Barry Carlson
Founder (Retired)



Barry Carlson resides in Central City, Nebraska. He attended Wayne State College where he played four years of baseball. Following college, he taught and coached for eight years before entering the financial services business in 1979. In sales, recruiting, and management, Barry and his agency won nearly every award the company had to offer over a 34-year career.

In 2010, he founded MidAmerica Speakers Bureau (MSB), which books numerous speakers, presenters, and entertainers throughout the country. Barry himself has been a speaker for 40 years and in that time he’s seen the best of the best and the worst of the worst. His goal for MSB was to build an organization that puts quality speakers, fast, friendly communications, and trustworthiness with both speakers and meeting professionals above all else. If you talk with MSB speakers, and meeting professionals who have booked through MSB, you will find that goal has certainly been accomplished and continues to be their focus each and every day. Take some time to read our Client and Speaker Testimonials and you will see what we mean!
