Honest and direct answers
This is a side project by me, Tom Goodwin. As a long time speaker and event attendee - this project is personal. I do this because I want to help good speakers get out there and ensure events have better stimulus.
We cover all locales, all themes, and all audiences - but we only work with people who want speakers in the specific areas we offer. If you're not driven by a passion to make your event smart, interesting, and bold - then you won't attract speakers who possess those qualities. Especially not the speakers we work with. We currently only accept one of every three requests we receive.
Probably not, I did once play tennis with Richard, but he's not a great speaker. If you know precisely who you want, we are not the platform for you. We work around briefs, not specific requests. Having said that, as I am a speaker myself I can probably find and talk directly to the people you need.
Some of the speakers will be $75,000+ per event, some will be $4,000 or less. If you are working with budgets smaller than that, there are other platforms and services out there you should consider before us.
Nope, I have enough speaking gigs for 2019 already and need to get some more sleep and rest my back.
Please see the How it Works section of this site. Also do note that we are not a full service outlet.
My book is out already and you can learn more about it and purchase here.
No, but I know someone who does. You don't get as good with a clicker as I am without a million dollar, 5 year training scheme.
