Speakersbase: Public Speaking Business

Johnny Beirne interviewed me on the excellent Speakersbase Podcast. We talked about my public speaking business, Confident Presenting on the 23rd September, 2019.

With over 20 years in online business experience, Johnny Beirne developed Knowledgebase, a best-in-class knowledge resource for speakers and event organisers. Johnny is also an Online Course Creator & Coach and supports speakers with creating, marketing and selling their own online courses.

Speakersbase was founded in late 2016 with one goal in mind: to connect public speakers and event organizers with each other. For free.

Since then, they have also developed Knowledgebase, which is becoming the definitive source of knowledge for speakers.

Speakific and Public Speaking

Speakersbase acquired the Speakific.com online booking platform.  The merged business now operates under the Speakersbase brand. As a result, Speakific users can avail of more features, services and access to international representation.

Speakific was founded by Johnny Beirne and Fergal Donlon in 2014.  The aim? To take the pain out of finding that specific speaker for a specific event. It has since grown to be the largest speaker source in Ireland. Beyond Ireland, Speakific has a vast user base in the UK and other English-speaking countries around the globe.

On the Speakersbase platform, public speakers can create an online public speaking portfolio for free. Speakersbase enables them to share their public speaking business activities with their audience and event organisers. By keeping their profile up to date, they help speakers establish themselves as true thought leaders.

Looking for a Speaker

If you’re looking to book a public speaker, you can use the search function or launch a Call For Speakers. By doing so, you can save weeks worth of your time to find the right public speaker. Their targeted search ensures that you will receive a list of qualified speakers.  Normally at least three,  who are available, can speak on your requested topic, and fall within your budget.
