Our experts take the guesswork out of hiring the right speaker. We know the top speakers and maintain a thorough database of audience reviews, which help guide our suggestions. Additionally, we are not contractually obligated to any speaker, so our recommendations are made solely with your meeting success and individual needs in mind.

You may preview speakers anytime on our website by searching our database by topic, geographic location and/or fee. If you would like to receive our monthly Featured Speakers Newsletter, please send a request to You will receive a monthly email listing of speakers whose presentations you may be able to preview live in your hometown or when you are traveling.

No. Although we are continually adding speakers to our website, we have an additional database of professional speakers at hand. If you would like information on a speaker, but do not see him/her on our website, feel free to contact us. Chances are, we have worked with that speaker in the past.

No. The majority of speakers we work with maintain a high-degree of fee integrity, which means they charge the same fee to everyone who books them.

Speakers’ fees can widely vary depending on presentation style and speech length. In addition to the fee, you can expect to pay for full coach or first-class airfare, ground transportation, hotel accommodations, meals, incidentals such as parking and tips, and audio-visual requirements.

Consider booking speakers who live close to your meeting site to keep travel costs low. Or, ask your PPA representative to negotiate an inclusive fee (fee plus expenses) with your speaker before going to contract. If you have multiple meetings where a single speaker would be appropriate, ask your PPA representative to negotiate a multiple bookings fee with the speaker.

No. Typically, PPA works with speakers to arrange their own travel. Our customers direct-bill the speaker’s hotel room and sometimes, depending on the speaker, arrange for car service.

This varies by speaker. Please let your PPA representative know about any and all special requests of the speaker BEFORE going to contract. Typically, speakers are very accommodating, and we will be happy to negotiate these requests for you.

Speakers’ policies regarding their intellectual property vary. Some speakers will allow recording for internal use only, others will allow wider distribution for a one-time fee or require a percentage of sales. This is one of the details that we will help you negotiate prior to contracting a speaker.

Although it doesn’t happen often, occasionally a speaker will have to cancel due to a personal emergency, weather, or travel delay. With our depth of resources, we will quickly identify a suitable replacement for you.

Our website is here for you as a resource, but we are always available to consult with you by phone or email. Submit your request on-line or give us a call to discuss your speaker needs. You may already know exactly which speaker you want, but if not we’ll be happy to offer recommendations and send you a proposal via email.

We will negotiate all of the details of the speaker’s appearance, and prepare the contracts for you. As your meeting date nears, you’ll have an opportunity to fill out a pre-program questionnaire, which will help familiarize your speaker with your organization and objectives, we’ll arrange a conference call, and ensure that handouts and/or multimedia presentations are prepared in advance. We pride ourselves on taking care of the little details that help make your event a big success!
