Base your confidence on the company we keep

Can we do the heavy lifting?

Here’s our 3-step process to confirm your presenter.


We listen to you

In our first brainstorm session, we’ll want to know your meeting’s theme, what you’re hoping to accomplish via this keynote slot, and speakers who have been successful for this audience in the past.

Tailor-made suggestions

We’ll share with you a list of available, on-point, and in-budget candidates for your review including video links. Should a pre-booking call with any speaker be requested, that’s easily accomplished.

Contracting and Logistics

Once you decide on your keynote speaker, we prepare an agreement that protects your investment. Our logistics team then goes to work to ensure your promotional needs are met as well as any travel logistics leading up to your successful event.

Our raving reviews

Thank you for all you did with booking Magic Johnson and being on site with him. It was so refreshing meeting you in person and having the service you provided. That was an invaluable experience for me and my team and I cannot thank you enough. Magic was amazing – there could not have been a better fit for our conference. Honestly, Mr. Johnson and Mel Robbins complemented each other better than I could have ever dreamt. The two of them made our conference.

Our team has been working with Rave Speakers as a trusted resource for all of our keynote presenters at all of our events. They come in on-budget and are always there to support us. Rave Speakers is excellent to work with and an awesome partner.

Heidi Pascale
Senior Director of Experiental Marketing and Training, ASSA ABLOY Door Security Solutions

I just wanted to express my appreciation for having the opportunity to have Alex Honnold speak to my senior leadership group this morning. Alex was amazing: funny, articulate, open, humble, and very engaging. My group loved him and his presentation. Please let Alex know how much we appreciated him and his accomplishments, most notably his charitable foundation.

Robert Darby
CEO, Berkshire Hathaway Homestate

To say Janet Evans inspired me is an understatement. I had the great honor of being in the stadium in 1996 when the torch relay took place and have fond memories of the torch being handed by Janet to Muhammad Ali. Little did I know that amazing woman would come back later in life to inspire me with her version of the event. Thank you for your diligent efforts to bring Janet's story to us.

HR Directors

Rave Speakers' many bookings over the years for SHRM (Society of Human Resource Management) audiences at both the national and regional levels keep us informed as to those presenters and those topics your Human Resource audiences will want to hear from today. Hiring & Retention, DEI, and Culture are frequently requested topics.

Many times our "customer" is not the Meeting Professional at a Fortune 500 company; it's the CEO or the President looking for a specific presenter to motivate the team. Those requests tend to lean more towards the higher profile speakers--like Jim Collins or Magic Johnson or Simon Sinek--and our abilities to deliver any speaker on the planet shine through bright and clear in these instances.

Executive Assistants

An executive assistant at a company or a professional association will often be gathering information for the meeting planning team. With a mutual goal of enhancing a meeting with a memorable presenter, we work hand in hand with executive assistants to achieve this end result. If we need to share multiple available speaker options at varying price points for the team to decide on, that's exactly why we're here!

To ensure the successful delivery of our speakers, Rave Speakers is onsite at hundreds of our customers' meetings each year. We're not just backstage in the Green Room with your speaker; we are sitting in the audience watching your attendees' reactions to your presenter and taking notes. We are already thinking ahead so you can be successful at your next meeting.
