When MD Nick Gold joined in 2004, Speakers Corner was a small family business. He immediately started cultivating a vision of turning it from its fledgling position in the after dinner entertainment world, into a leading international speaker bureau.
With masses of optimism; bucketloads of coffee, and a world of determination to grow the business, he employed some clever and hardworking people; rented an office, and suddenly it became a reality. Speakers were coming on board, clients were showing an interest…and we were off!
By the time his brother Tim came on board as director in 2007, the business was competing with the top speaker bureaux in the country.
Now a thriving, growing company, the skilled team has over 40 years of industry experience and an expansive knowledge of the best international motivational speakers, after dinner speakers, conference facilitators, keynote speakers and awards hosts.
Working with speakers from politics, sport, business, TV and comedy, Speakers Corner provides genuinely impartial advice on the ideal speaker. We don’t manage anyone exclusively and we will only recommend those who fit the bill perfectly. We plan and manage the negotiations, contracts and logistics, and go above and beyond to make the process seamless and the event a success.
As part of the Penguin Business Experts series, Nick's first book 'Speaking With Confidence', was published in November 2020 packed full of expert advice and tips to help anyone who has to speak in front of an audience.
