Welcome to our new international users!

Welcome to our new international users! 2560 1537 I Need A Speaker

Last week, I Need A Speaker welcomed new users from London. We are so excited about this international expansion, as it broadens our options for the people we joyfully serve.

We have had inquiries about whether people from outside the US can join the I Need A Speaker community (YES!), and we have been asked if event organizers can book people from other countries (YES!).

Today, video conferencing services allow interaction among people from all geographic areas, and virtual event planners won’t need to budget for travel costs.

We look forward to welcoming more international users soon!

Some announcements are more exciting than others. Move this one to the exciting category, because it will change the way event planners find speakers and the way speakers book future engagements.

I Need A Speaker is not a speakers’ bureau. It’s a new, easy way for speakers of all experience levels to connect with audiences. We like to think of ourselves as the leaders of an intellectual flash mob … knowledge brokers … inspiration disseminators.
