Canada's Original Speakers Bureau
NSB represents Canada’s best list of news makers, thought leaders and icons on the speaking platform.
We are Canada’s original speakers bureau founded almost 40 years ago. As Canada’s most experienced and engaged bureau we are leaders in the speaking industry and have the most experienced team of agents, the largest list of Canadian exclusive speakers, everyone from well-known celebrities to national and world experts and with access to other speakers around the world.
We are partners in providing speakers and advice to meeting planners with associations, governments, universities, businesses and community groups for conferences and events
A look through the National Speakers Bureau's roster reads as a "Who's Who", featuring many of the leading speakers, experts, entertainers and opinion-makers in Canada and around the world. The roster includes: Astronaut Dave Williams, CBC Commentator Rex Murphy, former Governor General Michaelle Jean, Greenpeace Founder Patrick Moore, and Lt. General Roméo Dallaire, to name a few.
We are an active member of many organizations, including: Meeting Professionals International (MPI), Canadian Society of Association Executives (CSAE), and, as our subsidiary, Global Speakers Agency, with the International Association of Speaker's Bureaus (IASB) and convention bureaus across the country.
Owned and operated by Perry Goldsmith, the parent company Contemporary Group of Communications Companies became one of the largest communications company of its type in Canada, with a speakers bureau and a public relations firm. The divisions or affiliated companies include;

NSB RAVE REVIEWS
"Once again the National Speakers Bureau team helped me to find the perfect speaker to open our Annual National Conference of 800 delegates. NSB's ability to understand my parameters for a speaker saved me countless hours of research and I have yet to be disappointed with the speakers or the outcome. Job well done."

"Many thanks to you and your team at the National Speakers Bureau/Global Speakers Agency for helping to turn this around for us so quickly. I look forward to working with you again."
"You have been extremely helpful in this process, and I want you to know I appreciate it very much. Your agency was one of three that I investigated, and you were the only representative that made any further follow-up contact after my initial phone inquiry. I also think you provided speaker suggestions that most closely matched what we were looking for. If ever we need to book a speaker for any future event, please know that I will contact you and your agency first."
