Who We Are

Remember the last time you were at an event, sitting on the edge of your seat, hanging on every word the speaker said? You looked around and everyone else was doing the same.
We know who those speakers are.
We’ve built our business to support you—the organization, the planner, the executive, the audience.

Our Values

We focus all of our efforts on you—the client. As a statement to this dedication, we do not accept gratuities and incentives to book our speakers. National Speakers Bureau selects the speaker who is right for your event; one who compliments your goals and objectives, as well as your audience.

Our History

We’ve been around longer than VHS tapes and know what to watch for in speakers.

After 20 years working as a band conductor with music stars across the nation, John Palmer discovered a local speakers bureau in New York City and decided to translate the model to his hometown of Chicago. In 1972, National Speakers Bureau was born.

For over 40 years, we have helped organizations produce successful events.
