Top5 Speaker Honorees for 2014


Each year, Speaking.com recognizes five speakers within ten popular topic areas. Excellence in speaking is based on: expertise, professionalism, client testimonials, presentation skills and original contribution to the field. The only substantive requirement is that the candidates’ standard keynote presentation fee be under $30,000USD. Once the nominees are chosen, online voters determine the final Top5 honorees.

Women speakers earned more honoree slots this year than any year in the past – almost sweeping some categories such as “Communication / Diversity”.

Over 12,000 votes were received at Speaking.com for the initial 165 nominees- from business leaders, educators, association members and others from around the world. Many voters praised the nominees for having a profoundly positive impact on their lives; a living testament to the far reach and valuable work of all the nominees. Please join us in congratulating your 2014 honorees!
