Our aim is to help clients all around the world find the perfect academic speaker for their next conference, public/private sector event, or boardroom advisory session, online or in person.
Who we are
The Academic Speakers Bureau is the UK’s first speakers' bureau which has an exclusive focus on speakers with distinguished academic careers and has been developed by the London School of Economics and Political Science, the world's leading social science institution.
Academic speakers are equipped with specialist knowledge, skills, and experience in a wide range of fields. Our aim is to help clients all around the world find the perfect academic speaker for their next conference, public/private sector event, or boardroom advisory session, online or in person.
Our commitment is to help clients easily engage with world-renowned academics without getting involved in overly complicated and time-consuming contract negotiation processes.
We recognise that academics not only contribute to global conversations but also actively shape them. Working with both public and private sector clients, we are dedicated to facilitating the exchange of ideas and knowledge. The Academic Speakers Bureau is our effort to build further on both these principles and connect clients from diverse sectors with academics from institutions all around the world.
How we work
- Browse through our speakers or categories and find the right speaker for your needs
- Express interest in a specific speaker or topic
- Get connected with our team to discuss your requirements and learn about the availability of the requested speaker
- Go over pre-set pricing, contract terms and book the speaker you desire!
It is your event we are here to support. While clients get busy designing and executing events, we are here to help liaise with speakers you want to engage before, during and after your event.
Types of Events
We can help you find the right academic for a speaking engagement in the style of a conference, public/private sector event, boardroom advisory session, and more.
In the light of the ongoing pandemic and shifting global travel and other restrictions, our academics are happy to engage in in-person or online events.
