“Gordon and the SBC team at Speakers Bureau of Canada have consistently been a major resource for me while demonstrating responsive, flexible, and professional services with partnership mindset at hand. I have worked with Gordon Breault and Roger Breault through the Speakers Bureau of Canada (formerly Speakers Bureau of Alberta) for close to 20 years. I often recommended their services to both clients and to many fellow speakers who are now part of their growing roster. Clients that I have worked with through their bureau have nothing but positive things to say about their entire experience working with them. As one of their foundational speakers, I have seen them grow as they have greatly expanded their outreach and explored innovative new ways to partner with speakers. SBC has a passion for the speaking business and their clients, team and speakers shines through in every interaction. They constantly look for new ways to improve their business model and serve their clients and they get me in front of the right audience every time.”
