Speakersbase Blog



Speakersbase is an online platform for public speakers, event organizers and organizations.

Speakersbase is a start-up founded in October 2016 by four seasoned entrepreneurs. Three public speakers and an expert in website development decided to provide a solution to a need which many public speakers felt: the lack of a central platform where everything concerning public speaking can be stored. Combined with the need for an online marketplace for event organizers and public speakers, Speakersbase saw the light of day.

We help public speakers by creating a profile page that speakers can use as their online public speaking portfolio. Through their page, speakers can be booked directly. There is no exclusivity, nor are there booking fees. We are also creating an online and offline community of public speakers, called Speakers For Speakers, which aims to connect public speakers with each other and provide them with useful information about public speaking.

Our platform lets event organizers create events to book public speakers on. Are you looking for an interesting speaker for your next event? Create an event page on Speakersbase and book public speakers through our database of public speakers. You can add booked public speakers to your line-up in the event page.

Speakersbase provides different formulas for organizations that want to claim thought leadership about a certain topic. Want to learn more? Contact us: info@speakersbase.com!
