The Speaker Experts have assembled their list of the top ten most-booked speakers on the corporate and association speaking circuit (this list does not include the college or civic markets). There are no “Moneyball” type analytics or sabermetrics to determine the 10 most-booked speakers in America. This list is based on information gathered after interacting with thousands of meeting professionals, speakers, and speaker bureaus, along with market research (The Speaker Experts peruse a lot of websites) conducted throughout the year. Many of these speakers eclipse the magical 100 events a year figure, and the rest come pretty close to it.

A few notes:

– If the speaker below has an exclusive agency relationship, we have provided that bureau’s webpage address.

– If the speaker does not have an exclusive allegiance to an agency (otherwise known as “non-exclusive”), we have provided a direct link to the speaker’s  webpage. However, The Speaker Experts strongly suggest you work with your preferred bureau partner in scheduling one of these speakers.

Are these really the 10 most “booked” corporate and association speakers in America? We can’t say for sure, but they’re pretty darn close. Of course, being on this list doesn’t make any one of these speakers the right speaker for your meeting or event. The Speaker Experts will address finding the right speaker in an upcoming post titled “The Perfect Speaker for Your Next Event…..Has No Name”
