How does a Professional Speakers Bureau operate?

Professional speakers bureaus act as a resource for people who plan meetings, conferences and special events. Bureaus have content experts on staff to bring speaker expertise to the attention of event planners and decision makers. Claxton Speakers International works with thousands of speakers, trainers and entertainers who are available to fulfill your talent requirements. We'll find the right solution for you. The fees for bureau services are included in the speaker's fee, so there are no hidden costs to you. After you have decided on a speaker and the speaker has accepted your invitation, CSI handles all the details. We issue the contract to the speaker and coordinate all of the details, including travel and accommodation requirements. It's as simple as that. When you work with us, you don't have to worry about any unexpected problems - we are available to assist you 24 hours a day.
