In order to establish a relationship with Gold Stars Speakers Bureau®, a speaker must already be an established, proven speaker, and have a video demo and digital literature demonstrating the speaker’s expertise and services. If you are a beginning speaker or trainer, we will only consider you if you are highly recommended by an established and proven speaker.
