As busy season for public speakers looms – Public Speakers 4 Hire is at a major shortage of professional speakers. The speaker’s bureau is looking to add over 50 qualified public speakers to their roster in the next month.
As the demand grows due to upcoming conference, seminars and training sessions Public Speakers 4 Hire needs enough speakers to keep up with the increased demand of meeting planners and business owners that are seeking out the speaker’s bureau to help them in finding the best speakers for their needs.
When asked why the sudden increase of companies looking to hire a speaker, Dayana Bernavil – a Hotel Sales Manager in D.C. – says:
“Q2 is a busy time for hotels since a lot of businesses are planning conferences, trade shows and events. After booking the space for the event, many business owners then turn to me for help in booking motivational or sales speakers for their conferences. I’m not an expert in speakers but I reach out to people that are such as the speakers bureau, Public Speakers 4 Hire.”
Public Speakers 4 Hire is receiving an increase of queries from Washington D.C., Miami, New York, Orlando and Las Vegas. Not surprisingly, these are the same areas that are very dense with meeting space and conference rooms.
The most in demand type of public speakers have been the following.
The average fee per speaker in 2012 was $5,550, however, this year Public Speakers 4 Hire has noticed a trend of increased budgets by businesses allocated towards booking talented public speakers, especially speakers that are celebrities or have notoriety. The reason is that organizations can draw a bigger audience as well as charge much more when the keynote speaker is a famous person.
For example, Harry Walker Agency, the speaker’s bureau that represents Hillary Clinton will be charging well into the six figures according to this exclusive Politico report. Although Public Speakers 4 Hire does not represent Hillary Clinton, they do represent other political figures and celebrity speakers. A newly added celebrity business speaker that Public Speakers 4 Hire represents collects $20,000 per speaking engagement and only takes on carefully vetted speaking opportunities.
Colleges and Universities are also clients of Public Speakers 4 Hire, the most requested speakers for educational institutions have been LinkedIn speakers, commencement speakers and motivational speakers. Colleges usually have higher budgets and are more selective about the speakers that they hire. Many book speakers months to a year ahead of time.
Although, the demand has been high, Public Speakers 4 Hire has promised not to lower the standards for the speakers that they accept in their speaker’s bureau. Speakers interested in joining the bureau still have to meet certain criteria and pass a one on one interview before being selected to join. The reason that this process is meticulous is due to the expectations that Public Speaker 4 Hire has set with their clients.
The meeting planners and CEOs that turn to Public Speakers 4 Hire are expecting nothing but the best. Many of the speakers are getting paid between $5,000 to $20,000 per speaking engagement so Public Speakers 4 Hire ensures that only top talent gets booked so the client is satisfied and returns year after year to use the services of the speaker bureau again and again.
