Events are all about the people. A lot of that has to do with who’s invited—or more importantly, who shows up. You can invite people like Aretha Franklin, Trent Lott, John Cleese, Terry McAuliffe, Steve Wozniak, Brad Paisley, and Darell Hammond, but they’re probably not going to come to your event (if they all did it would be quite a mix). Unless, of course, you’re using Leading Authorities. They are a Washington, DC and Chicago, IL based lecture agency that provides “top-tier speakers and nationally-recognized entertainment acts to events all over the world.” Yeah, you’ll have to pay a hefty sum, but how else will you get an impressive name to keynote your conference or sing at your party? Leading Authorities is also an “award-winning production house” and an event design firm. That means that you’ll be able to make the most of the talent that you bring in for your event—assuming that you, a recent college grad, are throwing a huge event.
Leading Authorities offers everything that’s necessary to put on an amazing event. They’re especially well networked in the worlds of politics and entertainment, so that’s where most of their talent comes from. If you browse through their talent roster, you’ll find a lot of familiar names and a lot of names that you haven’t heard of. Don’t overlook the people that you’ve never heard of though—they often make the most interesting speakers. To get a better idea of what Leading Authority offers, check out their video below.
If you think that a job at a lecture agency would be cool, you’re in luck because Leading Authorities is hiring. If you head over to their Jobs page, you’ll see that they have a Program Consultant opportunity in their Washington, DC office. The job appears to be suitable for new grads, and you can apply by sending a cover letter and résumé to email@example.com.
