About Personally Speaking

We find the right speaker for you. Between us our team has over 25 years’ experience bringing together well-known, entertaining and expert speakers with organisations looking to stimulate thinking and spark action.

We believe the most inspiring and memorable experiences come at the points where ideas, knowledge, curiosity and people intersect. This is where you get traction, connection and meaning that goes beyond the obvious.  It’s also where you get audiences to sit up and listen.

What we do

We advise, research and source speakers or hosts for conferences, board meetings, masterclasses, speaker series, awards ceremonies, ambassador roles, podcasts and more. Our expertise lies in helping you to engage with staff, clients, partners or the general public in meaningful, memorable ways.

Speakers

We understand how important it is for you to find the right speaker—one who aligns with your brand, understands the purpose of the occasion, is within your budget and, most importantly, adds value. And we will find that person for you.

We enjoy long-term relationships with both our speakers and clients around the world. Behind the scenes we are continuously researching new speakers, working with our international networks, attending events and trialing new approaches. We love to learn and we love to bring fresh ideas to our loyal customers.

“Personally Speaking replied to emails within minutes even though there was a 7 hour time difference. This was our first time using a speaking agent located outside of the USA, but the whole experience was stress-free.”

“Many thanks to you Frances and your team for assisting us in organising this wonderful conference. David McWilliams' speech was fantastic and very well received by the audience.”
