FAQ

What are the benefits of using a speakers bureau?

Working with a speakers bureau to secure talent for your events ensures that booking speakers, programs and entertainment for your event is the easiest part of your planning process. From developing creative programming ideas to securing the speaker to managing contracts to arranging logistics and travel plans, our experienced staff will be there with you at every step in the process.

Working with a speakers bureau like Spellbinders Speakers Group offers the benefits associated with the close relationships we have developed with our speakers over the years; most of whom we have seen speak. In addition to the experience gained through our 15 years in business, we’re flexible, so we are always prepared to handle any unforeseen situation that may arise at any point during the process. We can be reached 24 hours a day if there is need. Ultimately, we work hard to help ensure that your event is a great success!

Does it cost more to book a speaker when using a speakers bureau?

No, the speakers bureau is paid by the speaker, not the client. As a leading speakers bureau (not a booking agency), we actually know our speakers personally. This means that we know each speaker’s preferences and the factors that influence them to be more flexible in their fee requirements. These factors include type of organization, audience or event, the location of the event, and promotional opportunities for book sales, just to name a few. And, as we work with speakers on a daily basis, we are able to help you save on travel by tying into existing travel plans. Check out our tie-in list for opportunities in your area.

If I don’t see a speaker listed on your website, can you still book them for
my event?

Of course. Besides the speakers on our website,  our network consists of thousands more! We have access to speakers from across the globe, and we have the ability to secure other speakers bureaus’ exclusive speakers on behalf of our clients. If you are interested in a speaker not listed on our website, please email or call us at 250-494-0445 and we will tap into our global network to contact them for you.

What if my speaker has to cancel because of an emergency?

At Spellbinders Speakers Group we are pleased to boast an extremely low cancellation rate among our speakers. When the occasional cancellation does occur, it is generally attributed to something that is out of both Spellbinders and the speaker’s control – such as a sudden emergency or unforeseen circumstance. Otherwise, we have a thorough process in place when planning speaking engagements that ensures accordance with our speakers’ schedules to prevent any hiccups or cancellations.

In the highly unlikely case that an emergency does arise and a speaker must cancel, we will work with you to find an appropriate replacement. Our worldwide network of speakers offers countless options in the case of an emergency, and our 24/7 staff is more than ready to handle any last minute complications.
