Speakers' Bureau

Our agency also promotes authors' work by securing speaking engagements and planning press parties. We arrange press parties, such as the press party for Penny Baird's Bringing Paris Home at Kate's Paperie and the Museum of the City of New York. We arranged the press party for Eileen Lane Antiques with the Consul General of Sweden, Mamma Mia, press, and celebrities.

We secure speaking engagements for talented, high-profile authors.  We are committed to connecting our authors with quality organizations and orchestrating educational and meaningful events.  We make certain that speakers are fully informed on the organization’s mission and where and when they need to arrive.
