About Gold Stars Speakers Bureau®

Background

Gold Stars Speakers Bureau™ is a division of Dynamic Pathways, Inc. Gold Stars Speakers Bureau™ has been in operation since 1989, successfully serving corporations, associations and government agencies worldwide.

Our Purpose

To provide the best quality speakers, entertainers, trainers, and celebrities that meet your needs and are within your budget—delivered within the context of a caring relationship with the highest integrity, innovation, gold-star-quality service and with an appetite for fun.

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 booking.

Our Aim and Our Uniqueness

·          To make a difference by providing presenters who can make a difference in your organization.

·          To deliver the best choices and make this a fun and enjoyable experience for both of us!

·          To be the most honest, trustworthy, and caring speakers bureau.

·          To be increasingly well known as the most innovative, responsive and reliable speakers bureau for meeting your speaking and training needs at your meetings and conventions.

·          To be best known for treating you, our clients, as valued friends.

We are known for delivering professional service in the spirit of excellence and enjoyment along with creative suggestions. We specialize in straight talk — suggesting business speakers, entertainers, trainers, and celebrities who will help your people to transform your organization into a dynamic and successful future. Special areas include future trends, change, and business and personal development. Our speakers are on the cutting-edge of tomorrow – offering the latest information and ideas, in addition to unusual or different approaches. We feel very strongly about giving you a solid and honest return on your investment. No hype — no pressure!

We also offer you nearly every exclusive speaker from exclusive agents and bureaus, through our long-standing alliances in the industry.

Our Valued Friends

We serve the meeting, convention, training, entertainment, facilitation, and consulting needs of corporations, associations, and government organizations throughout the world. We want you to also be our valued friend, and we make the entire speaker selection process more effective and fun for you!

Education and Entertainment

We know that everyone fears a "boring" speaker. We filter them out. Naturally, our speakers will not only educate your audience — they will also entertain them as well. Whether you have a program already designed or want help in designing one, we will be glad to assist you in creating that perfect, memorable program for your meeting and convention needs. Call or email us and let's discuss your needs, now.

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.

Cons: 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, "Our 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.
