Frequently Asked Questions

How do I become a speaker?
If you are an experienced, professional speaker, please visit our "Are You a Speaker Website" for submission guidelines. We appreciate your interest and look forward to reviewing your credentials.

How are fees determined?
Fees are determined by level of experience, market sustainability and competitive honorariums. If you have questions about your pricing, please request to speak to an Executive Speakers representative. The bureau is paid a small percentage from the speaker's honorarium fee.

What type of speakers do you roster?
We roster experienced, talented speakers who speak on relevant topics that are in demand among our client base. We roster all price ranged speakers in a wide range of topics. Please see our topical guidelines for an idea of what topics are most requested.

Why is Bureau representation important?
The speakers bureau has it's pulse on the speaking and meeting planning industry at all times. A good bureau knows what clients are looking for in a speaker and has a very extensive client base to which to introduce you. The bureau handles all matters of contractual agreements, scheduling conference calls, managing logistics and billing procedures that frees you from the logistics of the engagement, allowing you to focus on the message of your presentation.

Is there a fee involved in becoming a rostered speaker?
There is no fee involved in becoming a rostered speaker.

Is it a requirement to have a demo video?
It is an absolute requirement, so that we can determine if the speaker is a good fit for our organization. In addition, nearly all of our clients require videos before they will consider a speaker.

How long should a demo video be?
Three to four minutes is about all that is necessary to determine the quality of the presenter.

Is it important to have a book?
It is not important to be published but it is a plus when it comes to pricing, marketability and credibility in the speaking profession.

How many times can I expect to be booked by your bureau in a year?
There is not an exact answer as our bureau bases our speaker recommendations on our clients' objectives and budgetary parameters. The speakers that we book most frequently have a current, relevant presentation that resonates with the trends in the marketplace.
