How it Works

Our goal at Speaker Services is to create a powerful, professional speaking profile for you that attracts meeting planners

Here’s how it works…

We create a listing for you in our Speakers Directory based on the info you give us on our detailed Speaker Intake Form. We do the writing, and our professional writers go back and forth with you until your listing is right. We do a complete profile that highlights who you are and what you do, your presentations, bio, best-fit audiences, testimonials, books on Amazon, videos, contact info, and links to your website and social media. Here’s what a listing looks like. It’s like having a personal Web page devoted to your speaking career.


We also include training. You get one-on-one coaching sessions with the experts on our team (You can choose). Here’s a link to the Our Team page.

Since event planners contact you directly, we don’t take any fees from your bookings—no middlemen, ever. We have four plans for listing in the Speakers Directory, from Emerging Speaker to Pro Gold. Check them out here. We take credit cards and PayPal, and all plans include a professional profile by our writers plus private coaching with the experts on our team. It’s $99-149 down to get started, depending on which plan you choose, and payments range from $25-39/month. (Pay in full and get additional months in the Directory.) Updates and changes? Of course! It’s all included.
Check out our testimonials from both event planners and speakers. And here are some of the companies who’ve hired our speakers. Want more info? Check out our FAQ page.
Some background: Speaker Services has been connecting speakers and audiences for over 23 years. Susan Levin and Jean-Noel Bassior started the business together in 1992 as a print directory. (See Our Founder) My background (Jean-Noel) is as a journalist. You can see some of my celebrity interviews here. When I coach speakers on how to get more gigs, I draw on my experience in getting past the Hollywood gatekeepers, because the same skills used by journalists on assignment can be used by speakers when they contact event planners. If you want to get even more gigs as a speaker, it’s good to know how to be proactive, and I like teaching that to speakers.
Feel free to call us with any questions. We never try to sell our service—it has to feel right to you. Our goal is to create a beautiful, professional speaking profile for you that will attract meeting planners. BTW, we’re known for our excellent SEO (great search engine presence) and our personal, one-on-one training (included with your listing) that helps you get more gigs and build your speaking career. Look forward to speaking soon!
