How do I book a conference speaker for my event?

Using a process that's been refined over more than two decades, to facilitate thousands of events, we do all the hard work for you to make everything as smooth and easy as possible when it comes to booking keynote and motivational speakers.

Having decided upon the speaker you’d like to invite to attend your event, the first task is for us to check their availability. If everything looks good then we’ll ask you to complete our **Booking Information Form — a straightforward document asking all the obvious questions you’d expect — from the event description, aims and objectives of the conference, timings and the contracting party to delegate demographic information, dress code and venue details, etc.

Having returned the completed form to us, we use the information you’ve provided to raise a Booking Contract which you’ll need to sign, and will commit you to the booking. We then send your conference speaker a similar Contract for them to sign. Once returned to us, we countersign both yours and their Contracts, returning a copy to both parties for your records. It’s that simple!

** There are occasions, usually for a very high-profile speaker, when we’ll need to send you a Firm Offer Form instead of our usual Booking Information Form. This simply commits you to the booking a stage earlier than signing the Booking Contract. It’s a formal and binding offer to the speaker and lets them know that if they accept the invitation to attend, then you are already committed to proceeding with confirming them. Please ask one of our friendly agents if you’d like further clarity on how this works.
