In a perfect world, you would start the process of booking a speaker 6-12 months in advance of your event date. However, we know that this may not always be possible. Our event consultants are experienced working on much shorter time frames as well if you are in need of a last minute or replacement speaker. For busy times like Martin Luther King Jr. Day or Black History Month, it is much better if you are able to provide more lead time. The easiest thing to do is just to give us a call so we can help you through the details.
