Bronwyn was also the first South African Bureau-owner to belong to the International Association of Speaker Bureaus, represented in twelve countries across the globe by its 109 members.
In line with her vision of helping to create and maintain an industry that is honourable, ethical and professional, Bronwyn also sat on the committee of the Northern Territories branch of SAACI (the South African Association for the Conference Industry).
She has spent all of her career as owner of Speakers Inc pro-actively, aggressively, passionately and creatively marketing speakers she believes in, steadfastly building her business on the four pillars of Honesty, Integrity, Loyalty and Trust.
She considers herself very blessed to work with people who inspire and motivate her on a daily basis, and to be in the position of facilitating the healing and empowerment of those audience members who need it, by those speakers who can do just that.
2015 saw Bronwyn nominated for the Regional Business Achiever’s Award by the Businesswoman’s Association in the Entrepreneur category, in which she was a finalist; she rekindled her affiliation with the Professional Speakers Association of Southern Africa, sitting on their board in Cape Town; incorporated a branch of Speakers Inc in California, USA and became the official City Organiser for PechaKucha Nights in Johannesburg.
You have a powerful message to share with audiences and a burning passion to jump up on stage and do just that.
But where and how do you start? And then: how do you get an agent?
