Memphis-based Executive Speakers Bureau adds management division

Executive Speakers Bureau, an international agency based in Memphis, has announced a major expansion that takes the company to a new level within the industry. ESB’s Speaker Management Division is now dedicated to the comprehensive and exclusive management of select speakers worldwide.

“We are excited about this new chapter, and our ability to now handle all aspects of speaker management, marketing and promotion,” says Richard Schelp, president and co-owner of ESB, who created and oversaw the management division addition.

“While our company has long been known for booking top industry experts and celebrities for the past 20 years at national and global events, this gives us a whole new competitive position,” he adds.

ESB recently brought in Stephen Kirkpatrick to head the Speaker Management Division, a move Schelp calls invaluable in terms of oversight and day-to-day operations.

Angela Schelp, ESB founder and co-owner, says the new division will serve as a major building block for the company “We can now offer select speakers the freedom to focus on developing new and innovative presentations, while we handle all of the business aspects involved in their endeavors.”

The management component offers full-service tools for clients, from marketing and promotion to finance and logistics, operating as a liaison between the speaker and meeting planners, and keeping clients relevant with news and materials.

ESB also features managed speaker profiles on the web site, and provides ongoing consultation, logistical support and client relations.

Dr. Ronan Tynan, international performer and famed member of The Irish Tenors, is now fully managed by ESB. "Richard Schelp and the staff of Executive Speakers Bureau are professional, forward thinking and highly respected in the industry. ESB stands out, and having my speaking managed by them with confidence continues to be both professionally and personally satisfying," says Tynan.

Other notable speakers now under ESB’s management include: Bruce Himelstein, Global Marketing Expert and former Ritz-Carlton Executive; Daniel Sieberg, official Google spokesperson, and John Rossman, author of “The Amazon Way.”

In addition, ESB has booked such speakers as famed quarterback Peyton Manning, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, NBA legend Magic Johnson, country music superstar Wynona Judd, and author/management guru Simon Sinek.
