In 1995, Martin and Farah Perelmuter took an entrepreneurial leap of faith. They started Speakers’ Spotlight with a strong belief that the needs of conference organizers, meeting planners, and speakers could be served in new and better ways, and that a speech can be the catalyst for positive change. They also believed that if they built the business on a foundation of trust, then the strength of relationships with clients and speakers would ultimately determine the company’s success.
Speakers’ Spotlight began in a spare bedroom in Martin and Farah’s apartment, where they shared a desk, a phone, and a computer. They had no clients, no experience, no staff, and no money. But they had a clear vision, and a strong belief that with a lot of hard work and a little luck, they could make it a reality.
Since that time, Speakers’ Spotlight has grown into one of the world’s largest and most respected speakers’ agencies. With the best team in the industry, and an incredible roster of speakers, they are proud to have raised the bar of professionalism, service, and integrity to a new level.
To date, Speakers’ Spotlight has arranged more than 28,000 speaking engagements in over 35 countries worldwide, and has been fortunate to receive many awards and accolades along the way.
