Our Values

Our clients are at the centre of everything we do. Here's what we stand for at Speakers Corner!


Ideas and Advice

Impartial, expert knowledge

We do not exclusively represent any of our speakers or artists. This unique business model allows for a thoroughly impartial service where we have the freedom to base our recommendations on expert knowledge and long-term relationships with the individuals we work with.

Memorable events

Creating a legacy

We strive to create unique, memorable experiences for event attendees and to understand what our clients are hoping to ‘return’ from the event as a whole.

Supportive & Friendly

Caring for our clients

Our partnership approach when working with clients distinguishes us from a standard booking service. With a combined half century of industry experience, the team take great pride in providing support throughout the entire process of finding and booking a speaker, including date and fee negotiations.


Available 24/7

A Speakers Corner staff member is on call 24 hours a day to ensure that speakers reach events at every corner of the world at any time of day or night without a hitch. Don’t hesitate to pick up the phone to make an enquiry or ask a question about a booking – we’re here to look after you.


End-to-end service

As well as nurturing the relationship between client and speaker (pre-event briefing calls, communicating requirements, etc.), our logistics team arrange all transport, accommodation and technical needs related to an event.

Inspiring confidence

Our clients trust us

We will only recommend speakers who fit the bill perfectly. In order to help our clients extract maximum value, we go the extra mile to understand the specific objectives, desires and restrictions pertaining to a brief – including budgets! A top-quality speaker does not have to be an expensive one.

Our History

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.

    The first Sahara Group company, “Sahara Energy Resource Limited”, was founded in 1996 as an oil trading business focused on Nigerian and West African oil products. Today it incubates companies primarily in the energy sector.
