We are THE Preeminent Speakers Bureau in Orange County for fresh talent, fresh topics, and new takes, where Emerging Speakers (whether in Business already (corporate or individual), working towards professional speaker, or – online personalities and brands) become Professional Speakers of tomorrow.  Our pool of Certified and working towards Certified Speakers, represent a varied range of topics such as Leadership, Sales, Motivation / Inspiration, Social Media & Branding, Spokesperson, Youth Leadership, and Employee Engagement delivered across a  broad range of styles (such as educational, edutainer, entertainer, motivational, but all engaging).

We are focused on developing and supplying well-rounded (online and offline) speakers needed for today’s audiences! It’s not about technical perfection – but about engagement, story, interaction, new ideas.  Speakers who are capable of presentations that drive interaction on and offline.  You won’t find a fresh speaker pool as adept as ours.

…our speakers:

are put through a rigorous training and evaluation process, and hand selected. We strive to ensure our Certified Speakers have stage presence, can engage their diverse audiences, and can talk to your groups and associations on the latest topics. Their presentations are using current technology (where applicable), relevant, and interactive.

We constantly aim to challenge our Speakers, and encourage them to continue learning, diversify their skills, and stay relevant with the latest topics.  Many of our speakers are also authors, coaches, consultants, and have businesses or startups of their own.  We encourage you to explore our site and to review the articles and videos of our Certified Speakers presented here on the site.

Note for Toastmasters members:   You are always welcome at our meetings, and to be a part of our group!

Because mold breakers are the ones being paid.
