The Only Speakers Bureau to Focus Exclusively on Franchising
We Make This Easy for You
At Franchise Speakers, our mission is to help franchisors create a fabulous experience for their franchisees. We listen actively and respond quickly with carefully selected speaker/ trainer/ emcee/ entertainer options based on desired learning objectives. And through the process, we make sure that the presenter options offered for review will connect with the culture of the system and the feeling, tone, and energy of the event.
Franchise Speakers was launched in 2008, when founder, Katrina Mitchell, a successful franchisee herself, saw the need for a franchise industry speakers bureau that would help franchisors find the perfect speakers, trainers, facilitators, emcees and entertainers to authentically connect with their franchisees.
As franchise specialists, the Franchise Speakers team works with clients in two ways:
- We supply hand-picked matches based on each franchisor’s content objectives as well as the culture of their system.
- Franchisors assign Franchise Speakers to research, vet and manage speakers who may be of interest.
In either scenario, there is no fee to the franchisor for Franchise Speakers’ services as the speakers pay a commission when placed. Franchise Speakers seamlessly becomes part of the convention planning team and takes all the stress and worry out of the myriad details involved in working with outside talent.
How We Rock the Franchise World
Franchise Speakers has their process dialed in! They brought us the perfect list of speaker options to choose from, all of which fit our theme, learning objectives and budget perfectly. Their questionnaires and checklists made the pre-event planning so easy and was definitely a big part of the overall success of this year’s conference. There’s a sense of ease and confidence that comes with this level of professionalism and we’re grateful to have Franchise Speakers on our side.
Working with Franchise Speakers is an absolute pleasure in every way. They listen carefully and provide the perfect solutions to meet our learning objectives, timing and budget. We consider Katrina and the entire Franchise Speakers team a valued partner in helping us help our franchisees succeed. If you are a franchisor and are not working with Franchise Speakers, you should be!
VP of Training and Development
Katrina and the team at Franchise Speakers have been helping us source fantastic, franchise-smart, speakers & trainers for more than 5 years -whether live or virtual! Everyone they send us is phenomenal and it’s a pleasure to work with an agency that really understands the franchise industry. Not only do they deliver amazing experts at the right price, they make it all EASY! We love working with Katrina and her team!
When I make an investment in a speaker, we get one shot; it’s a sizable investment in what could be a HUGE miss. As it turns out, working with Franchise Speakers was one of the best decision of my professional career! Katrina’s guidance and expertise took the guesswork out of the process, and ensured that my investment was a HUGE HIT instead. The value the speakers brought to the conference was incredible. Almost all of our franchisees came up to us and said, “This is by far the best conference we have ever had!” and they are a pretty discerning bunch. There isn’t anything Franchise Speakers could have done better – and we’re already looking forward to working with them next year!
