Mike Huckabee to education gurus like Ron Clark to best-selling authors like Andy Andrews, Premiere is your exclusive bureau for world-class speakers of all kinds.
