About Us

For Speakers: We are not just another group!

  • Do you want to speak outside your club but don’t know what to do next?
  • Did you join Toastmasters as a step toward paid speaking engagements?
  • Do you own a business and want to drive leads through Speaking?
  • Are you looking to get promoted?
  • Have something to say, or have a unique point of view and want to build an audience?

Then our Emerging Speakers Bureau is for you!

Want to know what is a speakers bureau and what we are about?

We here at the Bureau are the midwifery for ideas …. the beta blockers for excuses. While we are called the Emerging Speakers Bureau – we stand (and exist) for the Emerging Thinkers – we are a think tank of voices, messages, and meaning working through those ideas to turn them into diamonds…
…To stop ‘waiting’ for people to find us, listen to us, and pay us, but to take our ideas messages & meanings and uncover them, polish them, deliver them through the best venue (online and offlien). We provide outlets here at the Bureau, ways to get feedback, find partners for ideas, to get the word out, to discover the best method for delivering the idea and to multi purpose that idea. We work against perfectionism, the nagging critic in your head, excuses, and help you get past yourself to bring your legacy out of your mind and onto a stage in front of a mic (live or digitial).
If you have ideas for messages, topics, meaning, lessons, a better way to milk a cow, how to turn phone calls into gold, how to bounce back from financial disaster, you name it (even if you are not sure of the name but know it’s there)….we are THE only place that will help you bring that idea out, fine tune it, make your message (idea) clear & memorable, help you deliver it, and partner you with the right people for more exposure. And finally, to  make your own money from that and not wait for others to find you and hire you.
There are places that will focus just on the speaking, making you perfect. Some focus on the book, getting it out there. Some focus on the digital, overpowering social media.  We are a ‘distribution channel’ agnostic group, because we believe that once you find your idea, and can communicate it well, you need an integrated platform of distribution options.  While we focus on ‘digitally speaking’ – the goal is to get you out there, speaking through all channels and making you a media-publishing star with your message and content.

For NJ and PA event planners: We are not your typical speakers!

We are THE Preeminent Speakers Bureau in the Tri-State area, where aspiring Speakers of today become Professional Speakers of tomorrow.  Our pool of Qualified and not-yet-Qualified Speakers speak about a varied range of topics such as Leadership, Sales, Motivation / Inspiration, Social Media & Branding, and Employee Engagement delivered across a  broad range of styles (such as educational, edutainer, entertainer, motivational, but no matter what topic, all are engaging).

Speaker members, and especially Emerging Speakers Bureau Qualified Speakers, are consistently challenged and trained with the latest Professional Speaking skill development, Business and Marketing skills, and building exposure.  There are plenty of speakers who are experts, but think about the impact for your next meeting of having an expert that is also a Qualified Speaker!

…our speakers:

are put through a thorough evaluation process, and voted in by members. We strive to ensure our Qualified Speakers have stage presence, can engage their diverse audiences, and can talk to your groups and associations on the latest topics.

We constantly aim to challenge our Speakers, and encourage them to continue learning, diversify their skills, and stay relevant with the latest topics.  Many of our speakers are also authors, coaches, consultants, and have businesses of their own.  We encourage you to explore our site and to review the articles and videos of our Qualified Speakers presented here on the site.

Anyone can attend Speakers Bureau meetings (for a small fee each, or a discounted yearly fee), but few have the courage, ambition, and skill to become Qualified Speakers. Come to a meeting and check us out. It’s always entertaining, rich with educational presentations, and complete with diverse networking. Take your speaking career or your meetings to the next level – crank it up – by coming to visit us on the 2nd Wednesday of every month!

See the Speakers page for additional information on hiring our Speakers.  Check out our team page for all the Qualified Speakers.

See you at the next Crank-it-up Wednesday – the best way to spend 2 hours a month!
