What Happens When You Contact Us!
When you contact us, we will listen to your needs,
requirements, and budget limitations. We will then begin a search in
our extensive database, and may also call on our alliance resources, to find
the best persons that may fulfill your needs.
We will send you a list of suggested presenters,
their fees (based on the type and length of presentation you desire),
and links to their pages on our website. You can then read their
biographies and view their demo videos on our website. For you convenience, we have
posted their demos at two speeds, the lower for those who do not
have high-speed Internet access.
If there are any special presenters that you are
interested in, if they are not in our database, we will be glad to
do the research for you.
When you settle on a speaker who best meets your
requirements, we will send you and the presenter a contract.
Payment for the Speaker
When you pay your
deposit and balance for the speaker, your funds are held in an
escrow account. We consider this to be your money and not the
speaker’s until the presentation is completed. For a few celebrity
speakers, we are required to pay in advance or they will refuse the

Pros and Cons of Exclusive Representation
Pros: Some speakers are
exclusively represented by a single speakers bureau. Exclusive
representation means that the exclusive bureau manages all of that
speaker's engagements and are experts on their exclusive speakers.
By working with an exclusive bureau, you are working with the
organization that has a vested interest in pushing their exclusive
speakers over any others who would be best for your organization.
You will not get an unbiased opinion on the speaker’s capabilities,
strengths, and weaknesses. Using an independent speakers bureau,
such as Gold Stars Speakers Bureau, gives you the confidence that we
will select the best speaker for your needs. We live by our motto,
Word is Gold!™" Additionally, we can get you nearly all
exclusive speakers and we will be glad to get you in direct touch
with the speakers you book.

suited for the speaking business. She has a B.S. degree in Mass

covers the areas of print and electronic media, newspaper reporting
and photo-journalism, editing, sales, public relations, marketing,
publishing, mail order, and executive management. She claims she

claims they were all for good reasons. She embraces constant
self-improvement in her own life.
Andrea is the author of three children's audio tapes with booklets,
and has been published in national magazines. She has adventured

organizations achieve greater success by providing well-matched
excellent speakers and pleasant, straight-forward, creative, and
