Over the past few years, the Free Speakers organization referred several companies to me for presentations on various HR topics. I conducted some in person and a couple via the internet. Overall, I found the audiences to be interested and receptive.I had to discontinue my connection with Free Speakers due only to my business workload and personal schedule.Using Free Speakers is a good way to build your business relationships and contacts. I highly recommend Free Speakers!

This service was instrumental in getting my public speaking career started. I got many opportunities to do free talks and hone my skills, and now I am turning Pro!This is a great way to advertise yourself as a speaker in your area and get connected with event planners. I highly recommend the Free Speakers service. This is a well-run, finely tuned organization that will provide speakers opportunities to target groups they want to work with. The website is easy to use and update. Especially recommended for novice speakers wanting to gain experience. As the leader of a church SENIORS ministry, AZfreespeakers.org has been a huge resource. I have used bureau speakers 8 times on topics of interest to seniors and have been very pleased. Options are endless and speakers deliver as promised. When a group’s budget is small, having a pro bono resource such as this is a huge blessing. Any subject from Medicare to The Constitution, from long term care insurance to password security, our group has learned a lot. Thank you AZfreespeakers.org. You are a blessing.Wm. Gilkison SENIORS ministry leader

We had Ben Dooley present two of his courses during our leadership retreat virtually, and it was fun and interactive. Ben gave the team a lot of useful tips for self development and growth, and we talked about leadership cornerstones. Very thankful to the Freespeakers organization for allowing small businesses like ours access to such amazing speakers to help our teams. Highly recommend!!

I'm delighted to comment on my 10± year relationship with Freespeakers.org. Years ago as a nonprofit event organizer constantly in search of speakers willing to present in gratis; Freespeakers.org provided an array of great speakers with relevant and interesting topics that added so much to the success of our organization's member events. Later, as a consultant seeking new connections and opportunities to share my knowledge and experience to help others I found a steady flow of opportunities to give back to the community.Both experiences over the years with Freespeakers.org have been professionally rewarding in numerous ways. In planning meetings and events, they offer an endless source of great speakers to organizations. As a speaker, I've been afforded an opportunity to sharpen my skills continually and contribute beneficial service to groups as I seek to give back!In my opinion, Freespeakers.org has created the ultimate WIN-WIN situation for all!

This is a great organization that allows you to deliver your speeches to organizations that are not only looking for content, but are appreciative of your time and efforts. It is solid preparation for more speaking opportunities and for gaining more exposure. I have been giving Free Speeches on Free Speakers Bureau since January 2007 and have never, ever found it to be a fruitless exercise. The costs per person or organization are zero, and my speeches have taken on a very special aura that only I can perfect and present. I have gone all over in the greater Chicago area and have also traveled downstate on a few occasions. It has been fun and very enjoyable for me and for my listeners, all of whom have responded favorably on many messages. Please give them your time and effort in helping them give you a good break on speakers. Terry Abrahamson, author of the children’s book The Blues Parade, presented a virtual program for our group of educators. Terry’s program was engaging, informative and fun! Educators walked away with multiple ideas for engaging ways to introduce children to the history of the Blues. I would highly recommend Terry’s program. I put my name out on Freespeakers.org and the number of my speaking engagements rose significantly. Everything from libraries, to historical societies, to assisted living centers, I was able to grow my organization’s outreach in both number of individuals served, but also geographical diversity. FreeSpeakers is a great way to find great speakers as presenters at our organization. Our non-profit organization has used this service numerous times to find high level speakers at no cost.. We have never been disappointed and will continue to use them. I used FreeSpeakers.org for a number of years and got opportunities that I wouldn't have been able to access otherwise. While my speaking career has taken a different direction and I no longer am listed on the site, I can definitely recommend the service especially for new speakers looking to connect with local business event organizers.

Great value and support with multiple high value speaking requests from National Associations.

Great resource! As a ghostwriter, I always recommend Free Speakers to authors eager to share their wisdom and knowledge. I've found it to be a great resource to connect to audiences like rotary clubs, professional organizations, libraries, writers groups, and others interested in finding speakers on their topics. It can definitely help build your speaking portfolio. I've gotten several speaking engagements annually. And knowing its a nonprofit, it's win-win, well worth the small annual fee. Mike Shereck was a great speaker for our Kiwanis group. He made sure that our members were engaged, listened to, and heard. I would highly recommend him. I am looking forward to having two other Free Speakers at upcoming events!

Excellent platform! Excellent management! And great opportunities. I encourage it for all aspiring speakers. I have used Free Speech Speakers Bureau several times for our Chicago-area Mensa group's monthly gathering. Each may have been free, but each has been as professional as those we've hired who had a high fee. Every one of them has arrived on time, been fully prepared, given a fascinating presentation, and been very personable in chatting with interested people who stuck around after the "official" part of the night's duties. They're so good that it makes me feel guilty they are doing it for free! I have used Free Speech Speakers Bureau several times for our Chicago-area Mensa group's monthly gathering.

This is a great service and I really enjoy all the opportunities that it provides for organizations to get good speakers to come in and share their expertise.

If you are looking for a platform that is going to give you visibility and an opportunity to hone your craft, this is the place to do it. Great platform with a wide-reaching audience. I highly recommend being a part of Free Speakers.

I joined FreeSpeakers last week and already have a request for a speech. That is faster than I expected. I am looking forward to more requests. Free Speakers gave my dog Sadie and me an excellent opportunity to hone our speaking skills. We highly recommend them! The Rotary Club of Hinsdale-Oak Brook Sunrise has been using FreeSpeech for the last 15 years and found the speakers to be interesting, knowledgeable and reliable which is important for a 7:00 a.m. meeting After 9 years of heading the chamber, it gets challenging to come up with new ideas for speakers for our luncheons and Women in Business networking breakfasts! When I discover Chicago.freespeakers, I was delighted! We've had a couple good and interesting speakers out and a couple more are booked. This is a great resource as I book 22 speakers annually. Also, as I hear good speakers that aren't yet on this site, I tell them about it and am gratified to now see them listed. It's a win/win! I've been a featured speaker for Free Speakers for years now. If you like to speak in front of groups, it's a great way to get your name out there, get in... Free Speakers has been a terrific resource in booking speakers for our annual conference. I've used a number of their speakers over the past several years and have been very pleased with their presentations. This year we used 4 different speakers, all of them were very well received. We will continue to use this valuable resource in the years to come. Thank you Free Speakers!!Jeanie Sommers -- Northern Illinois TOPS Area Conference
Testimonials from Speakers
“During the past 6 years. I have had the opportunity to speak to over 200 groups, including over 40 organizations who contacted me through your website.
Most of the groups who contacted me were in the Chicago and Milwaukee areas. But in addition to many local and regional organizations who contacted me about speaking to their group, there were also some national and international organizations who saw information about me and my presentations on the FreeSpeakers.org website, and they invited me to speak to their groups.
It was easy to work with Free Speakers. Your system is set up so that a wide variety of groups learned about my presentations. Those organizations could then very easily contact me to make a presentation to their group. Once I was invited to speak to a group, it was easy to work out the details of the presentation with the person who contacted me through Free Speakers.
One thing I really liked about being a part of Free Speakers is that it broadened the scope of my potential audiences. And finally, it was always easy to work with Free Speakers.”
