Fueled by her passion for managing and coaching professional speakers, our Founder and President Michelle Joyce created the company in 2015.
With an unconditional love for the professional speaking industry, and more than two decades of speaker management experience, Michelle effectively connects audiences and speakers, resulting in a memorable experience every time.
She is a proven, trusted industry professional and is often called on to share her knowledge. Prior to starting the company, she managed one of the most successful professional speaking and training businesses in the country. In that role, she sold thousands of customized and personalized events to companies and associations all over the globe. She generated new, additional revenue streams, and created ongoing marketing and creative strategies to stay top of mind and attract new business. Michelle also designed specific tools and processes to ensure a flawless event for her speakers and her customers.
Michelle has been acknowledged in several business books for input, ideas, and expertise; and her articles have appeared in a variety of blogs and newsletters. She is an active, professional member of the National Speakers Association (NSA) and the International Association of Speaker Bureaus (IASB).
In 2018, Michelle received the IASB Pace Setter Award for introducing a new program or service that moved the association forward. In 2020, Michelle was awarded the IASB Dottie Walters Helping Hands Award for recognition of exceptional willingness to assist others in the bureau and speaker management industry.
When she’s not managing or coaching speakers, Michelle can be found cooking and baking for one of her famous parties; traveling and seeking new adventures; or spending time on the lake with her beautiful family and their spoiled-rotten labradoodle.
