How SpeakerMatch Works

For Meeting Planners

Using Google to find speakers sounds like a great idea, but when you realize there are thousands of speakers to choose from it can become an overwhelming task. SpeakerMatch helps you sort through the noise and quickly find a professional speaker on the right topic, in the best location, and within your budget. We continue to grow our database of diverse speakers every day. With over 6,000 speakers in our directory and access to thousands more, we're confident our matching algorithm will help you find the best possible speaker for your next event. The best part, you'll have a dedicated staff member to help you throughout the whole process. We're only a phone call or email away.

We've Got 3 Easy Ways to Find A Speaker

1. Submit a speaker request on the job board

Using our job board to announce your speaker request provides you with the most comprehensive and personalized experience during your speaker search. We'll ask you to create a free account so we can communicate with you throughout the process. Once you login all you have to do is click on "add a listing" where you will be asked a few basic questions about your event, the kind of speaker you are looking for, and how much you are willing to spend. Your listing will go through an approval process (usually takes just a few minutes for our staff to review). Once approved, your message will be sent to our network of speakers based on your description. Like MAGIC, you will begin to receive personalized responses from speakers interested in speaking at your event. You'll have tools to sort responses into a "declined" folder, a "shortlist" folder, and an "accept" folder. You can even send a message to an individual speaker if you have specific questions for them. All communication goes through SpeakerMatch so you don't have to worry about getting overwhelmed with email messages in your personal inbox. Ready to add your listing?
