ur Mission

We want to solve the biggest problems facing professional speakers, coaches and consultants today. Our journey begins with the launch of the first dedicated resource for professional speakers to manage, promote and grow their expertise-based businesses.

About Us

There has always been a lack of organised, dedicated resources to help expertise-based entrepreneurs such as professional speakers and coaches start, grow and maintain their businesses, develop their personal brands and promote their books, courses and other products and offerings.

The devastating impact of the global COVID-19 pandemic has added to these problems as many speakers saw engagements and events shutting down globally, bringing into sharp relief the lack of additional streams of income and alternative ways to carry on delivering value to their clients.

Universal Speaker Group

Founded by Speakers Associates and Talent Marketing Company, Universal Speaker Group (USG) was created to provide solutions to the impact that these problems have on the livelihoods and businesses of professional speakers, coaches, consultants, authors and trainers. Some of the key features USG incorporates include:

  • The Speakers Associates client portal allows speakers, consultants, coaches, authors and trainers to maintain their own biography on the global speaker bureau roster.
  • Membership of Parle, the private social network for thought leaders and business thinkers.
  • Access to marketing resources, strategies, tactics and services to help grow any expertise-led business.
