MIDAMERICA SPEAKERS BUREAU
Frequently Asked Questions
Why book through MidAmerica Speakers Bureau?
There are several reasons. First, we know our presenter’s talents and strong suits, because unlike other bureaus, we have seen a large percentage of them speaking or performing in-person! Secondly, we are considered one of the most “timely” bureaus in America. We take great pride in getting back to our meeting professionals as quickly as possible. We know you have enough on your plate in just planning the event, so our goal is to remove some of that stress by finding a speaker who will wow your audience and make YOU look good in the process. In other words, leave the leg work to us! If you would like to learn more about our amazing service, please take a few minutes to read some of the testimonials from both meeting planners and presenters who have felt compelled to put it in writing.
Is MidAmerica Speakers Bureau affordable?
We represent speakers with a wide range of fees, from $1,000 to $25,000 and above. It is very helpful in narrowing down our search if we know your budget range. That way we can go directly to the presenters that fit within your budget and begin our search, saving you valuable time. If you’re unsure, no problem, we’ll work through it with you. And please remember, our service is free to you. With us, you pay the presenter directly the day she or he speaks/performs, and there is no additional fee for MSB.
What type of presenters are available?
Our presenters include leaders, motivators, authors, consultants, coaches, trainers, educators, humorists, business owners, comedians and various entertainers from across the country. No matter the occasion, you’re sure to find the perfect presenter when booking with us. Standing ovations are commonplace, and remember, we’ve seen most of them in-person so we know exactly what you’re getting!
What if I don't know which speaker to choose?
We’ll make it easy for you to find the perfect one. Once you’ve told us a little about your event, your budget, your audience and the message you would like conveyed, we will match you with one who will best meet your needs. You can be confident our recommendation will be right on target.
How Far in Advance Should I Book a Speaker?
Although there is no hard and fast rule, the sooner the better is always a good idea. Speaker’s schedules fill up quickly and it can be maddening when you choose a speaker and he or she is already booked on your date. In fact, although not always possible, it is a good idea to choose your speaker first, then match your date to his or her availability.
What if a speaker can't make it?
As we all know, life happens. Although we cannot absolutely guarantee we can secure a replacement (travel, weather, time restraints, etc.), we will do everything in our power to find you a suitable one. In fact, that is one of the benefits of working with our bureau. Ask yourself this…if you have booked a speaker directly and he or she cancels, where does that leave you? With MSB we are with you every step of the way!
