The firm was established in 1992 in San Angelo, Texas. By 1996 it had developed into a major Dallas internet based international speaker business. It evolved into working with talent who had expertise in entertainment, educational, financial, technology, healthcare, university and motivational markets. The name allowed the company to widen its customer territory. And these markets grew with both European and U.S. based corporate organizations.

As part of the natural growth, International Speakers Bureau, Inc. contracted with notable individuals, such as, Billie Jean King, Anderson Cooper, Al Sharpton, Barbara Walters and many more well known speaker stars. The Auction assets include the speaker database of over 15,000 contacts; business targets include corporations, associations, universities, government agencies and trade associations from around the world, the advertising and PR databases included. This online asset auction is scheduled for April 1st thru 3rd, 2014.

International Speakers Bureau, Inc. ran as close to a turn-key business as possible. With an already established and recognized name, the intellectual property is ready for an individual or company to put it to use. Out of 700 speaker’s bureaus, International Speakers Bureau became the 6th largest in the industry of its kind in 1998. ISB has provided speakers for firms small and large such as American Airlines, Nortel, Texas Instruments, Sprint, Dr Pepper, Frito-Lay, MCI, Chrysler, AT&T, and Microsoft just to name a few.
