Greg Friedlander founded All American Speakers after leaving his career in talent representation. While working in NYC for A-list sports celebrities he saw a striking imbalance of power between talent agents and event planners. All American Speakers was launched in 2002 with a simple mission that still holds true today --- to provide representation to meeting & event planners, working on behalf of their best interests 100% of the time.

If you’ve never worked with a Full-Service Talent Booking Agency, here’s what to expect...
First, you will be matched with an agent who specializes in the type of talent you are interested in booking (or an agent who specializes in your particular event/audience type). Your agent will contact you to learn more details about your event or campaign, including your goals and objectives.
Next, your agent will develop a customized list of ideal entertainment or speaker recommendations that meet your requirements. You will use our proprietary speaker selection software to review your custom proposal, which will include talent fee and travel requirements, talent background, speech topics, and video clips to assist you in narrowing down the options.
When you have narrowed down your choices, your agent will confirm availability and work with you to submit a firm offer to the talent of your choice.
During the firm offer phase, your agent works to negotiate the terms and services that are important to your organization. Once negotiations are complete and contracts are fully executed, you will work with a full-time logistics manager who will assist you with pre-event and on-site talent logistics management.
Your agent is always monitoring your event as the date approaches, and is ready and willing to step in when needed - their priority is to make your job easier and ensuring your event is a success.
