About Us

It’s Not Just an Event... It’s an Experience.

Executive Speakers Bureau is a global speaker’s bureau representing the most innovative speakers who want to share their passion and creativity to make a difference in the world.

We understand your next event has the potential to be so much more. It’s a chance to educate, encourage, connect and motivate a room full of people. Having the right speaker at your event matters and that’s why we’re here to help.

At Executive Speakers Bureau we manage and match premiere speakers from around the world to make your event a memorable one. We don’t believe in a one-speaker-fits-all approach. See what makes us different:


Our Story

Executive Speakers Bureau, founded by Angela Schelp in July 1993, is headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee. In 2001, Richard Schelp joined the bureau as a co-owner. At the turn of the century, Executive Speakers Bureau expanded its business to clients outside of the U.S. Today, Executive Speakers Bureau is considered one of the top bureaus in the country. We offer thousands of national keynote speakers as well as speakers local to the client's venue to help meet the individual needs of each organization with which we work. Customer service is our number one priority. We take pride in our ability to provide world class service as well as our ability to deliver today's foremost professional speakers and expert trainers to clients around the world. It is our commitment to provide our clients with unparalleled service, access to hundreds of motivational speakers worldwide and individualized personal attention.

Our Approach

Needs Assessment

We work with you to assess your particular needs, understand your organization, determine budgetary guidelines, and listen to what you really want your attendees to get out of a session. We’ll ask questions to first understand your goals and desires for your upcoming event.

Scheduling & Management

Unlike other speaker’s bureaus, we’re able to handle scheduling, contract creation, billing, and complete management of logistical details. After your event we love following up to ensure your event was a success.

Value Added Services

We provide you with “speaker insurance.” In the unlikely event your speaker cancels his or her appearance for any reason we are committed to finding a replacement speaker who will meet or exceed your expectations.

Research & Recommendations

After having a clearer picture of your organization and event we use database research, experience, and expertise in the speaking industry to make recommendations. We will match you with some of the top speakers tailored to your event. We are proud to represent and work with the leading speakers from academia, business, politics, sports, technology, and other industries for both corporate events and private functions.
