Our history

Celebrity Speakers Bureau was established to provide experts to educate and entertain the country's corporate leaders. The company quickly expanded to represent facilitators, trainers, comedians and entertainers.

Over time, to satisfy growing demand, Celebrity Speakers Bureau began to offer training and workshops on speaking, delivering presentations and media skills for chairmen, chief executives, and senior managers in both the public and private sectors

Today, 40 years on, and under the leadership of David Maher, Celebrity Speakers Bureau remains at the forefront of the industry, working with leading Australian and international clients, speakers and entertainers.

From unique offices at History House in Macquarie Street, Sydney, David and his team draw on their collective professional experience in finance, sales, marketing and entertainment to work closely with clients, understand their objectives and offer innovative solutions to meet their speaking and entertaining needs.

We consult to a wide range of clients, from Prime Ministers to global corporations, who need fresh ideas about how to effectively communicate their messages. Working hand in hand, we plan and implement the most appropriate strategy, taking into account issues including objectives, characteristics of the target audience, the desired message, competitive ‘noise’, budget and timing.

As a member of the International Association of Speakers’ Bureaus, Celebrity Speakers Bureau has international affiliations with leading speakers’ bureaus across the globe. This valuable network allows us access to powerful and influential international speakers including the Dalai Lama, Bill Clinton and George W Bush, Henry Kissinger and Neil Armstrong.

Australia's preferred speakers' bureau

In 2009 Celerity Speaker Bureau was selected as the preferred speakers’ bureau by The Australia Day Council of NSW. In its capacity as preferred speakers’ bureau, Celebrity Speakers is appointed to identify, brief and book speakers for the many events hosted by the Council throughout the year, including the annual Australia Day address.
