The Speaker Experts have fired up their Commadore 64 and dusted off their slide rule in order to determine the 10 most “booked” corporate and association speakers in the United States. These thought leaders all eclipse or come very close to the magical number of 100 presentations per year. To the average person on the street, these speakers have little name value BUT to those in the meeting planning and speaker bureau industries, they are legendary and almost mythical celebrities who are asked for by name. Despite a travel schedule that keeps them on the road hundreds of days out of the year, these speakers will never miss a speech and deliver world class presentations under any conditions.

  • We have provided a direct link to every speaker’s webpage where you can view steaming video and gather background information. We strongly suggest you work with an IASB-member speaker bureau to determine the right speaker from this list for your audience with the one exception being Jason Dorsey, who does not work with speaker bureaus.
  • Eric Wahl and Mike Abrashoff are holdover speakers from last year’s list. The already high demand for their speaker services has increased in the past year along with their speaking fees.
  • Robert O’Neill is exclusive with Leading Authorities; they would be your direct and best source to secure his speaking services.

It is impossible to truly determine the 10 most “booked” corporate and association speakers in America. However, we have based our observations on market demand, inertia, internet research and interactions with thousands of meeting professionals over the past twelve months.

Check back next week when The Speaker Experts gaze into our magic crystal ball and identify 10 trending speakers who are candidates to make the most-booked list next year!
