"Executive Speakers Bureau delivers the expertise of a global leader with the personal attention of a small firm."


Executive Speakers Bureau, founded by Angela Schelp in July 1993, is headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee. In 2001, Richard Schelp joined the bureau as a co-owner. At the turn of the century, Executive Speakers Bureau expanded its business to clients outside of the U.S. Today, Executive Speakers Bureau is considered one of the top bureaus in the country. We offer hundreds of national keynote speakers as well as speakers local to the client's venue to help meet the individual needs of each organization with which we work. Customer service is our number one priority. We take pride in our ability to provide world class service as well as our ability to deliver today's foremost professional speakers and expert trainers to clients around the world. It is our commitment to provide our clients with unparalleled service, access to hundreds of motivational speakers worldwide and individualized personal attention.

Needs Assessment

We work with corporations, associations and other clientele to assess need, to understand their particular organization, to determine budgetary guidelines and to listen to what they really want their attendees to get out of a session. We then conduct research using our extensive database, experience and expertise in the speaking industry to find our client the perfect speaker.

We charge no fee to our client for our research and advice service. We are considered a liaison between the client and the speaker, providing the leading speakers from academia, business, politics, sports and other industries for corporate events and private functions throughout the world. We are compensated by the keynote speaker, not the clients, and only for the engagements we secure for them.

Value Added Services

We offer expert advice, ideas and professional service. In the event of an unforeseen emergency, Executive Speakers Bureau will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to provide you with emergency contingency plans.

We can recommend each professional speaker with confidence because we go to extremes to make sure the speaker is excellent on stage and a consummate professional who is easy to work with.We carefully check references, as well as review all materials and videos for each and every speaker. We realize the importance of finding the perfect match for both the keynote speaker and the client. It is through this careful process that we are able to best serve our clients.
