How to Find a Speaker

We offer three simple ways to find the perfect speaker for your event:

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. Here’s how it works:

  • Create a Free Account: We ask you to create a free account so we can communicate with you throughout the process.
  • Add a Listing: Once logged in, click on "add a listing" and answer a few basic questions about your event, the type of speaker you’re looking for, and your budget.
  • Approval Process: Your listing will go through a quick approval process (usually just a few minutes).
  • Receive Responses: Once approved, your message will be sent to our network of speakers based on your description. You will start receiving personalized responses from interested speakers.
  • Organize Responses: Use our tools to sort responses into "declined," "shortlist," and "accept" folders. You can also message individual speakers with specific questions.

All communication goes through SpeakerMatch, so you don’t have to worry about getting overwhelmed with emails in your personal inbox. Ready to add your listing?
