There are plenty of speaker bureaux out there, so why choose us?


London Speaker Bureau is a speaker bureau with a slight difference.  We are not just an international agency that represents and works with some of the most influential people around the world.  We are more importantly, a 25 year old global resource for corporations and governments, providing keynote speakers, executive learning masterclasses, and senior boardroom advisers.  We are not interested in the “quick sale” but in longer term relationships and more thoughtful partnerships.  We always try to take the time to determine your exact needs so you get the appropriate person for your session.


London Speaker Bureau represents and has access to a diverse and unique group of political leaders, economic forecasters, multi-national chairmen, digital cyber experts and educational thought leaders.  Their expertise is drawn on to stimulate audiences and lead corporate programmes and boardroom strategy sessions.  Underpinning our approach is an open mind, the ability to continually search for fresh talent and occasionally a little risk taking.  Several of our most in-demand people were unknown when we first saw them – people like Sugata Mitra, the educational and technology academic who went on to win the 2013 Global TED Prize.


London Speaker Bureau is a dynamic organisation with a solid global presence. In 2018 we were involved in 3003 events taking place in over than 80 countries. We are a team of 110 colleagues based across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and North America, each with a detailed understanding of their region’s economic and governmental scene. Choosing us to help find your speaker will ensure your event or meeting has somebody experienced and world class.
