Why You Should Use A Booking Agent to Hire A Celebrity Speaker!

Celebrity Motivational Speakers

Celebrity Speakers Bureau generates thousands of leads from natural search on Google, Bing, Yahoo and other search platforms from customers looking to hire a celebrity speaker. Why? Well, some customers just don’t have the experience to complete the entire booking process, some customers don’t have the time to do the research and outreach to check celebrity motivational speakers fees, availability and interest. Lastly, some just don’t want to believe that some keynote speakers cost as much as they do.

Let Us Do The Hiring Work for Your Celebrity Speaker

We easily get 25% of our leads from customers that have gone to other’s websites and couldn’t believe how expensive some speakers are. Our standard answer is that it’s a sellers market. What does that mean? It means the economy, like the stock market, is white hot! Keynote Speakers with minimal appeal are getting $20,000-35,000 per speaking engagement.

We can negotiate with the best of them, but sometimes there is just no wiggle room when you hire a celebrity speaker at their peak. This is the hardest discussion to have with non-profits who always expect steep discounts. Not every celebrity speaker that is offered a speaking engagement by one of our talented speaker booking agents is willing to accept non-profit appearance opportunities for a reduced fee.

We Know The Speaker Market And The Facts 

That is just the world we live in and the environment the market is in. The fact is, 2 out of 3 customers that contact us have no idea what a motivational speaker costs or what their fees are. They are basing it only on other’s websites that they have found through a search engine. I promise you that there is no truth in advertising when it comes to public speaking fees on company’s websites.

It’s classic bait and switch; advertise Mark Zuckerberg but they know he doesn’t and can’t do paid speaking engagements. Facebook’s corporate governance precludes Zuckerberg from taking payment for any speech. So knowledge and facts are one of the most important things that the agents at Celebrity Speakers Bureau possess when helping our clients hire a celebrity speaker for their event.

 Our Trained Agents Save You Time…And Time Is Money 

If you think the current President or CEO of any international corporation is available just because they are listed on someone’s website, you are mistaken – respectfully. Time is money and the more time you waste with fools that don’t understand the reality of the current business climate when hiring public speakers, the worse you look and the more time you’re wasting! Celebrity Speakers Bureau has trained speaker booking agents that have been in the business for decades.

Our Experience And Professionalism Are A Cut Above The Rest

Celebrity Speakers Bureau has amassed a working database of thousands of fees for speakers, contact information, data and a treasure trove of relationships with talent agents. Booking agents and attorneys that represent some of the biggest celebrities in the world to TED speakers, athletes, celebrity chefs, reality TV stars and futurists to tech titans, business giants, social media influencers and many others. For one company to have the breadth of knowledge, contacts and fees to hire a celebrity speaker at the level Celebrity Speakers Bureau does, it is important to consider these facts when you decide who you want to hire as your agent of record and represents your best interest when searching for a speaker for your next event.

In the last several months, we have hired top keynote speakers including Gary Vaynerchuk, Dara Torres, Nick Cannon, Jack Welch and Anne Burrell. Each of these speaking engagement opportunities were unique in one way or another requiring Celebrity Speakers Bureau to be on it’s toes to make sure the contract was perfect, the talent representation was constantly and accurately communicated to and the client was happy with every step of the way.

Here’s a little more info on some of our recent hires: 

business speaker gary vaynerchukGary Vaynerchuk: This self-made millionaire is perhaps THE MOST sought-after keynote speaker for business events, sales conferences, internal meetings and business leadership forums right now. His no-holds-barred, uninhibited approach to success in life and business challenges audiences to take hold of their life and create their own success. Gary’s had a busy year in 2017 so far and is scheduled to appear as the featured keynote speaker at the SALT Conference in Las Vegas, Influence MTL Conference in Montreal and BrandMinds 2017 in Bucharest all in the next week.

Sports Speaker Dara TorresDara Torres: 5-Time Olympian and iconic fitness icon Dara Torres has emerged as one of the top keynote speakers for hire for womens conferences and leadership events in 2017. Dara is the most medaled female U.S. Olympic swimmer and broke down barriers when she competed in the 2008 Olympic Games as the oldest U.S. Olympic swimmer in history at age 41. Dara has since become a NY Times bestselling author, an active celebrity spokesperson and entrepreneur. Her down to earth demeanor and inspirational stories are sure to give your attendees a new outlook on goal-setting and execution.

celebrity speaker nick cannonNick Cannon: When it comes to entertainment, Nick Cannon seemingly does it all. He’s acted, he rapped, he created his own music/entertainment company and he’s the host of one of the funniest shows on MTV called Wild ‘n Out. As a keynote speaker at events like SXSW and other industry conferences, Nick provides a unique perspective on entrepreneurship, following your passion, building success and adapting with the marketplace. Most recently, Nick was hired by Experian Marketing Services to appear at their annual conference for customers and employees this June.

business speaker jack welchJack Welch: Jack is a retired business titan and NY Times bestselling author who has been touted as one the most influential men in business in the last several decades. Before his retirement, Jack was responsible for expanding GE into new markets and raising profitability by over 4,000% in his 20 years with the company. He has now created his own online MBA program which consistently ranks in the top 15 online MBA programs in the world each year. If you are interested in booking Jack Welch for your event, it’s important to note that he is only available for moderated Q&A sessions as opposed to a traditional keynote.

celebrity chef speaker anne burrellAnne Burrell: You probably recognized this spiky-haired culinary diva from her many appearances as a show host and cooking competition judge on some of Food Network’s most popular TV series. Away from the bright lights of the TV test kitchen, Anne travels around the country as a special events host participating in cooking demonstrations, moderated Q&A sessions, keynote speeches and getting involved with charitable non-profit organizations. In April, Celebrity Speakers Bureau booked Anne to headline Meals on Wheels Delaware’s annual celebrity chef brunch where she acted as the main event emcee and oversaw special silent auctions throughout the day.
