Ed Victor Speakers Bureau is a new venture from veteran literary agent Ed Victor. With 35 years experience in the literary world, Victor has created the speakers bureau to represent a selection of the agencys clients for their public speaking engagements, as well as a number of popular UK celebrity speakers, including Alastair Campbell, Gyles Brandreth, Nigella Lawson and Michael Portillo.
The new speakers bureau will offer a range of celebrity speakers, UK and internationally based, for corporate events, awards ceremonies, after-dinner speeches, panels, keynote addresses, and more. Unlike the average speakers bureau, Ed Victor speakers will benefit from the strong working relationships Victor has built up with his clients, and are committed to the agencys values of integrity, transparency and accountability. It is hoped that the new speakers bureau will be able to leverage the esteemed reputation that has made Victor the number one choice for the memoirs of many a famous UK celebrity. Speakers such as Nigella Lawson are already said to command fees of above 100,000.
As compared to another top speakers bureau, Victor is confident that his team can deliver any UK celebrity speaker, whether politician, explorer, journalist or television personality, at the best possible value, as well as ensuring the fairest terms and the highest level of transparency. Ed Victor Speakers Bureau also has employed a travel team to handle logistics and ensure maximum efficiency with minimal stress for the speaker and the buyer.
Looking forward, the speakers bureau will focus on building relationships with the top buyers of talent in the UK and Europe, to whom they can offer a trusted name, competitive fees, and a commitment to evenhanded but firm negotiation and follow-through. This, together with a steadily increasing exclusive and non-exclusive speakers list, will ensure that Ed Victor Speakers Bureau will be a strong force in the UK celebrity speakers market in 2011 and beyond.
