What Are People Saying About Our Speakers Agency?

After speaker events, many of our clients like to share feedback about their experience booking an event speaker with Preferred Speakers. Here are some of the kind remarks we’ve received over our years:

I have worked with Preferred Speakers for 10 years – they have helped us secure Ken Burns, David McCullough and a host of other great speakers for our annual MecDec celebration in Charlotte.   They have always been super responsive, helpful and professional.  I can’t recommend them highly enough.

I have worked with Preferred Speakers for over a decade and the customer service continues to be top notch.  They have access to all of the top national and local speakers we request, so it’s one simple phone call to make to get exactly what you need.  In addition to their professional service, Preferred Speakers’ staff treat you like family.   That’s why we keep coming back.

I congratulate Preferred Speakers on 75 years of service!  We’ve been highly satisfied.  They listen to our needs and respond with a great slate of candidates for our annual conference.  After our selection, they show the right mix of flexibility and attention to detail.  We also enjoy working with a local connection to nationwide talent.

It was our distinct pleasure and privilege to work with Preferred Speakers to coordinate and confirm celebrated journalist and author Joan Lunden as the mistress of ceremonies for Casa Colina’s 75th Anniversary Gala. Preferred Speakers handled each detail with professionalism and poise. We congratulate Preferred Speakers on their 75th anniversary! We welcome the opportunity to work with them again.

The staff at Preferred Speakers & Entertainment is professional, knowledgeable, thorough, and just plain fun to work with!  They take all the stress out of booking, saving me time, dollars… and gray hairs!

Congratulations to Preferred Speakers on their 75th Anniversary!  It is no surprise to me that they have hit this impressive milestone.  A pleasure to work with and a first class operation offering the best of the best in public speaking engagements from the worlds most interesting and effective leaders of our time.  Thank you Sheila, Katy and Annie for handling every detail with expertise and care. 

Over the past 15 years I have had several occasions to call upon the staff at Preferred Speakers to ask for their help in securing speakers. I appreciate their taking the time to understand the nature of our events and the critical role the right speaker plays in the overall success of an event. Speakers they have helped secure include Tom Brokaw, James Earl Jones, John Cleese, Jay Leno (twice!) and more. They are professional, calm (can’t overemphasize this!) and very easy to work with! Thank you Sheila, Annie and Katy for your service! 

Thank you for arranging the performances of Gordie Brown and Greg Schwem at our annual Awards event! Greg was again the perfect master of ceremonies and Gordie “brought down the house”! I look forward to working together again in the future.

Hi Preferred Speakers!
We made it back to KC following the Agriliance meeting (after a quick stop at Cabela’s). Just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated the bottle of champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries. They were almost too pretty to eat, but of course, we took care of that job with little trouble.

Our speaker did such an excellent job and everyone thoroughly enjoyed his presentation!

We’re glad you took the time from your family to be with us! I’ve enjoyed working with you and am sure we will have the opportunity to again plan speakers in the future.”
