About Leading Authorities, Inc.
We are people in the people business. At Leading Authorities, Inc. speakers bureau we work with amazing people—the incredible event and meeting professionals who keep us sharp as we find the perfect solution to their every challenge—the talented speakers we represent who “wow” audiences every time they hit a stage or a screen—our terrific colleagues who jump in with connections, ideas, and “been there, done that” best practices to make sure everyone looks good.
More than 30 years ago, when Mark French opened the doors at Leading Authorities, he created a client-focused business on the ideas that we could use our extensive knowledge of today’s trending topics, the deep insights we have of the talent we represent, our ability to generate fresh and exciting ideas, and our strong creative background to become a leader in the events industry. Today, Leading Authorities, Inc. houses three distinct lines of business—our premier speakers bureau, our video communications agency, and our live events production practice for in-person, virtual, or hybrid events—to help our clients tell their stories and reinforce key messaging.
