Premiere Celebrates 15 Years!

Duane Ward

Duane Ward

Founder and Chairman of the Board

While the beginning of a new year is always reason to celebrate, Premiere Speakers Bureau is particularly excited about this New Year’s Day, as 2009 marks our 15-year anniversary.

Call it a milestone, benchmark or simply “the first chapter,” but Premiere has just completed a great run.

I am more optimistic than ever regarding the future. You may ask, “Why?”

1.    Powerful speakers creating powerful events. We spent the first 15 years bringing together the most popular and effective speakers that simply deliver results. With a massive roster, we can help you find the speaker that is sure to connect with your specific audience.
2.    Informed decisions. We’re the only agency with hundreds of audio reviews from other event planners as well as the most comprehensive website.
3.    “No-Surprises Travel”. This new “guarantee” is available only from Premiere. Launched in 2008, this new policy takes the pain out of travel expenses. Learn more at PremiereSpeakers.com/nosurprises.
4.    People still matter. Premiere’s cutting-edge technology notwithstanding, our staff is the fundamental reason for my optimism toward the future. For 15 years, we have utilized every area of business—relationship, technology, media, planning and others—to maximize our service. But I am often reminded that our team is the ultimate qualifier of success. My belief is affirmed by each letter, email an call over the past 15 years commending our staff.

As we look back at the past 15 years, we also look toward the future and plan to continue working with the world’s best speakers. Ultimately, neither our history nor our future would be possible without the thousands of event planners and speakers with whom we work each year. Thank you for honoring us with your business. We look forward to continuing that partnership throughout 2009 and beyond. If you have not yet joined us on our journey, may we invite you to do so? We believe you will be glad you made the “Premiere Choice”.
