We’re a speakers bureau on a mission to change the world by helping our clients put the right speaker in front of the right audience at the right time.

Our story

Speakers Spotlight began with the belief that a speech can be a catalyst for positive change.

In 1995, Martin and Farah Perelmuter took an entrepreneurial leap of faith. They launched Speakers Spotlight out of their spare bedroom, armed with only one desk, one phone, and one computer. They had no clients, experience, staff, or money, but they had a clear vision.

They believed that the right speaker in front of the right audience could create lasting impact, and that event planners, speakers, and audiences could be served in new and better ways.

Our core beliefs and values

Since 1995, our core beliefs and values have guided us in everything we do:

We are passionate and compassionate people.

We value relationships more than transactions.

We respect intelligence, not arrogance.

We do everything with the long term in mind.

We take work seriously, but not ourselves too seriously.

We believe impact is the best measurement of our success.

Our difference

We’ve adopted a unique philosophy for our business that is the foundation of everything we do.

We understand that speakers should exemplify the values of our clients and their organizations. They should be relevant, timely, aligned with your objectives, and, of course, within budget. 

It’s easy to find hundreds, if not thousands, of speakers on any given topic. The tough part is knowing if they’re any good, and, more importantly, if they’re right for your event. That’s where we come in. 

We listen to our clients’ needs and objectives and combine that with our collective knowledge and experience to find the perfect speaker for your audience. Here’s how we do it:
