There are many benefits to working with a famous sports personality, public figure, celebrity or athlete. Not only can they help raise awareness and generate a tremendous amount of excitement for your company, product, or event, but they can provide instant credibility and trust in your product and confidence in your brand name. The potential of working with a celebrity is limitless if you understand how to leverage the relationship and maximize the value of the celebrity.
Imagine having a retired sports star or celebrity, like Magic Johnson, play a round of golf with your clients. How about having Jack Nicklaus or Arnold Palmer spend a few hours at your corporate hospitality tent or luxury suite with your most valuable customers? Imagine Pat Riley or Mike Ditka motivating your sales force or spending a few days with your top executives at a corporate retreat. At All American Speakers, your imagination is the only limitation.
A number of members of our team have spent years representing celebrity talent as agents or managers and are now using their expertise on behalf of companies and corporations who seek to secure the services of celebrity entertainers or professional athletes. All American Speakers focuses on bringing together and forging partnerships between Corporate America and celebrities, and leveraging those relationships to the mutual benefit of both our clients and to the celebrities themselves. We have worked on a number of high profile celebrity product endorsements, celebrity spokesperson campaigns and athlete endorsements. We are a combination speakers bureau, celebrity booking agency, talent supplier, corporate consultant and celebrity marketing firm.
All American Speakers was founded by Greg Friedlander in 2002.

“Our experience as agents and managers gives us a greater understanding of the needs of both the celebrities and our clients alike. Having worked on both sides of this business (representing talent and now representing clients who seek to secure celebrities) gives us a unique insight that allows us to negotiate mutually beneficial deals that all sides can be happy with. Our relationships with athletes, agents, managers and PR firms allow us access to the most comprehensive roster of celebrities, sports personalities and entertainers available anywhere.”
