We evaluate speakers across 5-key characteristics that all USBI speakers should possess.
Here's what it takes...
USBI thrives on working with speakers and setting them up for success. Our Fuel, Ignite and Accelerate model ensures that your events will be supercharged and ultimately allow you to earn more, faster.
Here's what our clients have to say about our world class speakers:
"Siphiwe is invigorating! He is funny, full of energy but his lessons resonates within one's mind. He says one should not be the guest speaker in their own life, and should put in the hard work. He is a FORCE!!! I can't wait to listens to him again."
On booking: Siphiwe Moyo
" Caroline provided a great keynote that resonated well with our audience, its a fabulous insight into the complex juggle of finding a work life balance."

" Hiring Michael was the best thing we could have done to engage our audience and lighten the program with something other than a technical talk. We are so very pleased with Michaels ability to fit in and be a part of the success in reaching our goals for a fantastic event.

"As a returning Keynote speaker, Justice once again demonstrated his tremendous insight into the macro-political, social and economic realities facing businesses in South Africa and he tailored some of his address to respond to our sector in particular, which was greatly appreciated by our delegates."

USBI has been operating since 2009 in Africa and Europe. We are a relationship based bureau, not a transactional based bureau. We have developed a 5-star speaker model. That means that every speaker we recommend has reached our standards across 5 areas of professional competency to be at the top of their game. In addition our own model of Fuel, Ignite, Accelerate ensures your event is fuelled with the right preparation, speakers, intelligence and values. It would then be ignited on the day by our speaker carrying out their craft in a 5-star methodology to meet your requirements. Following the event we will accelerate the message by pre-agreed follow up systems and ensure you get the value long term of the message from our speakers.
All of our speakers are vetted before being accepted into our 5-star speaking model. We work to fuel, ignite and accelerate your career, by preparing you for international audiences, ensuring you have the relevant business advice to help your sustainability and growth through our partnership with The Octopus Ed-Tech Program and don’t forget, you will be in elite company. We are not looking to have speakers. We are looking for the right people, who meet our values and have a brilliant message and those are the people we will get behind.
We have strong values that we work to and our Fuel, Ignite, Accelerate model focusses on much more than just a transactional talk where you speak and get paid. We are the bridge that builds ongoing work for you and our customers, that could lead to consulting, coaching, training or bringing your whole eco-system to the client.
