Dedication, passion, and success are what we guarantee.

In 1979, Diane Goodman founded The Goodman Speakers Bureau. As a leading expert in the professional speaking industry, many speakers have come to Diane over the years for guidance in building their speaking careers. Given all her knowledge and expertise, it was a natural progression to provide a speaker management service.

In early 2015, Goodman Speaker Management, LLC was formally announced. Today, we are honored to represent professional speakers who create positive change in people’s lives, personally and professionally. We are proud to work with a group of carefully selected speakers who share their unique experiences, insights, and strategies with audiences. Our speakers educate, energize, inspire, and shift traditional thinking.

We work closely with meeting professionals, speaker’s bureaus, and talent agencies to determine the specific purpose and goal for each event to ensure that our speaker is the right fit.
