Many of our speakers are exclusive relationships to us and we work in transparency to get them bookings and so that they can help us find them more bookings. If you are planning an event and require a quick response, it will usually take more time for them to respond to you than to us. We can put you in touch with a speaker as soon as you request the Speakers Bureau to contact them about your event.
IF I CONTACT A SPEAKER FROM A SPEAKERS BUREAU, WILL I GET A CHEAPER FEE?
No. Speakers offer the same rates to host organizations directly as they do to the Speakers Bureau of Canada. Our full-service speakers bureau is usually able to negotiate a lower rate for the speaker and our services are free to organizations and clients since our commissions come from the speakers’ side.
What happens if I reach out to a speaker directly that is represented by a speakers bureau?
Contacting one of our motivational speakers directly does not affect the pricing or fees and can complicate you sourcing a speaker for the event. As Canada’s speaker bureau we have a strong relationship with motivational keynote speakers on our website & contacting them directly can complicate our relationships.
What happens if you contact a speaker directly?
Our Speakers bureau talent will inform us if they have been contacted by an organizing team member about an event opportunity. Although we always try to get you the cheapest rate with a speaker, when you contact them, they can become less hesitant to work with you directly and we request that we jump back into the conversation. They may also become less negotiable with their fees, and you may risk on or our keynote speakers speaking to your organization.
Why do speakers like working with Speaker Bureau of Canada?
Since successful keynote speakers are often travelling between events and focused on delivering powerful & engaging presentations, they often rely on a keynote speakers bureau like the Speakers Bureau of Canada to manage their schedules, coordinate with each organization, negotiate the fees & calculating the logistics on their behalf. We secure & manage their engagements on their behalf, and happy to compensate us a small portion of the speaker fee for our services. Our speakers contract us to represent them which includes unique support for professional development, industry trends, marketing & managing each event opportunity on their behalf.
Why contact the speakers bureau instead of the speaker directly?
Due to our longstanding relationships with speakers & experts, they are quick to respond, coordinate & confirm any important details with us to speed up the booking process. Since professional speakers are often contacted and approached by hundreds of people on a daily basis, our bureau streamlines the booking process so that they can continue to focus on delivering great presentations for organizations in Canada.
