“I have had the opportunity to attend many conferences that featured speakers. Some experiences were great and the speakers helped maintain and sometimes even lift the energy of the audience. Unfortunately, I’ve seen speakers do the exact opposite as well. One of the conferences I attended had a speaker that the Intelligentsia Agency brokers for and they were excellent. The speaker provided the energy and motivation that was fitting to the theme of our conference. We left the auditorium energized and continued to talk about how great he was days and even months afterwards. To know that there is an organization that will help match a speaker to your program- and consistently evaluate their message, their conduct, and overall interaction to ensure you are only getting the best experience, is definitely an organization worth working with. I have already referred The Intelligentsia to several clients that are responsible for planning conferences and special events and I will continue to do so."
